To mark the 20th anniversary of the formation of the band, Trisol is proud to make THE SKINFLICKS' long out-of-print debut album available again. â€˜Lies, Damned Lies And Skinhead Stories' was originally released in the year 2000, and thus brought some of the much needed, old UK sound into the new millenium. This proverbially long-awaited debut album appeared after two roaring demo releases (the early â€˜Cider Lane 77â€˜ and the exquisitely rough â€˜Steel-Toe Anthemsâ€˜) and is packed with a bunch of top notch Oi!-singalongs that have since made their way into the classic canon of the scene. Songs like â€˜Lionheartsâ€˜, â€˜Gods and Lawsâ€˜ and many others are gritty street punk classics that will make any boot boys' heart pound with pride. With tracks like â€˜We're their Targetâ€˜ and â€˜A Movementâ€˜, the band successfully reinterpreted some of their earlier work. Most notably, the album also includes the band's most controversial â€˜I hate Hippiesâ€˜, a song that has since developed a life of its own, even beyond the streetpunk scene.
â€˜Lies, Damned Lies And Skinhead Stories' is an absolute Oi!-classic that ranks among the best debuts of all times, no less. These bootboy chants are both catchy and kicking, featuring authentic, tongue-in-cheek lyrics on Way Of Life, hooliganism and ...well, pizza, evidently. A rough-around-the-edges sound make this release a must-have for anyone into old-school streetpunk. This re-release (LP+CD) comes in beautiful red vinyl and is strictly limited to 500 copies.
