Angelic Upstarts

Here is another band that i loved since an early age.
Punk/oi band “Angelic Upstarts” were formed in 1977.From South Sheilds in Newcastle,the upstarts were stout defenders of the working class struggle and the anti-fascist action against racism and facism.
Original members were Mensi (Thomas Mensforth)on vocals,Mond (Ray Cowie) on Guitar,Decca Wade on drums and steve Forstien on Bass.
Mensi went his own way in 2006,after almost 30 years,and Chris wright of Crashed out took over on vocals.
