While all the other Korean skinhead bands have either broken up (Jiraltan99, Dirty Small Town) or gone metal (Samchung, Captain Bootbois), we still have Attacking Forces.
AF has lived through numerous lineup changes, two-year gaps when first their guitarist and later their singer went through the military, and the changes in the Korean music scene. Over the years their sound has changed very little, other than a general tightening up and improving, and today their sound is still simple fun oi music intended for hollering along with and drinking to. They’re yet another example of a great band out of Cheongju, the small university town with the oldest and best punk scene in Korea outside of Seoul, and they’ll be playing shows there on the 16th and June 6 as well.
This Saturday they team up with fellow Korean punk veterans Spiky Brats for the latest Midnight Boot Party at Club Spot, as well as guests Skasucks and Revenge Blossom.
