Roger Miret is one of the largest figures in Hardcore, known for his commanding delivery and incendiary sociopolitical vocals, AF was able to make the entire scene sit up and take notice of NYHC scene.

Roger Miret is one of the largest figures in Hardcore, known for his commanding delivery and incendiary sociopolitical vocals, AF was able to make the entire scene sit up and take notice of NYHC scene. Well Roger is now back again this time with a new band that shows Roger again taking punk in a new direction, only instead of the hardcore his known for, this new band shows him playing with more of a street punk/Oi sound that reminded me a lot of early groups like the Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers, Cocksparrer and newer groups like Swinging Utters and Lars Frederiksen And The Bastards. The lyrics on this album range from drinking and partying, to how much work sucks, the life of a punk, and even a love song. The whole album is filled with catchy as hell guitar hooks, sing-along after one listen choruses, and attitude that only a veteran from the mean pits of New York could bring. The album closes with a great cover of Cocksparrer’s classic “England Belongs To Me”, only changed to “New York Belongs To Me” which is my favorite on this disc and worth the price of the cd alone.
