Anti Social - Battle Scarred Skinheads!

Hailing from Blackpool Anti Social issued three singles in the early 80`s on the Beat The System label and this 17 track collection includes them all plus eight previously unreleased cuts including a version of Sham 69`s ''What Have We Got''. WE WERE A BAND FORMED Summer of 1979-Summer of July 1984 Blackpool’s second best punk band, formed 1979, split by 1984. 3 singles and some demos which are all on a Captain Oi! retro CD now. Became more skinhead influenced as they went on and underwent a change of singer. Bassist Daz later formed Skin Up, who recorded a promising demo but split before they got to release anything on vinyl. What ever happened to this lot, both bands were unheard of in Leeds at the time so only about 30 people turned up even though it was only about 50p to get in but they were both really good. This looks like a home made cd of their first (and maybe only though I’m not sure) single. 4 tracks "Back Street Boys", "Your Choice", "New Punks" and "Screw U". All very basic sounding punk/oi and not that well recorded and you have to remember how old this is and back then bands didn’t have any fancy gizmos or computers or even the money to produce a masterpiece, still they made a better job than some bands today.
