1. Product Details
It has been forty years since the release of "Oi - The Album". Four decades of laughter, defiance and working class rebellion. To celebrate it's ruby anniversary, Garry Bushell - who put together that very first Oi compilation in 1980 - has teamed up with Pirates Press Records to present this superb new album: Oi! 40 Years Untamed. This hard-hitting collection features exclusive, unheard songs from the Oi pioneers, and original tracks from younger, up-and coming bands from around the world. Oi was a form of raw working class punk that developed in England as a reaction against the dilution of punk's original ethics and energy. Socialist poet Garry Johnson says: "Oi wasn't about fashions or hair-cuts or dodgy politics. Oi was the reality of punk mythology. It was the sound of the backstreets, of untamed hooligan youth carving out their own future in a system where the odds were stacked against them." Former rock press writer, Bushell says: "I saw Oi as Springsteen's lyrics come true - 'the hungry and the hunted explode in rock 'n' roll bands'. It was fresh and exhilarating. That's why I put the first Oi sampler together." The mainstream media never understood Oi. How could they? The Oi bands and fans came from places they didn't want to go. As early as 1977, street punks were disillusioned with rip-off Kings Road boutiques and the fact that many punk heroes were living a lie. The Cockney Rejects and the Angelic Upstarts were the start of something new, raw and authentic. Bushell called it "Oi". The Oi bands did not hate bands like the Clash and Gen X. But they had an authenticity that the punk pioneers could only dream of. Consequently the Oi sound was harder, the choruses bigger, the anger more real. It's message remains the same: The kids, united, will never be defeated.
