Complete this sentence, please
Dull, repetitive rubbish played by talentless idiots and loved by those unable to cope with complex musical structure of any kind.
The people who like it.
there is nothing wrong with simple music. i don't like how there are hardly any girls at gigs though
I'm picking up on a lot of class-based snobbery
not all bad - chumbawamba did this:
"This song was released under the band name Skin Disease on an Oi compilation, and was intended as a joke about Oi music and oiks in general."
This is for Gary Bushell
I'm Thick (repeat)
...I've never heard any of their tunes.
...it's all the fucking same.
it's just stuck. There's the odd decent oi! tune, but for the most part it's ugly, artless and joyless. Simplicity is one thing, grunting is another. And there's been fuck all development in 25 years, so even if you liked oi! in the early 80s, I don't begin to understand why you'd keep listening
The main thing wrong with Oi! music is...going to be along shortly.
....we're running down the backstreets, oi oi oi,
and we're never giving in, oi oi oi,
cos we all know, that we're gonna fucking win.....
...not much really tbh.
When I was a kid it was great fun. I ended up getting into ska via covers like The Oppressed doing Skinhead Girl.
<goes off to dig out Oi! Chartbusters>
Next up: Psy-Trance!
Here at last! Sorry if i was late!!
I don't think they know the difference between the Oppressed and Skrewdriver
... the Oi! diehards.
It's alright for a laugh but it's not really the best alternative way of life any more Get some scope, ffs!
see, once again you're making assumptions. I certainly know the difference, and I'm sure lots of people on this thread do.
Some of them on here said it's all the same
I really really hate to call anybody thick, but trev, you are well fucking thick.
Where the fuck is your winterval spirit, Dill?
........ it's co-option by, and sadly wide association with, far-right politcs and boneheads. Ie Hamborough Tavern Southall and the 'Strength thru Oi' album cover being far more of a reminder than the phrase 'Oi for England and England for the workers'. Even though the actual fash bands never called themselves Oibut White Noise or summat equally shite.
Quite like it as it goes, but nowhere near as much as reggae and soul.
The Oi bands rom the late 70's early 80's, ie Cock Sparrer, The Last Resort, Infa Riot, Cockney Rejects, The Business are way better than the stuff that came later and are 'new' such as The Crack, Argy Bargy, Burial etc etc.
As for Skrewdriver, the first Album on Chiswick is pretty fucking good.
Hardly the norm, eh, trev?
I have ruined winterval for everybody. Charles Dickens should write a winterval carol to show me the error of my ways.
Jesus fuck, imagine that. The Ghost of Trev To Come
although trev lives in the past so he's got that one covered
Jefe's right you know, trev. Part of being a mature adult is knowing when to put your hands up and say "fair enough, I was wrong" and just walk away. I think, deep down, you probably know that this is such a time for you.
We could call it "How the Muslims stole Winterval"!
A course of action you and Jefe are exemplars of, of course
Separate names with a comma.
