Oi Polloi - Saorsa picture disc (2 versions)

Oi Polloi – Saorsa
Picture disc (two versions)
UVLPEE61 – Urinal Vinyl Records

This is the sixth studio album of the long going scottish anarchist punk band Oi Polloi (ancient slang for “The Common People”) – 15 new songs recorded in 2014 with a retrospective of the many musically influences of previous Oi Polloi records. Here you find the anarcho charged sing-a-long Oi!Punk mixed with D-Beat-Crust and of course classic UK Anarcho Punk.

“Saorsa” means “Freedom” in scottish gaelic and “Freedom” or “Liberty” is the lyrical main subject of this album. Lyrics are mostly sung in English with little excursions into Gaelic, Spanish as well as Yiddish. With all the heavy political content, Oi Polloi never exclude humor in what they do and this is what makes them so sympathic in my eyes.

Responsible for the beautiful artwork was Sonia L. who already contributed to previous Oi Polloi records such as “Fuaim Catha”, and this album artwork has now been used to manufacture these amazing picture disc versions of the LP. Pressed in colour (350 copies) or black and white (a very limited 140 copies only!) Things of beauty they are, get one while you can!

In the 1970s, DIY print media met Punk and Anarchism, and the Anarcho-Punk Fanzine was born. The print quality may have been patchy, but the passion and commitment are undeniable. This hands-on workshop explores the politics and the music through zines and a punk soundtrack, courtesy of the Sparrows’ Nest Anarchist Studies Library.
