Gassenhauer - N.D.G. 7"

Okay despite the name sounding a bit German this band is actually from Notre Dame de Grace, which is in the West end Of Montreal, Quebec.  According to what I have found on line and what the back of this seven inch says this was one of the first skinhead bands in Canada, I don't know if that is true or not, maybe someone can let me know.

What we have here is two songs "Drunken Skinhead," which is a take off of the song "Drunken Sailor," and a live recording of "N.D.G.," which is about their hometown. "N.D.G." is a slower ballad type of a song, reminds me of what The Dropkick Murphy's would do many years later.

This was recorded in 1985, and was released in 1998 on the Blind Beggar label.

A very good listen.
