5.0 out of 5 stars The Original US Skinhead Band, 2 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Live for Now (Audio CD)
Iron Cross came out of Washington D.C. hardcore scene in the early 80's and were friends with bands like Minor Threat and SOA. Now, instead of playing 1000 mph like everyone else, they went for a more British Punkrock sound. Originally they were a punks, the skinhead image came later. It's worth mentioning here that Iron Cross were the first skinhead band and despite the name they were NOT Nazis or Racsists or anything like that.
The name was just a name nothing more, and since Skins weren't originally Nazis in the first place being a skinhead doesn't prove they had any right wing leanings.
This cd compiles all the released recordings from the Flex Your Head comp, Skinhead Glory EP and the Hated and Proud EP. It also has tracks recorded in the above sessions that were never released. So it is a complete package. The music is great, really hard, shambolic but also melodic with something to say. The liner notes tell the Iron Cross story through ex band members.
I would recommend this as an important part of American punk history and should be in any punk's, skin's, or anyone who likes good rock music's collection.
