In March 2000, after a few changes in their line-up and a few years of playing small bar shows in and around Luxembourg, The Skinflicks moved on to proper things with recording their now legendary demo STEEL-TOE ANTHEMS. It was a beer-fueled period in the lads' lives, so the memories are kind of blurry. The recordings were done at a long since defunct studio in Schifflange, southern Luxembourg. The studio engineer whose name escapes those involved, was a last minute replacement and the poor guy didn't really know how to work the desk alone - it was his first day at that particular studio, as far as can be remembered. It was a Sunday and the owner of the studio probably didn't care whether this bunch of short-cropped teens would get anything done or not. To make things worse, Jerome came down with a feverish cold the day before and would have prefered to stay in bed, as his throat was still quite a mess when he showed up at the studio.
 
However, the results were fine, considering the circumstances, and in fact the band managed to catch their raw and in-yer-face live sound quite well. The EQ is all over the place, with rides sounding like crash cymbals, the guitar and bass fused on one single track to sound like a pile of mud and the backings have way too much shimmery reverb... and the fact that the singer only had half a voice didn't really help either. But it's as raw and honest as you will ever hear The Skinflicks. In fact, it's probably their best recording, as far as attitude goes.
 
This is a piece of Oi! history, with some of these songs being covered by Oi-bands from all over the globe to this day. The band only handmade about 300 CDR copies at the time. This is the first time these tracks have been officially released in their entirety.
 
Trisol is proud to present these legendary recordings in a strictly limited edition of blue 10" vinyl. The sleeve features a collage of many unreleased period live photographs.
