Snix - Coeur De Lion (1985)

This got to be one of the best Oi! bands that came out of France. Snix, a classic skinhead/Oi! band formed in October of 1982 inspired by Oi! bands such as the Cockney Rejects, Angelic Upstarts, 4 Skins and other classic British bands, but what really made an impact in the band was the compilation Oi! the Album. Snix made their debut in the French compilation 'CHAOS En France Vol. 1' released by 'Chaos Production' in 1983. The band had a good affiliation with many of the skinhead bands in France, bands such as 'Brutal Combat', 'Warrior Kids', 'Brainwash' and others, but definitely they had a better relation with 'Tolbiac's Toeds' from Paris. Which caused both bands to release a split by Snix own record label in 1984. Not until 1985 the band signed to '77KK Records' and became part of another compilation, and that same year released their full length LP 'Coeur De Lion', which is considered to be a gem in French Oi!. The LP open many doors for the band not just in France but all over Europe. As the years kept going by, the band released one more full length and was invited to participate in many compilations. The band came to an end in the late 80's and sealed their name as one of the most rememberable bands in French Oi!. This is a great fucking album, I hope you like it.
