Formed in 1980 in South London, The Last Resort are, together with Cockney Rejects, The 4 Skins and The Business considered one of the leading Oi! bands and an absolute legacy.
Oi! kingpin Gary Bushell wrote: “The Last Resort are a skinhead band from South London via Herne Bay, Kent. Based around the Last Resort shop in Petticoat Lane, East London and financed by the shop’s owner Michael French. They too saw Oi! as being bigger than just for skins”.
“Oi! is about uniting punks, skins and everyone”. growler Millwall Roi told Sounds in their first interview ever.
“You’ll Never Take Us” is set for release on May 8th 2009 in Europe and on June 23rd in the USA. The Last Resort will perform at all relevant European festivals after which they’ll head out to the US again.
