Ottawa-based Oi!/street-punk band The Scally Cap Brats had previously flown below my radar, and I’m sad it’s taken me this long to learn of them.
The band embraces that true old-school, traditional sound, singing classic Oi! tunes. Gang vocals, ripping guitar solos, bridges and buildups…the Brats have taken that quintessential skinhead sound, added a little folk tinge, and made it their own.
You can get to know the band a little more by listening to their new EP “Don’t Look Back”, which was just released last week.
While you’re at it, check out a music video the band published for their song, “You Never Know”, off the new EP.
