Recently released has been the new record of Denmarks finest THE GUV'NORS. A musical bastard between Oi!, High-Speed Rock'N'Roll and Beer, played by some veterans of the scandinavian scene. Some of them played in bands like THE OUTFIT before, the record is a co-release with our friends of longshot music and trueforce records.
We've also received the whole list of Garry Bushells picks or the upcoming "30 years of Oi!" compilation, including some of the Top Bands of the scene. It's so much, that we think about a release in 2 parts or a double LP! It's great stuff!
We've got some new stuff at the shop, check the new releases of the LOWER CLASS BRATS, TOXPACK and we will have some exclusive-merch of CONTROL at the end of the week!
