“If you try to explain somebody that has nothing to do with any of the underground subcultures what skinhead is. You can tell them 20 billion times that they are not racist or fascist. They are still not going to get it, and still believe they are Nazis. This is exactly what happen to the ‘4 Skins’. In 1981 the British press and the channel BBC made a big deal of the release of the compilation LP ‘ Strength Thru Oi!‘. Accusing all Skinheads of being fascist and Nazis.
‘Tony Wilkinson’, a BBC reporter goes beyond the lines of what Oi! music is. Most of the blame falls on the 4 Skins, accused of being Nazis, and the disaster that occurred at the Asian community in Southall. Garry Hodges tells the reporters that they have nothing to do with politics, and that they don’t feel responsible for the catastrophe in the Asian community while playing with ‘The Business’ and other bands. Saying that it was a set up. Well… like I said in the beginning of the paragraph, doesn’t matter how many times you tell them, they are still not going to get it. ” – Skunx Come Back!
