Swingin' Utters

Swingin' Utters is an American punk rock band that formed in the late 1980s. Having begun in Santa Cruz, California, the band moved to San Francisco where they are now based. They have been signed to Fat Wreck Chords since 1996. As well as being classed as a "punk revival" band (reminiscent of British 1970s bands such as Stiff Little Fingers, The Damned, Sham 69 and Eddie & The Hot Rods), Swingin' Utters have increasingly shown themselves to be influenced by Irish folk, particularly The Pogues.

Tower Blocks

Berlin, Germany's capital. The town of junk food, politicians, rich cunts but also probably the German Punk Rock capital. Berlin has got more to offer than old German history - Berlin's got the TOWER BLOCKS for example. Founded in 2001 this band is new in the Punk Rock Bizz but NEW doesn't mean boring or without talent. If you think this, the TOWER BLOCKS will prove you wrong. And its up to you after listening to their album to say sorry to the guys ha ha. This 4 German boys deliver fresh Oi!/ Streetpunk influenced by the likes of the 4 Skins, Sham 69, the Who and other genius.

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...

Runnin' Riot

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.

Evil Conduct

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.
