Won't Say Sorry - The Complete
Cover Story, 2CD
Double CD collection of all the cover songs The Oppressed ever
recorded. Slade, 4Skins, Madness, Sham, Last Resort, the Rejects,
and more! Even has a couple of reggae covers performed by the
band as the Rude Boys.
After the split in '84, Roddy Moreno spent the next 6 years setting
up and running Oi! Records and Ska Records labels, helped to establish
S.H.A.R.P and in 1987/8, put together The Rude Boys with his brothers
Dom and Adrian (R.I.P) and 3 sax players. By the end of the eighties
the Rude Boys had fallen apart and the labels were struggling.
There was a baby (THE Oi! BOY) on the way so Roddy had to give
up on music and get a job.
"I put The Oppressed back together in 1994 after some Fascist
shite had been putting up C'18 (Niggers Out) stickers in my area.
I tore off the stickers and thought 'fuck this' and set out to
use the band's profile to Fight Fascism again. For the next 2
years me, Dom and Adrian recorded some Anti-Fascist records including
the benefit E-P 'FUCK FASCISM'. We played a few local 'Shows for
the Boys' including our farewell gig with the Warriors which was
filmed for the THEY THINK IT'S ALL OVER - IT IS NOW video. Although
this was our farewell gig we received an offer we couldn't refuse,
to play the Camden Irish Center for ANTI-FASCIST ACTION (Oct'
5th 1996). The Business had a gig wrecked by C'18 because they
wouldn't have C'18 provide security. The Fascists then announced
that no Oi! bands could play London without C'18 security. The
lads from A-F-A said 'FUCK THAT' and arranged a concert for us.
Floyd was now in the band on guitar and this was his one and only
gig with us. The Stage Bottles had come from Germany to support
us. It was a top night. Just like back in '81, no trouble at all.
It was one of our best gigs and, not surprisingly, C'18 became
1998 saw THE OPPRESSED back together with a new drummer (YAN)
to do some more recording. Now it's 2004 and they're back in rehearsals.
The latest line up is still Roddy, Dom and Floyd, with Tony Kizmus
(ex-Societys Rejects) on drums. As one of the only long-standing
true skinhead bands, THE OPPRESSED have stayed the course through
thick and thin. Always loyal to their roots. Never pandering to
the bullshit of the mainstream music industry. One-off live dates
in Germany, Belgium, Italy, and Canada have been organized for
the band in 2005.
