"Ar ceòl ar cànan ar-a-mach"
Year:  2006

Time:  40 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:          Punk         Hardcore



















"Ar Cànan, Ar Ceòl, Ar-A-Mach" is an album by the anarcho-punk band Oi Polloi. It was released in 2006 by the band on CD and on vinyl in 2007. This is the first full-length rock LP sung entirely in Gaelic since Runrig released their "Play Gaelic" LP in 1979. This is very Oi Polloi in style musically but better than much of their recent stuff. Its an interesting debate the relevance of local languages and how to keep them real. Oi Polloi have nailed their black flags to the mast of Gaelic with some conviction and released this CD by themselves all in Gaelic.

"Omnicide" is an anarcho-punk 7" EP, by the band Oi Polloi. It was released in 1991 by "Words of Warning Records". The initial run of the record sold out and was never re-released. It has been commented by the band that they were not happy with the way this record turned out (Deek's vocals in particular are very unusual), which led to the re-recording of "Victims of a Gas Attack" and the tracks "Dealer in Death" and "Die for BP" being rewritten as "John Major, Fuck You!" and "Let the boots do the talking" respectively. These tracks can also be found on the "Six of the best" compilation CD. Cover comes in the form of a 16 page booklet.

Format:  LP , CD
Tracks:  11
Time:  34 min.
Genre:  rock

This "In defense of our earth" is probably one the best OI POLLOI albums recorded ever but not the best. This is my personal opinion. But it is curious that in 1990, the album went unnoticed by most of the hardcore / punk community, almost nobody spoke about it. OI POLLOI take risks and move away from the typical punk and oi! music, basically to take influences from thrash-metal, but also folk, spoken words, etc. The format vinyl was really beautiful and included a booklet with lyrics and some views of the band. The aesthetics of the booklet iwas entirely of old fanzine (paper, cut and paste), but the cover and back-cover of the album have some hippie, psychedelic or even eco-pacifist influences. Anyway was and is a great album which I recommend for those who like the band and the genre.

Mad As Fuck"

Format:  CD
Tracks:  5
Time:  15 min.

TOXIC EPHEX come from Aberdeen in the north of Scotland. They got together in 1979 and made the vinyl debut on the "Bullshit Detector" compilation LP on Crass records in 1982 with the track Police Brutality with a kind of moderate melodic punk rock. They released their first 7”, the classic "Fallout Shelter" on local Aberdeen record label "Green Vomit records" in 1986. First few copies that appeared had a hand made black and white sleeve glued together by the band themselves as they could not wait for the proper sleeves to arrive! Also on Green Vomit was the bands debut album which was a split record with Edinburgh’s legendary anarcho punk band Oi Polloi. The band went on to release a few other singles over the years and one full length album. Over the last few years (2010) the band have been quite active and played a few live gigs again in Scotland. The band reformed originally in 1999 with Frank Benzie being replaced on guitar. The band embarked on a mini tour on Scotland with The Men They Couldn't Hang as well as returning to their second home, Shetland. This reformation soon fizzled out with Fred leaving. A completely new lineup was put together with only Dod Chiz and Frank remaining from the original lineup. This incarnation played their famed comeback gig with the Dead Kennedys in Aberdeen. The band soon split again, but were to reform with Fred and Mikey again for their 25th anniversary. The band now regularly host one off gigs. In 2006, Runnin Feart' fanzine released TOXIC EPHEX's first new recording in over 15 years, the 7" single "Civilised". Topplers records from Scotland were so impressed that they have gone on to reissue most of their back catalogue, with plans afoot to re-released everything on a double CD set.
