Between 1986 and 1989 Roddy Moreno from The Oppressed released five volumes in the famous Skins ‘n’ Punks series through his label Oi! Records. Now, over 25 years since Oi! Records called it a day, Insurgence (North-America) and Aggrobeat (Europe) have decided to release a new volume. The Oppressed serve up five new tracks and reworkings, plus a Prowlers cover and a newly-recorded version of White Flag, which is the first time with Roddy on vocals. The original 1982 version featured Martin Brennan on vocals. The Prowlers offer six previously unreleased cuts, including blistering covers of Poblers United’s ‘Antifascist Skin’ and The Oppressed’s ‘Urban Soldiers’.
