Oi Rare and Exotica

An international compilation, but without your usual English bands, rather bands from places like France, Japan, South America, Spain, Sweden, Argentina, Singapore, Canada, Columbia, Chile, Mexico, South Africa, New Zealand, Czech, Poland, Italy, Brazil, Greece, Germany! It covers a long time period from 1981 -1996 with single tracks off the bands 7"s. Don't be put off if you're thinking this is skinhead "oi" (I like all oi as long as it not fascist) as the music is quite varied punk in the "'82" vein ( like the super cover "Ultimos Rockers" by AntiSociales. I don't know how hard the vinyl is to get hold of, but you can get this on CD now. Taang has the record for $22, but I saw a CD for sale for 5 Euros at tone of the Oi sites. Buy your own and get a better recording than I have given you. There is also a Volume 2, but I don't have that. No track listing today as I am off to watch the footie final.
