Hooligan "Criminal Damage"
Sophomore offering from Dublin's punk rock stalwarts, HOOLIGAN. Four tracks of the classic punk rock sound that you'd expect from these veterans of the scene. It bites like an Upstarts record from the opening guitar line and that probably has more than a little to do with the line-up of musicians on this record. Backing him up on this release, HOOLIGAN frontman guitar/vox David Linehan has Tony Van Frater (Cockney Rejects) on bass/guitar, with Decca Wade and Nick Buck (original and latter Angelic Upstarts) splitting drum duties. Produced by Mond Crowie (Angelic Upstarts) and Decca Wade. These are four songs that are built on a solid framework of punk rock longevity and to quote Mr. Linehan, "The result sounds class." Yes it does!
((((in production....Oxley's Midnight Runners))))))

DUFFY'S CUT S/T 12" / CD
DUFFY'S CUT- 12" and CD
Oi! the Boat is proud to introduce Philadelphia's DUFFY'S CUT. As soon as we heard Duffy's Cut's demo, we were hooked. The sound is British invasion and Motown with broken glass and baseball bats. It sounds like what I imagine would have happened if the hard mods and skinheads of the late 60s would have stepped off the dance floor and on to the stage. If the Small Faces had big boots, they may have sounded this way. In case my description is shit: Duffy's Cut sounds like a band of punks and skins who's record collection is as broad as it is deep. They manage to wear their American soul, Brit invasion, punk and Oi! influences on their sleeve while, somehow, creating a sound that is as unique as it is infectious. As a bit of trivia, you might recognize some of DUFFY'S CUT from their previous bands (The Boils, Super Hi-Five, Bad Idea, Cranked Up! and Violent Society).
VICTORY/BRICK ASSASSIN "BEST OF MIDWEST OI!" 7"

VOi!CE of America Vol. 3 V/A EP (7")
Volume 3 of the wildly popular VOi!CE of America 7 inch series is here! This round we take a look at the best in American Oi! from the north eastern quadrant of the USA... Oi! the Boat Headquarters is located smack dab in this quadrant- right in the MIDWEST- and you might notice that we barely had to leave our backyard to fills both sides of this installment!
We start with midwest Oi! veterans THE BRASS TACKS! The Wisconsin thug-n-roll darlings are back and they definitely didn't opt to answer our call for new music from them by relying on their name and slapping together some unmemorable crap. Instead they built on their past sound and delivered what may just be their best music yet. If their opening track on this EP doesn't have you off your lazy-boy and at-the-ready to smash some sorry son of a bitch, you are going to want to go ahead and trade-in your docs for a casket or, at a minimum, some fuzzy slippers and a drink with parasol. If the BRASS TACKS weren't already long-ago permanently and irrevocably inducted in the American Oi! hall of fame, this track would put them there. GRIND EM DOWN!!!!!!
Next up, we head west to the TWIN CITIES to catch up with VICTORY. Their debut EP "Laced Up" was 2013's Oi shot-heard-round-the world, and their follow-up TWIN CITIES EP was hot on Laced Up's heels to show the world that VICTORY is no one-pump-chump. As if there was any doubt in anyone's mind, "MIDWEST UNREST" shows, once again, that VICTORY is unstoppable. This is an absolutely outstanding punk rock anthem about America's oi and punk rock heartland.
From Minnesota, we head back to Wisconsin stopping in the city that brought you Laverne, Shirley and hundreds of millions of gallons of BEER to pick up ASSAULT AND BATTERY. If you are from outside the current hotbed of American punk and oi, this may be the first you've heard of them. Their effort on VOi!CE of America Volume 3 ensures it won't be last.
Finally, we sail west on Lake Michigan and then portage The Boat named Oi! overland to DETROIT to catch up with Motor City's BAD ASSETS. As if filling this EP with 4 bands from the midwest and Victory inciting a flyover country riot with MIDWEST UNREST weren't enough, the Assets force thousands of rust-and-bible-belt fists sharply into the air with 4 simple words: MIDWEST, FUCK THE REST!!!!
