Here is a little bit more skinhead history for you. You'll love the soundtrack. Ohh the memories....

Some good interviews with skinheads of all races, all religions, colours and politics. A good place to start off if you want to learn some skinhead history.

Skinhead Reggae

While we could have written a whole book about skinhead reggae, we figured most people today online don't have time to read a big long huge blog about this fantastic style of music. So we posted this youtube clip for you, followed by 2 of our favorite boss tracks. Listen to them loud, and dance like no one is looking.

Here we have Toots and the Maytals doing their classic "54-46"... Live!

And to close this post, we have the legendary Desmond Dekker doing "Israelites"... live!

If anyone is interested in hearing any more skinhead reggae greats, feel free to drop us a line and we will e-mail you some killer cuts.

Demonstration For Equality. Good times

Just a quick little post to let people know how the Demonstration for Equality went.

It was a small turn out, but the few who did come were very cool. A mix of skinhead, punk and hip-hop cultures all against racism. New friends were made, ideas and info exchanged, and a few people learned some truths about the skinhead subculture.

Local boneheads had been making threats against the organizers and random people who planned to attend the Demonstration for Equality on both Facebook and Craigslist, and well as sending some people private messages. But only 3 showed up at the demonstration to protest it and cause problems. That is if you count yelling out "Oi!" from across the street and up a flight of stairs, showing a white power flag and then running away as fast as they could causing a problem. Typical boneheads... tiny brains and tinier spines.

Cheers to the people of Toronto who went to this event and stood up for equality!

Demonstration For Equality. Friday September 18th.

On Friday September the 18th, some local lads and ladies have decided to put on a little demonstration for equality. They are planing on meeting up at Union Station after 3pm, and at 4pm march out to Queens Park for the demonstration. After this they will head out to the Annex to go see "Shwatarded", a film about how the 3Tards concert againt breast cancer was shut down by the police.

"Missed the last Shwatarded show ever?

Live it again!!!!

Shwatarded - The Movie

Filmed during a charity fundraiser in Memorial Park in Oshawa, Ontario, watch the antics unfold as these punk rock undergods attempt the improbable... one woman, and four bands shattering a thousand stigmas in one action packed, fun filled, riotous rainy afternoon in the Shwa.

what happens is*almost* impossible to imagine....

Starring the now retired kings of Toronto Punk The 3Tards, and the hardest working band in Rock'n'Roll... The Groopies.

Shwatarded LIVE it….

Insurgence Records has teamed up with the Turn It Down Campaign and a host of bands, show promoters, crews, and individuals to bring you: Northern Aggression - Project Boneyard Volume II. The scene is stepping up again to challenge the spread of fascist propaganda (and bad music) like Project Schoolyard, a lacklustre sampler CD crapped out by a US-based bonehead label in an attempt to recruit youth to the white power movement.

Our subculture has always played to the tune of 'having a laugh and having a say'. Our message to the fascists: Get out of what was never yours to begin with. The kids on the street won't be fooled, and we will never abandon turf to self-serving freeloaders like you and the muck you spread.

The Northern Aggression sampler features the hardest selections from Insurgence bands - several of them unreleased - accompanied by tracks from other bands in our orbit. This CD is without question, the best collection we've ever compiled. The first of several runs of 10,000 are hitting the streets as you read this.

Insurgence supporters armed with bulk copies of the sampler aim to get this spread as far and wide as possible. We need all the help we can muster! The success of the project relies on the involvement of groups and individuals like you!

We're urging supporters to purchase bulk (for as low as 50 cents a unit) and specifically target areas being contested by the fascists. At times like this, it's about more than just the music. It's about defending our way of life and dutifully reminding the boneheads where their place is.... In the dustbin of history!

The sampler CD is FREE with all orders from Insurgence Records and available in bulk from Insurgence Records
