Blitz - All Out Attack (1981)

Hello hello, I'm back and I bring you another fabulous gem from the 80's. If you don't know who 'Blitz' is, buddy, you best download this EP right now. Blitz, formed in 1980 from New Mills, Derbyshire, England. Blitz became one of the best Oi! bands from the early 80's, as well as being one of the first street punk bands. The band consisted of two punks and two skins, and their intentions were to bring unity between both tribes. 'All Out Attack' was released by 'No Future Records' in 1981, 1000 copies were pressed and quickly sold out every copy. Even still today it's pretty hard getting a copy of the original EP. The following year 'No Future' released what it would be Blitz masterpiece 'Voice Of A Generation' LP, which did not included tracks from 'All Out Attack'. About that same year the band started having numerous changes in their line up. In 1983 the band released their second full-length album 'Second Empire Justice' LP once again by No Future. Their fans were dissapointed and Blitz has changed their style, they were no longer a Punk band. The band came to an end in the early 90's due to musica differences among band memebers. In 2007 guitarrist/songwritter Alan "Nidge" Miller recruited new members and performed gigs under the same name. That same year Blitz did a tour in the U.S. and it led to a catastrophe. Miller was struck by a car and died on the impact while trying to walk in the freeway after a show in Austin, Texas (R.I.P.). Since then the band called it a quit. Blitz albums still sells that if they just came out, the band has sold over thousands of records all over the globe and still one of most covered band by many. I hope you love this EP as much as I do.
