Iron Cross - Skinhead Glory 7"

Another classic and important hardcore record. Iron Cross formed in the early 80's and were a part of the D.C. Dischord family, although they never fit that mold. They were one of, if not the first American Oi! band. They also championed 'Skinhead Pride', but not Nazi politics or racism. Their music is slower and heavier than hardcore of the time, but no less aggressive. After many lineup changes and 2 E.P.'s they called it quits in 1985. Lead singer Sab Grey has reformed a new Iron Cross. They've toured and also released a split with a Sab-fronted rockabilly band Sab Grey & The Royal Americans.
