 Hiljaiset Levyt: PUNKNET 77 - Angelic Upstarts
Angelic Upstarts scored the first of their seven U.K. singles chart hits with I'm an Upstart (number 31) and the first of four charting LPs with Teenage Warning (produced by Sham 69s Jimmy Pursey) in 1979.
Although Upstarts were formed so early as 1977 and did play melodic but angry punk - like Sham 69s and UK Subs - they were for a reason or another involved in Oi movement - and did get part of the skinhead troubles (=violence in gigs) in early 1980s.
Angelic Upstarts have broke up several times but always Mensi has formed a new Angelic Upstarts - he is the only original member of the band and there have been dozens of musicians in the band.

 TrouserPress.com :: Angelic Upstarts
With the commanding Mensi (Tommy Mensforth) as singer and spokesperson, the Angelic Upstarts came down from Newcastle in 1978 — after self-releasing a powerful and controversial protest single, "The Murder of Liddle Towers" — and found a patron in Sham 69's Jimmy Pursey, who produced their first album.
is the Upstarts' great leap forward, a blend of angry socio-political lyrics with a controlled and melodic rock attack (broken on the title track with a reggae digression and on the a cappella folk ballad, "Geordies Wife") that is punky only in Mensi's unpolished bellow and the band's gang-shouted backing vocals.
As modern electric folksingers, the Upstarts' unprepossessing but palatable musical approach may be excused in consideration of the lyrics' good intentions: simplicity is in direct proportion to the sincerity.

 Oi! - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
bands included Cock Sparrer, the Cockney Rejects, Angelic Upstarts, and Sham 69, although some of them were around for years before the word Oi!
However, none of the original streetpunk bands promoted racism, and some, such as the Angelic Upstarts, were associated with the left wing and anti-racist campaigns.
The band's early material is often considered Oi!, but by the mid-1980s Skrewdriver was leading a neo-Nazi rock scene, distancing itself from Oi!

But by this point, the Upstarts had embraced a larger sonic palette.

If you want a great compilation of the Angelic Upstarts, buy this along with "Who Killed Liddle" on Recall.
So here we have the essential Murder of Liddle Towers followed by the hooky chants from the first couple of Zonophone albums, wrapped up with killers like Solidarity, Never Say Die, and Woman in Disguise when Paul Thompson, at the time a recent outcast from Roxy Music, brought his demonic thumping to the Upstarts' output.
Lead singer Mensi had great Left instincts, and even if his anthemic England, included here, did become a National Front anthem, the Upstarts were always on the side of good.
