Various Cheap Shots And Low Blows- TKO Singles and EPs Collection Vol. 1

TKO has been carving out a name for itself in the past couple of years as the premiere street/oi label, and this collection is a fine example of that. This comprises the first nine singles released in 1997-98. There's 28 songs in all, clocking in at almost 70 minutes. Groups include the Forgotten, Dropkick Murphys, Templars, Lower Class Brats, One Man Army, the Bodies and more. This has the feel of one of the old Punk and Disorderly comps, as most of the bands have mastered the old school punk/oi sound. Good stuff. (TKO)
