OLDFASHIONED IDEAS: Promises Mean Nothing: CD

I’m so fucking sick of fake nostalgia. Pictures of shit from the forties on a skinhead album. Shock me, shock me, shock me. Lyrically, this is so off it’s occasionally painful, and I’m not even getting into the missing space in the name. Or am I? I am. If you want your logo to consist of an O and an I, think of a fucking name that only has an O and an I. Anti-racist skins who claim “blues belong in sheds” and “country only draws in rats.” Genius lyricists, indeed. Musically, it’s second-rate street punk without the aggression or mandatory chant required to be oi!
