Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

THE REDSKINS - Neither Washington Nor Moscow

A great album that I've been meaning to post for a while... "The Redkins' "Neither Washington Nor Moscow (But International Socialism)". Issued in 1983, this overtly political band predated the Red Wedge movement, Weller & Bragg...

Coming next... The Slits & The Adverts...


  1. I'd almost forgotten about this one, thanks for the reminder.

  2. Fabulous album. I have the original vinyl. It's from 1986. It doesn't predate Billy Bragg who's first album was in 83 and definitely not Weller as the Jam were around since 77. It doesn't even predate Red Wedge who were touring in '86. Surprising really that The Redskins were never on the line up. Trivia: Steve White of Paul Weller's Style Council was also briefly drummer for The Redskins :)
