number 9 : INFA – RIOT: Still Out Of Order

A true classic streetpunk album packed with bootboy anthems!!

I have loved this album since it was released.
Great stuff!
I was lucky enough to catch INFA-RIOT live at the 100 CLUB (London) in 1983 and even though Lee constantly complained about “No one dances when we play London” it still stands out as one of the best shows that I attended in that era of time. Ha! I still got a cassette recording of that show!! What a pirate I am, doing “illegal” recordings……………….. Guess I owe you a pint or something, next time we meet Lee!!

INFA – RIOT have also got one of the most iconic logos in the scene.

  1. Hi John
    I stumbled on your page regarding Infa-Riot.
    Being a BIG fan of the band but being too young in the ‘day’ to see them live and also living in the wrong country, I have now since their 2011 reformation seen them live 6 times, number 7 being in Watford in September.
    I read that you have a recording of that 1983 gig from the 100 club (have seen the band there twice 2011&2014)
    Is there anyway to get a copy of that? I’m friendly with the band so please ask them if you have any doubts.
