The Best of Infa Riot

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Thompson
Infa Riot were one of the crusaders of Oi!, a band that emerged within the same spiky handful as the Anti Nowhere League and the 4-Skins, and who were championed through the early '80s by much the same audience.

Infa Riot were one of the crusaders of Oi!, a band that emerged within the same spiky handful as the Anti Nowhere League and the 4-Skins, and who were championed through the early '80s by much the same audience. Unlike many of their peers, however, the band was not long for this world -- two albums and four years after forming, they split, leaving behind nothing more than a heap of battered vinyl -- and idiot grins on the faces of their fans whenever the band's name was mentioned.

All the group's original 45s are here together with a couple of B-sides; both albums are cherry-picked for their most unassailable highlights, and from the moment the super-anthemic "Riot Riot" kicks in straight on through to the closing celebration of "Punch the Air with Glory" oh, and the fans really did!, the decades roll back with such fiery abandon that 1982 -- the year of Infa Riot's absolute peak -- really doesn't seem that long ago after all.
