Split LP 2013 Aggrobeat Records

Aggrobeat records has released a split LP with 4 songs by ‘Halbstarke Jungs’ and 6 songs by ‘The Warriors’.

‘Halbstarke Jungs’ was founded in 2008 and mostly brings streetcore/Oi songs in the German language. For this split they contributed 4 songs, 3 in English and one (Spiel Verderber) in their mother tongue. ‘Spiel Verderber’ features Schulle from Toxpack and, to me, this song is their best contribution to this split album.

The better songs from this split LP come from ‘The Warriors, a British Oi band formed in 1981 by original Last Resort singer Saxby (after calling it quits a few years later they reformed in the mid nineties). Before and after the recording of their ‘Never Forgive, Never Forget’ album (2012) ‘The Warriors’ did several other studio sessions re-recording some older songs, recording a few covers and … This split LP features songs from these sessions including a cover of ‘Violence In Our Mind’ by the Last Resort and ‘Watch Your Back’ by ‘Cock Sparrer’.

Fans of British Oi like The Last Resort and Cock Sparrer should get this, its a good addition to your collection. 7,5/10
