THE OFFENDERS - Generation Nowhere
File Under: Ska / Soulpunk / Beat
With their 5th record "Generation Nowhere" The Offenders (originally italian Ska Rockers based in Berlin for 5 years now) perfectly demonstrate their ability to combine best ingredients of Two Tone Ska , Punkrock, Beat, Soul and Powerpop into a unique mixture full of hooklines, Offenders classic way of playing offbeat mixed with 77-Punk, Mod Revival and british Pub Rock from the 70's, all suitable in a dancing mood as well as pogo pit... rough but melodic, fast but smart, no easy going slogans, no compromises, just life in the way they live and keep it going: on the streets, on the side of the subcultures they love, on the side of the real (and antiracist) football fans and all the traditional skinheads, punks, mods and rockers who still wanna have a say and won´t be silenced.
