All Skrewed Up

All this new oi! and skinhead stuff we're into didn't just appear, it had been fermenting in England for years with bands like Sham 69 and this band. I love SHAM 69 but SKREWDRIVER has the look of today's skins and the music is a lot better. I wish I'd heard this album a few years ago instead of just last week. Too bad they broke up but I think it's still worth reviewing because hardly anyone in Ottawa has it or has even heard it.

The music is powerful and just as fast as today's skinhead stuff. The messages are still there. They're really saying something. I like all the songs -- it's a 12-inch 45 with 13 tracks -- but the best ones are "I Don't Like You", "Antisocial", "Confusion" and a first-rate version of the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again". Skrewdriver might be dead but at least we still have this album. Write to Chiswick and see if you can get hold of it.
