Formed in 1980 in South London, The Last Resort are, together with Cockney Rejects, The 4 Skins and The Business considered one of the leading Oi! bands and an absolute legacy.
Oi! kingpin Gary Bushell wrote: “The Last Resort are a skinhead band from South London via Herne Bay, Kent. Based around the Last Resort shop in Petticoat Lane, East London and financed by the shopâ€™s owner Michael French. They too saw Oi! as being bigger than just for skins”.
â€œOi! is about uniting punks, skins and everyoneâ€. growler Millwall Roi told Sounds in their first interview ever.
“You’ll Never Take Us” is set for release on May 8th 2009 in Europe and on June 23rd in the USA. The Last Resort will perform at all relevant European festivals after which they’ll head out to the US again.

â€œYouâ€™ll Never Take Usâ€ is THE album the entire Oi! scene has been waiting for.
Itâ€™s all go for The Last Resort…Oi! Oi!
Founded in Brussels, Belgium in 1994, I Scream Records is celebrating itâ€™s 15th anniversary in 2009. In the label’s humble beginnings it was fueled by only a few thousand dollars and a passion for the Punk & Hardcore lifestyle and power of music. Over the years, I Scream Records has grown into one of the leading European Hardcore & Punk labels. I Scream Records has built an impressive catalogue with releases from bands like Madball, Ramallah, Stigma, Earth Crisis, North Side Kings, Agnostic Front, Discipline, Hoods, MOD, Blood For Blood, Jaya The Cat, Stigmata and Lionheart, to name a few. In early 2006 I Scream Records started its American operations and has since started to also make its mark in the States as one of the most diverse independents.
