Two of the East Coast’s longest-standing, most adored oi bands are celebrated here on a nifty, unexpected split 12”. Broken Heroes arose from the wonderful Headache Records scene and are known for mixing comedy with boot beats, whereas Armed Suspects play it straighter. Both bands prove here that they haven’t aged at all, and that’s a good thing. Some of the songs are new altogether, whereas others are re-recordings of classics those in the know already love. Oi! The Boat is a label that’s keeping the fire alive, and at domestic prices, too. For an added good time, check out the Armed Suspects music video that’s surfacing online. Maybe some of Broken Heroes’ sense of humor is wearing off on them.
