Last Resort on Captain Oi
Led by the legend that is Millwall Roi Pearce, the Last Resort were yet another band to emerge from the "Strength Thru Oi!” launch pad. Unable to afford a vinyl single they released their debut recordings on cassette (now a super rare Oi! collectable) and followed up with their own self financed album, "A Way Of Life- Skinhead Anthems” (the favourite album of all time of Rancid guitarist Lars Frederiksen).
They really were one of the first DIY Oi! bands! Their Crucified Skin imagery has become something of a must have tattoo for many Skinheads and their songs have been covered by the likes of Madball, Sick Of It All, Death Threat and Harley Cro-Mag amongst others If that ain’t proof of their influence and importance then I don’t what is!.
