Hard Skin at Acheron, 8/13/2012
Hard Skin

One part hilarious comedy act and one part damn good oi band, Hard Skin played Acheron to a sold-out house last night (8/13) as part of a short string of dates surrounding their tour around This is Hardcore. Hard Skin was joined by appearances from the fantastic metallic d-beat crew Murderess, NYC punks Sad Boys, Family Fun and Coffin Fit. Pictures from the show are below.

Hard Skin spent half of their set playing uber-catchy Oi and the other half making fun of the crowd, but it was all in the name of a good time. Fat Bob, who you may recognize from the Record Store Dude series (and who is also reportedly an A&R man at Rough Trade), quipped:

"We've come to take your shit American dollars. We've done that so you can all leave."

"Hello New York, the place so shit you had to name it twice."

"You are the country that gave us the Dropkick Murphys. You have that on your conscience."

After a short set (30+ minutes?), the band announced their last song to the grumble of the crowd. Fat Bob responded:

"Shut the fuck up. You pay peanuts, and you get monkeys."

Fat Bob, I disagree.

If you missed Murderess, make sure to get out to Acheron on August 20 where they'll team with Trenchgrinder and Death First to put a cap on their East Coast tour. Dates are below, along with a stream of one track, "For What?" Probably the biggest surprise of the evening and a fantastic live band.

Pictures from last night's Acheron show, that Murderess stream and all Murderess dates are listed below.

Murderess was one of the most surprising bands I've seen in ages. Their drummer completely kills. Can't wait to see em again

take that stupid shoe string head band off, kid from sad boys. this is not 80's finland and you are nowhere near as cool as riistetyt or kaaos or any of the other finn bands you probably claim to worship. move on to dubstep already.

fuck off.

Posted by rawnnie | August 14, 2012 12:22 PM

lovely culture you have going skinheads.

"But Jamaica...but England in the mid 60's"


yeah, yeah, we know, but it's not England in the mid-60's anymore and your scene truly sucks.

Just make sure and keep anonymously posting stupid shit about headbands and 1938 Berlin (wtf?!?) instead of darkening our doorsteps at our shows morons.

As if everyone who was at this show, not to mention everyone who played this doesn't have more going on than the sad, pathetic, scumbags who scurrilously lurk here.

Why does everyone talk so much shit on this website?

Posted by David Edelman | August 15, 2012 3:16 AM

I used to know someone who considered himself a skinhead/punk.

One night he got me as drunk as I've ever been, and tried to have sex with me.

True story.

white bitches playing guitars - what's not to like?

Wow, you people sure have a grasp on skinhead culture. What part of ANTI RACIST dont you get (End Apathy comment...shithead). Wanna know what has never been cool...anonymously posting ignorant and uniformed comments about WARDROBE and APPEARANCE you whiny little posers. Grow up, get a job and start a band for yourself you aimless, wannabee, VICE magazine writer, trust fund, hipster cunts. Just because you take your time to look and smell homeless doesn't make you an artist.

^ Big Hee Haw fan, I take it?

They're not actually skinheads...the band is a joke, and it's hilarious, and they're actually the best Oi! band ever.

Posted by Kaleb | August 31, 2012 3:57 AM

Whether your a musician or a comedian. Your both in the field of entrainment. Offensively I'm primarily going to see them play their music. If they make me laugh though that is a bonus.

I love the color of their hairs.
