FOR THE LAST COPIES OF THIS OUTSTANDING RELEASE WE GIVE SOME LIMITED SCREENPRINTED PATCHES FOR FREE!!!
Right on time before their first euro tour starts we are proud to present the first collaboration between Contra and one of our claimed favorite bands.
The BRASSKNUCKLE BOYS are something special, they have something which most bands of today do not have: they are unique, they are kind of dangerous and mystic.
Probably it's because frontman Mark, who is able to put a lot of distress but also rage and aggressiveness into his voice. BRASSKNUCKLE BOYS sound like a bastard of a irish construction worker and a beauty from the south.
Of course an 100% american Oi! band, the "Blue Collar Working Class Sound" of bands such as THE BRUISERS or PATRIOT will be found in their music as same as an undeniable liking of Country and 70ies Rock, plus a lot of UK-Punk influences from bands such as STIFF LITTLE FINGERS or ABRASIVE WHEELS.
At this 7" we have a previously unreleased song called "You think you're happy" which Mark wrote during his imprisonmet at the well known "Three Cell House" at the Kentucky State Prison. Next song is an alternative version of the "Manhood's only Kings" song, which you probably know from their split with STOMPER 98. Third song is an alternative cover of the BEE GEES classic "New York Mining Disaster".
