Degeneration - Standing Tall - lim.yellow LP

quote/review from http://oiofamerica.blogspot.de/
With the fuzz and thump of 90's Oi!, Degeneration is back. For some this will be the first album they hear from these longstanding Midwest Oi!sters. This album is well done Skinhead rock music. From the rumble of the bass or catchy chorus on "Back With A Bang" (Not the song by that other band ). Chris smooths his voice out for this tale of past skinhead glory and rocking with his band since 1994. 
   The band hits a home run early with "The Face Of Oi!" a dark sound and haunting feel is what the band delivers on this song of frustration and why for me Oi! will always be my voice. Love the raw vocals and add the heavy bottom end this one rocks.
 I love being a skinhead and love skinhead culture. Now I am American and for me somethings did not translate to the states like... I do not like soccer I watch Hockey and Football, I do not ride scooters I am a Muscle car, motorcycle fan.  So with that said "2-stroke buzz" rocks. Yea I am not down with scooters and such but let me tell you this song nails it with a amazing guitar rock sound driven by heavy rhythms.  The song has a heavy R&B vibe with just a touch of  surf in the guitar.
   A bombastic intro and a big fucking Oi! starts off "keen Fists" Simply honest and heartfelt ode to the violence sometimes left in your wake. This track won me over with the line " You may not like us you may not like your scene  don't even look away you stupid Hippie".  Fucking good stuff.
   The band has no problem laying down some American skinhead rock and on "Stand Tall" that is what they deliver. Fans of Niblick Henbane, The Service, The Bruisers, and Brass Tacks will dig this track for sure. "Skinhead Problems" hit with a intro that could have come off a Blitz record it is so good. Bouncy and punchy is in the rhythm and cutting guitars  lay down the foundation for the vocals to deliver a song of woe, violence,  and drinking.  The song is fun and puts a smile on my face every time I listen to it. 
   Heavy is the song "The Truth". Lead vocals are packed with rage and delivered through a aged rasp.  Sonically the track cuts like a chainsaw. This song is on attack. Attack of the state of this country today.  For this song alone seek this album out. One of the best songs on the album.
    What would a skinhead album be with out a battle anthem ? nothing I say, nothing. Degeneration gives us said anthem on "War On The Streets". The drums give us the role of tanks, the bass lines hit like bombs over head and the guitars cut like automatic weapons fire. Chris barks over the top giving the track a raw violent sound that will make you want to tighten you boots a little tighter and grab your flight slip in to the night for some ultra violence.
   With a tempo and vibe that remind me of the 4-Skins evil comes the powerhouse "Tell Us". this songs hits like gasoline on the flame in my heart! the track slams with a 80's hardcore sound and rage. That is a great recipe for a great song.
   Finishing off the album is the ode to youth "When We Were Skins". rubbery intro starts off this mid tempo stomper. This song is all bounce and rhythm with guitars riffing over the top just giving it enough pepper to keep the song spicy. 
   With all the bands trying to do sugar Oi!,  Mod influenced Oi!, Boover Glam Rock or what ever they are calling these versions of crossover, a Skinhead Oi! Album is refreshing. Like a strong cup of coffee is how this album hit me. It brings you back to the roots of the sound and the heart of our culture. The band keep a sonic edge on the album by not cleaning it up to much, Keeping that old feel. A feel and sound that never gets old to me. So go to the bands page and buy this album. This record would be a great gift for any fan of Oi! or any old bitter fucking Skinhead.
  Before I go I have to give the band kudos for  putting the album out themselves. Great job fella's.

For fans of : The Service, 4-Skins, The Business, The Blitz, The Brass Tacks, The Outsiders, Niblick Henbane, Last Resort The Strike, Tough Skins, and The Fat Skins.
