THE 4 SKINS - (1999) - The Best Of The 4 Skins

This legendary Oi!/punk band was formed back in 1979 and they broke up in 1984. It's a bit weird to write about them cos I liked them a lot when I started listening to them and you can't deny them giving the ''A.C.A.B.'' slogan to the world of angry cop hating youths (together with a couple of really great Oi!/punk songs), but then there were some really dodgy people in that band like their guitarist Paul Swain (from 1983-1984 period) who later played in those nazi scums Skrewdriver. And being connected with Garry Bushell (who looked like a pimp when I first saw him in that 1983 ''UK/DK'' movie that I've mentioned in some of my previous posts) doesn't give them many positive points in my book. However, this is a very good release and I hope you enjoy it! It looks like The 4 Skins got back together in 2007 cos I've found their MySpace page, and there's also an article about The 4 Skins on Wikipedia, and you can also check The 4 Skins fan page I've stumbled upon which has a lot of info like their pics, lyrics, bio, discography, etc.

I think the best work by this band is their Bumper Sessions Demo available on "A Few 4 Skins More Vol. II" double LP on Link records.
It's way better than their 2 LP releases with raw production and fierce playing. Paul Swain was in the band at one time but this band existed only for a few years with 3 or 4 different line-ups none lasting very long.
