Dead & Burried
Legendary Welsh anti-fascist oi! band formed in Cardiff in 1981, the Oppressed is the UK punk band who most openly expressed opposition to the racist and right-wing influenced ideals spreading in the skinhead scene in the early 80s. Personally promoting the SHARP ('Skinheads Against racial prejudices') ideals to British Skinheads through lyrics and interviews, both on-stage and in real life, their singer and leader Roddy Moreno lived his life as a mission, happening to write some of the finest working class punk rock anthems ever along the way. "Dead And Buried" collects the first two, self-financed singles by the Oppressed, "Victims" and "Never Say Die", both originally released in 1983, along with their 1983 "Oi! The Tape" complete session. This is OI! music at its best.
