Shutdown - Emits A Real Bronx Cheer

'You can take that mail, and that franking machine,
and all that other rubbish I have to go about with,
and you can stuff 'em right up your arse!'

Jimmy's famous tirade in Quadrophenia, is sampled quite nicely on the first track of this album. There's been a few bands called Shutdown. This lot came from Tewksbury, Glos, England, and were purveyors of fine Punk Rock, during the early nineties, in the Leatherface vein, with a few U.S. hardcore type influences, but with a definite English sound.
Underrated but influential.
Great record.
