Surely one of the great 80s albums that, now, seem to have captured the real spirit of the time; yuppies, miners on strike, Thatcherism. Like another reviewer mentioned, the music is still relevant today.
At the time no self-respecting student hadn't studied this album. Along with The The's 'Infected' it was standard issue. But don't let that put you off. No, this was a time when students were students.
Why there wasn't a follow-up to this is a mystery. But at least we have this gem now on CD. Buy.

Although the digital remastering loses some of the raw energy on some of the tracks, it still remains an absolutel fantastic album and I am always uplifted when I hear it.
An absolutely fantastic album.

I bought the album as vinyl when the band was the darling of the SWP. I had a bizarre conversation with Chris over the phone when he was looking for posters of South Africa to use at a concert. I was grumpy and I failed to realise in the modest, unassuming guy who was trying to ask for a favour that here was the hero of the vinyl I enjoyed so much. My apologies Chris and hopefully this will make up for it.

Where to start. Making political music isn't easy and making it in the environment the Redskins found themselves in was less than easy but they did it. Yes, there are Marxist lessons in the lyrics but there are also incredibly catchy songs and rhythms and so much energy. The Redskins could go from dance songs to the sort of thing you could listen to quietly by yourself, and they did it effortlessly.

I gave away all my vinyl a while back and replaced what I wanted to replace with CDs. Then two weeks ago for some reason I found myself singing Kick over the statues and I decided to replace the album. It's just as moving and catchy and powerful as it was back then. So Chris, if by chance you come out of hiding here's my thank you for putting to song arguments and ideals that weren't easy to pass on in conversation let alone in a few minutes of song. A lot of us miss you - we miss the songs, the music and the generosity. You produced something that challenge the ideas of that time and what is more impressive is that the music is still as relevant today as it was then. So, thanks. I'd give an arm and a leg to have that phone conversation again :-)

The disappearance of one of the greatest frontmen I have ever seen live just adds to the aura surrounding this important record. Recorded in 1984/85, it is a powerful document from the fight against the right wing forces that dominated the British political landscape at that time. It is a record fashioned from the heart of the 'Miners Strike'. Yet, today, 'Neither Washington Nor Moscow' seems more relevant than it ever has done - Dean's lyrics gaining new significance in the current political climate.
For many people the Redskins were inspirational. They came and went in the kind of way that you wish the Strokes would. One album, thank you and goodnight. Leaving no trails of off-shoot projects and the like. Just...nothing.
That is what now make this record seem like the aural equivalent of Das Kapital. A collection of twelve songs set in stone but with tunes, tunes, tunes. And a beat. The kind of record you don't hear anymore. Think the Jam, the Clash, the Specials, Dexy's, the Fall and the Supremes all rolled into one. No traces of Velvet Underground or Television here. No Prog-like attempts. They want you to be focused on the task ahead with all traces of apathy removed and it's there where their anger is channelled. If that doesn't make them vital then nothing does. As they themselves put it - "The Power Is Yours". I could write about every track on the album but just trust me, it's all good.
After they disbanded rumour had it that they had recorded a follow-up(Dean told me this himself in the dressing-room at the Leadmill, Sheffield) but whether this is true remains a mystery to this day. It was whispered that Dean had become a journalist in Paris and since then little has been seen or heard. If anyone who knows where he is happens to be reading this- tell Mr.

Love them or loath them this was on of the most compelling albums of the 80's.Still,15 years after it first fought its way out past all the pomp of it's time it's still as clean and angry as the day it was first let out.If you have or had any kind of social conscience this is the one for you,that's if you didn't get it then.

I bought this on the strength of the minor hit Keep on Keepin' on. Not too dissimilar to the brass sound of Dexy's Searching For The Young Soul Rebels, this album demands to be heard. The Power is Yours is a slow introduction before Kick Over the Statues bursts in like an angry striking miner. Apart from the over-long Go Get Organised the rest of the album fairly cracks along. The tempo changes from the furious - It can Be Done to the soulful - Take No Heroes. The lyrics are a cross between a Russian history lesson and a Red wing political rally delivered in non-compromising way very reminiscent of young Kevin Rowland - "Keep on Keepin on 'til the fight is won"

I recenly got a copy of the cd version of the skins album as my old vynil copy has seen better days.Although the cd version does not contain the untitled track on side two (if anyone can shed any light etc)but it does contain bonus tracks so it's still well worth it. On hearing it again after several years absence a have mixed feeling's. I met the band several time's as a fan and also had the pleasure of supporting them on several occasion's in the mid 80s in scotland.The thing that strike's me whenever anyone remind's of the band is the turmoil, political uphevel ,strike's,Thach etc so i won't bore you with the history lesson instead i'll try give you a different angle on the group a loved then. On a personnel level i found the group some of the most intelligent generous open and likeable people i've had the pleasure to meet. They were the genuine article they flew in the face of fastion, out of step with most things and never afraid to put there ass on the line (quite literally at times)in short they had the bottle. Fastfoward to 2002 i have a copy of the album in my player. The years have been kind to the sound perhaps a bit over blown at times.I remember giving cris the singer a hard time about the production at the time and like a true gent he took on board every druken word a spat at him bearing in mind at most post gig meet and greet's they had the delight of having the NF waiting for them as leave the hall.... Chris if by miricle you read this ....i'm sorry you were right. Take no heroes..... Only inspiration.
