Skrewdriver- All Skrewed Up (1977)

This got to be one of most controversial and miss understood record in the history of punk rock. Skrewdriver was formed in 1976 by front man Ian Stuart, influenced after seeing the Sex Pistols in Manchester that same year. At first the band came out as a punk image, but quickly became the first skinhead band, and was always performed by a large skinhead audience since their beggining which most of the time the show had to be shut down do to skinhead violence. This record and the early Skrewdriver, they did not supported any political parties till the band split up in '79 and later in '82 when Ian reformed Skrewdriver with new members, the band came out as a far right National Socialist band (Ian was the only original member of Skrewdriver when they reformed). In my opinion this is one of the best records of all time, even though I get shit from other skins or punks for listening to their early stuff, I do not support the second face of the band. It's sad in a way, because if Ian changed the name when they reformed in '82, Skrewdriver wouldn't have this reputation, but thats not how things went.

My Note: Whatever you know about Skrewdriver being A racist band came after this record. If You Like punk or Oi give this record an honest listen, It is one of the best punk records ever written.
