Anyway you guys, are getting, off the subject. Politics is boring and sucks arse. How it has anything, to do with music. Which should be something, you listen to, cheer yourself up. Well I thought, Oi was about having a laugh. RAC isn't in many ways Oi. Musically, it has a lot more metal or hard rock influences. Which was deliberately, done I've read, to appeal to a wider audience. Gobsmakt weren't at all, a nazi band. Nor to my knowledge, were any of them Nazis, whilst playing in Gobsmakt. In the past though, most skinheads in NZ, definetly in the 80's. Would have saluted. Look at the book Staunch, for those that haven't seen it, was a 90's book, on various NZ gangs. Black Jack from the Droogs, a part Maori Skinhead back then, was saluting, in the Skinhead section. They described themselves, as unemployed Panzer drivers. Droogs weren't Nazi's. The swastika was worn, to shock people. By all kinds of groups, Bikers, Mob, Punks etc. Was Sid Vicious, a Nazi? Who knows, I personally couldn't give a fuck, coz hes long dead. Didn't actually play, on Never Mind The Bollocks. But wasn't a bad singer, wish I still had Sid Sings LP. Anyway I suck, politics sucks and back to the subject. Or its back to KUNT & THE GANG, what was I thinking, when I posted that.
Cheers for the comment, about Bludgers doing good version of Bad Man cover. What you guys, didn't know was. After we received, our free onstage Illusions, from Lorraine and Jon from Ward Lane, was our CD release. Which 2 my disgust. I have since found out, it is now illegal, for a bar, to have a shaker?? Chenoa told me. I was actually feeling 2 pissed to sing and play guitar. So, I asked Crazy Greymouth Geoff, (was once in a band called Monster from Christchurch as well, we once played a gig with) who was in the audience, to sing, the song for us. It has a bit of tricky guitaring, on the 12th fret and at time, still am. I was digging Rejects big time. Id watched James play it, in set prior. I thought wait on, if you listen, close as, I been playing geetar, for awhile. Is actually, bit more 2 it. Was just for a laugh. Sobered me up enough, to carry on with the set, afterwards.
I never wanted to be the singer, or ever set out to sing. Ewan had done a bit of glue, in younger years. So he often, had trouble, remembering when to come in, with the lyrics. That was why I did so much vocals, while he was in the band. Also 2 try make chorus's more yobbo. Once he did come in though, I always thought, we were a better band and he was the better vocalist, than myself. We played faster, only reason slowed down, was due to that was all I could sing 2. Shame really. But cheers Ewan for the time, you were with us. And cheers to anyone that helped us sing, minus Will who fucked it up big time. But was about having a laugh, shame I think Gripper is the only band left, from all the bands, we played with? Around the country, is Horror story still goin? Ahh forgot about Bazooka, Infinite Justice. Sorry if, I've overlooked any other band.
Now back to Contemporary Oi from nowdays that Dsn't Suck. How did No Class get on here, or the Bludgers. They both Suck, Bludgers is RIP
