Hailing from Bridgend in South Wales, The Partisans were probably the most successful of all the second wave of Punk bands to emerge from Wales. Short sharp songs with biting lyrics were their trademark and through they initially debuted on the “Carry On Oi!” album they most certainly weren’t an Oi! band – more The Clash then Sham 69! ”Police Story” and “17 Years Of Hell” gave them Indie Chart Top 10 hits whilst the seminal “Blind Ambition” remains one of The Captain’s Top Twenty Punk tracks of all time.
One day that song will be covered by someone mega and The Partisans will get the acclaim they deserve.
