If ever there were two ‘faces’ on the scene who made the transition from being fans at gigs to be in a band that developed their own fan base then vocalist Watford Jon and guitarist Daryl Smith are they. Out and about at every Ska Revival, Street Rock and Oi! gig of the late 80’s and early 90’s they took their influences – Rose Tattoo, Sham, The Business, Heavy Metal Kids, etc.. – and mixed it with their “up yours” attitude and hey presto, Argy Bargy were born.
Fast but always melodic, humorous but always with something to say, they might not be the most prolific band but when they have got something to shout about you can bet it’s worth listening to. Tasty tattoos and a ton of beer, fist pumping choruses and tunes that ensure each song is different rather then identikit – is it Oi?, is it Street Punk? No matter the label, it’s unmistakably Argy Bargy.
This 2002 release was Argy Bargy’s second full length studio album.
Argy Bargy feature guitarist Daryl Smith from Cock Sparrer plus on vocals the Oi! face about town that is Watford Jon.
This album features 14 terrace style chants and fast tuneful Street Punk titles that are the trademark of the band.
A major attraction on the European Punk gig circuit.
Third full length studio album from Argy Bargy, probably the most successful and respected UK Street Punk Oi! band of recent years.
Includes the full length version of single ‘No Regrets’ plus a re-work of Oi! album favourite ‘My Life’.
Featuring Cock Sparrer guitarist Daryl Smith, Argy Bargy have supported bands as diverse as Rose Tattoo and Rancid and are regular crowd pullers at festivals such as “Rebellion” and “Punk N Disorderly”.
