100% working class Oi! music from Holland Many times Evil Conduct was compared with legendary Oi! bands from the early eighties. They were even nicknamed "the Dutch Last Resort". Although the band regards this as a big compliment it is obvious that Evil Conduct has its own identity with its own distinctive sound. Their music may be classified as basic, straight-in-yer-face, sing-along working class Oi! with powerfull vocals.

The North London band's rise to fame began with a live review in Sounds, written by none other than Mensi of the Angelic Upstarts, who was so impressed by the group that he raved about them for weeks after, and this was only their fourth gig. While supporting CHELSEA and The dark at the Lyceum, they apparently blew both bands off the stage, getting rave reviews inserval fanzines of the time. Garry Bushell who then wrote for the music paper Sounds, asked the band to appear on the second Oi! album "Strenght Thru Oi!" and the group contributed two tracks...

They released two singles in this form, with Lindsay, sister of Mackie from Blitz, being the drummer. A new guitarist was recruited for their album before they split up in late 1983. Gary later turned up in a revamped Blitz and provided the vocals on their "Killing Dream" album. Gary and Lindsay married in 1985.
From an elementary foundation of punk and oi, Runnin' Riot have developed a really solid stock of melodic punk gems, skinhead anthems and street rock attitude. Having now seemingly played everywhere from Michigan to Llandudno, they’ve honed their live presentation even further and serve as a guiding light for the Irish punk underworld.
