Niche market time. Cricket and darts Themed Oi! Anyone? Well apparently yes is the answer as this lot are on their third LP. First off the Artwork is courtesy of ROLLING STONES Paint it Black and it's pretty funny. Onto the music. Well Oi! Is hardly known for its originality and Oi!Cott aren't letting the side down there. Its pretty much bog standard plod for the most part. Some of the songs are more up tempo with some good guitar leads but the vocals soon bring it back down to earth and the drummer seems to have only two speeds, fast or plod. Song two `We Get the Runs` had me worried as I kept thinking of MACC LADS and `Seams to Me` has those 14 year old juvenile mucky lyrics approach and once again had me cringing thinking of the lads from MACC In fact I pretty much gave up at that point. The last few songs are about darts. None of which match up to HARDSKIN`S `Jockey on the Oche` by a country mile.
