number 5 : LAST RESORT: ´Way Of Life´

Skinhead Anthems.
I guess this is the album and the sound that sparked and inspired thousands of Skinhead bands around the globe. A true classic milestone in its own right!!
I have visited the original LAST RESORT shop on several occasions back in 1979 – 80. At some point we actually thought about naming my first band THE LAST RESORT…….. Ha! Lucky for us that we didn’t do that!!……….. It would only have made us look stupid…….. Well more stupid than we did anyway that is.
It´s a great album full of true skinhead classics and Roi is a legend to the scene!
