GEOFFREY OI!COTT – The Good, The Bad & The Googly
THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE GOOGLY
Street punk, Yorkshire style.
It was surely only a matter of time before someone would take the Oi! movement to its logical conclusion by bringing the supremely British subject matter of cricket into the equation. And that someone, ladies and gentlemen, is the band known as Geoffrey Oi!Cott, an outfit also fixated with darts, lager and their native Yorkshire. Alright, you’re not falling for this are you? Geoffrey Oi!Cott are of course a spoof band, but like Hard Skin, they have the sound nailed well and proper, showing genuine knowledge and affection for the genre. The album name and sleeve, outrageously aping the 4-Skins’ first album is also a nice touch.
