At last a British band to believe in! Goldblade deal high energy punk-rock-hooligan-blues like The Clash on amphetamines! Formed in the mid nineties by John Robb, ex-frontman of The Membranes, Goldblade have been flying the flag for insurrectionary punk rock in the UK. ‘Strictly Hardcore’ is their debut American release - a collection of the best tracks of their three studio albums - it perfectly showcases the bands adventurous varying styles. From the exuberant punk rock blast of the title track to the ska-tinged ‘16 Tons’ to the funk-soul power of ‘hairstyle’ Goldblade pulls it all together with a tight, hard punk rock ethic.
