Band Bio / Discography

Classic Lineup:

Andy McGrath - vocals
Mick McGrath - guitar
Terry "Higgy" Higgins (aka Tez) - bass
Andy Garner - drums

Oi! band formed in 1978. They started off playing all the usual punk covers before writing their own stuff, the absolute best of which was the insanely catchy, if ridiculous, 'C.L.A.', which appeared on 1982's A Country Fit For Heroes. Their only other releases were a split 12" with The Crash and, finally, 'Liddle Towers', which was one of the highlights of Oi! Oi! That's Yer Lot!. They split in 1984.
