Maybe this is what happens when gnarly hardcore dudes start a tongue in cheek Oi! band, or maybe these are gnarly skinheads with a penchant for knuckledragging US hardcore. Regardless of the origination and/or motivation, the breakdowns here are serious shit and BASEMENT BOYS treat UK street punk with complete disrespect, just dominating the sound with girth and testosterone. One song about fighting, one song about mutual respect and an intolerance for oppression and one about their arguably unhealthy obsession with breasts...and then there's the uncredited maximum energy techno track called "The Dominator" that reinforces the impression that these dudes would be pretty fun to hang out with.

The Tower Skins cannot be denied // /The Basement Boys, they are worldwide
