The Chisel – “Fuck ‘Em”

The Chisel are the kind of band that makes it easier to get up in the morning. The members of the London group are mostly veterans of the resurgent UK hardcore scene. Members have spent time in bands like Violent Reaction and Arms Race, and guitarist Charlie Manning Walker is also known as Chubby Charles, leader of Chubby And The Gang. There’s definitely some old-school hardcore in the Chisel’s sound, but they’re even more immersed in classic British oi and street-punk sounds. They’re very, very good at making that real Begbie music, anthems for smashing beer glasses over people’s heads.
