The 2012 video for Booze & Glory's "London Skinhead Crew" is approaching 12 million views at the time of this writing. I know I have clicked on it at least a half dozen times since it's release and I am sure many of you have as well.
You may not be a skinhead, may not know what a "Crombie coat" is or what "Monkey Boots" are and you may not know the significance of the song "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles". What is undeniable is how catchy the punk rock song is and the coolness of the record.
I have been collecting records for a very long time. I've seen a lot of shapes, sizes and colors... But this 12" with the words "London Skinhead Crew" actually cut out of the vinyl and then with the record playing from the inside out... is just the best. This is mandatory for any record collector.
The A-side is a new, ska version of the song. The B-side is the original. The ska version has them teamed up with Vespa & The Londonians and it is spot on with the vintage ska style. Love the musicianship and the arrangement. I can see I am going to have to drop the needle on some Trojan and Studio One records. Perfect as summer is upon us.
This record is an instant classic.
