The Phakes - Kill All Smicks

  


  The Phakes (https://www.facebook.com/ThePhakes/) are new to me and are a DIY punk rock and roll band from Northern Ireland. I think they've only been around for a few months and I've not got much info to share (I can't even find a decent photo to post up above) but I can tell you they're raw, rough around the edges and very promising indeed. I've also been told that they're "a wee side project for a couple of the lads from Petty Youth." (https://pettyyouth.bandcamp.com/)

   They've been drip feeding a few songs onto Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvx4Gt9EKBHAdsyPS_HV3Vg) and it's the latest one of those I'm sharing today. They call it a "cheeky wee tribute 2 our fav typea scum." It's a hardcore rollercoaster of a track with Oi! Oi! Oi! chants and a rather tasty guitar solo. If you're wondering, a smick is "a young lower-class person typified by brash and loutish behaviour" and is Northern Irish slang for a chav. 

  This is Kill All Smicks...
