Angela Rippons Bum - Nice Arse Shame About The Face (2000)

Oi!'s most infamous and rarest band... 'Angela Rippon's Bum'. Formed in 1981 in the violent city of Tilbury, England, known for having the toughest skins in the 70's and 80's. Gangs such as the 'Tilbury Trojan Skins' supported the band and I'm pretty sure one of the members of ARB was in the gang. The played over 20 shows supporting bands like the Last Resort, The Business, and punk bands such as The Exploited. For not being a very well known band, Angela Rippon's had a massive skinhead following and were known for having violent shows. The band never released any full lengths or EPs, but they did participated in the infamous compilation 'Back On The Streets' released in 1982. The band split up in 1983 and never made a comeback. In 2000 'Guilty Records' collected all of their demos, live recordings and the songs that came out in the compilation and released a full length CD titled 'Nice Arse Shame About The Face', that same year an EP of the songs that were on the Back on the Streets compilations were released under the same name of the CD. Around 550 copies were pressed for the CD release of this legendary Oi! band from Tilbury. It's a MUST have!
