Long Live The Discocks

Japanese Oi from one of the cutest bands ever, the Discocks. Long Live Oi was the bands debut full length after a long run of self releasing great 7" EPs. Soon after the release of this rollicking party album, The original Discocks split up and some members turned up in The Avoided, who if I remember correctly weren't all that interesting. A few years later a new Discocks line up appeared and started releasing albums, but I am not sure if any original members participated in this new incarnation. It gets a bit confusing, but Long Live Oi is really all you need to know. As promised by the cover, you get "10 OI! OI! Anthems" and three proud punker buddies to drink and sing along with. Long Live The Discocks!!!
