Foreign Legion / The Shame Split 7" EP REB1038
Welsh punk since 1984 and Tulsa Streetpunk team up for the International Streetpunk League. Two new songs each, co-released by Aggrobeat and Rebel Sound!
Foreign Legion from Wales was formed in 1984 out of the ashes of Dead On Arrival (est 1983). Despite various lineup changes, the band always kept it's own sound and style. Although coming from an Oi! background, the band always used Iots of punk rock influences which resulted in a style which will appeal to fans of bands like the Angelic Upstarts, Menace and of course the Clash.
During the band's thirty years of existence, they released four full-lengths including the album What Goes Around Comes Around, which was produced by Mick Jones from The Clash. Furthermore, the band released a split album with their friends from Major Accident, and have appeared on numerous split EP's and compilations.
So far the band has played in 15 different countries, and they are the only Welsh band to ever play at the legendary CBGB's in New York.
Despite this track record, slowing down was never an option for the boys. In recent years, the band has shared the stage with the Cockney Rejects, Guitar Gangsters, Control, The Warriors, GBH. The Ruts, Stiff Little Fingers and many more. Also the band has performed at festivals such as Back On The Streets, Punk & Disorderly (both 2013) and the Rebellion Festival.
The Shame are 3 old-school Tulsa punk veterans, coming together to play punk rock, drink beer and watch football... (futbol). And to sing about those things. If they can get some free beer in the bargain, then so be it!
They have played with bands like the Queers and Downtown Struts, and at the Midwest Live And Loud Fest with Noi!se, Bishops Green, The Templars, Fatskins, Concrete, Those Unknown and more.
They have previously released a full length CD and a 7" EP and will be following up this split EP with another 4-song EP of their own later this year.
