no place to go 'cause they sold out the working man

HARRINGTON SAINTS - "DEAD BROKE IN THE U.S.A." ("PIRATES PRESS RECORDS" / "CONTRA RECORDS"; CD):

Yeahr, that's some great stuff that the HARRINGTON SAINTS from the U.S.A. are bringing to us with this full length record, some truly outstanding American Oi! Oi! music for our pleasure and enjoyment, and what shall I say, it's just truly great and fantastic stuff that these guys are giving us to eat respectively to hear here. Powerful and hymnal songs, full of larger than life excessive (what's totally positive meant) finger-point-sing-a-long-parts, marked by fantastic charismatic, strong and full lead vocals, forceful back up shouts, hard and very unerring guitar riffing (that's all the time glisten with incredible good melodic leads, and that's just great, 'cause it totally rocks and especially rules), a very good played and very present bass work, and massive and forward pushing drumming, and that all without getting some kind of boring or what-so-ever, very well-versed and also interesting respectively diverse in a grapping and good way done, and you know what, these guys know what they want and how they have to do it right, damn that's exactly how I want my daily dose of great Oi! Oi! music, fuckin' great stuff!!! The music is driving you with so much unresistable power forward, that you can't stand still, you have to slip in your Levi's jeans, pull your boots on, lacing 'em tight, get in your Troublemaker shirt, grap your Harrington jacket, go down the city tonight and unleash yourself and all that waits in ya and let 'em all know that there's hell to pay, that you'll never back down!!! Mix the legendary and unforgotten great THE ANTI-HEROS with (older) PRESSURE POINT (also one of my absolutely favorite bands), with some PATRIOT marks (if you take their great "WE, THE PEOPLE" record, and, by the way, also one of my top-five-ever-bands), and melt it all together with a very strong own identity and a very specific character, then you have the splendid HARRINGTON SAINTS!!! Great band, the guys know how to play and especially how to write songs, great stuff!!! On top of it we do also get just very good lyrics, critical of society, outspoken when it comes to politics, and also they deal with some more or less personal issues as well as they are giving us a bunch of really good Skinhead Way of Life and Boots & Aggro lyrics, all 100% authentic stuff!!! The production sound is awesome good, and the artwork just killer!!! And there's also an LP version out, and okay, don't ask me why I don't own the LP version, why I haven't ordered it instead of the CD version, I don't know it and so I can't tell it you. However... It's just a great record of a fantastic band, and if ya need any songs to listen to at first, then just try "DEAD BROKE IN THE U.S.A.", "BOOTSTRAPS", "GUILTY", "WORKING CLASS FRIDAY NIGHT", "KINGS' SCHILLING" and "A NATION DIVIDED", but also the other songs are just outshining stuff. Ah, and in the case you don't know it already: Get this damn record!!! Get it!!! Now!!! Cheers & Oi! (10 of 10 points)
Now you do get a very, very good live video of the great "DEAD BROKE IN THE U.S.A." anthem of the HARRINGTON SAINTS to get an impression of the quality, the power, and the passion of this very fine band!!! I hope that the video will work out the way it should out work, and then just enjoy it!!! Ah, but first of it now you do get the incredible good lyrics of this just pure and truly great track. So, here we go!!! Oi! Oi! Oi!
HARRINGTON SAINTS - "DEAD BROKE IN THE U.S.A."
Another paycheck has come and gone
And there's nothin' left to live on
That's just not OK
I'm dead broke in the USA
Forgotten masses all on their knees
So many mouths to feed
It's just not OK
You bet I got somethin' to say...
We got no place to go
'Cause they sold out the working man
No place to go
'Cause they sold out the working man
"Take it or leave it" is all they understand
Dad worked 'til his dying day
What am I supposed to say
Generation X failed me well
They can all go straight to Hell
Another paycheck has come and gone
I got nothin' left to live on
It's just not OK
I'm dead broke in the USA

(Ah, sorry, if the cover picture above is really looking that awful like it seems to look right now, don't know what went wrong with the upload and somehow I just couldn't improve it, so that it may look better...)
