No Tag "Oi Oi Oi" LP


Finally seeing the light of day again for the first time in 33 years, No Tag's "Oi Oi Oi" 12" EP gets its first official reissue. The band hailed from Auckland, New Zealand and consisted of guitarist Andrew Boak, singer Paul Van Wetering, drummer Carl Van Wetering and bassist Mark Sullivan. Originally released in 1982 on the legendary Propellor Records, which was ground zero of the Kiwi punk scene, "Oi Oi Oi" reached #15 on the New Zealand singles chart when it was released. No small feat, since punk in New Zealand hadn't quite reached the higher echelons of mainstream acceptance of that in the UK and US. They followed this release with a live album titled "Can We Get Away With It?" and supported the Dead Kennedys during their New Zealand tour. Sadly, as is the case with many bands of this era, their live shows often attracted a violent element, leading to the band calling it quits in 1986. Radio Raheem is proud to re-release this one back into the wild, taken from the original reels and complete with printed lyrics which were missing from the original.
