No Remorse
No Remorse was a WP British rock band formed in 1986. Original singer of the band left it soon after it’s foundation replaced by new singer Paul Burnley (born Tristram Bellany ) joining from his own band Public enemy.
In 1988 their debut album, This Time, was released and was said to be "the most evil record ever produced" according to The Jewish Chronicle. Later on that year they recorded See you in Valhalla after changing record label from Rebelles Europeens to Rock-O-Rama Records.
In 1989 they recorded the albums The new stormtrooper and Blood against gold. The same year, Paul Berley recorded the album There's Only One Public Enemy with his solo-project, Public Enemy. Next year another Public Enemy-album was released, titled Our Weapon Is Truth.
In 1990 their album Blood Against Gold was released, and for the first time ever No Remorse performed in the United States of America. First in Ottawa, Canada, and then as a contributing band at the Aryan Fest in Oklahoma. Their show was recorded by White Aryan Resistance and was later broadcasted via cable-TV throughout the entire United States.
In 1991 No Remorse held a concert in Brandenburg, Germany for their largest crowd ever. Later that year, Australian musician Nigel Brown (White Lightning, Celtic Warrior, Ravens Wing, Wolfseye) joined the band.
In 1992 No Remorse was scheduled to hold a concert in Spain with the Welsh band Violent Storm. When they arrived in Spain they received word of the death of all Violent Storm band members except the singer, and they dedicated the concert to their memory. In 1992 they accompanied the Swedish band Dirlewanger at the Brandenburg festival. In September they traveled to California with Dirlewanger where they performed together and recorded the album Desert Storm.
In 1993 No Remorse performed as the first non-Czech freedom rock band in Czechoslovakia. They also performed in Poland with the native band Konkwista 88. On the 24th of September Ian Stuart, lead singer of Skrewdriver, died in a car accident. In November they played in London and performed their tribute song, The Flame That Never Dies.
In April of 1994, Farewell Ian Stuart was recorded, and they signed for both Movement Records and Nordland Records. Under Nordland Records they recorded the album Under The Gods, and under Movement Records they released Skinhead Army. Later on that year they also performed at "A Tribute to Ian Stuart", accompanied by Bound for Glory, Centurion, RaHoWa and Berserkr. Following the concert, Joe Rowan, singer of the American band Nordic Thunder, was murdered at a gas station.
In 1995 Nordland Records released Under The Gods and Resistance Records released The Best of No Remorse. Movement Records encountered economic troubles and sold the rights to European Skinhead Army to Nordland. Paul Burnley takes part in a documentary entitled “World of skinheads” which was presenting the different sides and political aspects of the skinhead subculture.


In 1996, Paul Burnley accompanied by Swedish band "Swastika", recorded the album Kindred Spirit Carry the Flame. The Winning Hand, the re-named version of "European Skinhead Army" was released.
Aside from the above mentioned records No Remorse were also featured on several collective- and compilation albums.
On the 1st of November 1996, ten years after No Remorse was formed, Paul Burnley decided to leave the band. At the same time was started another band under the name of “No remorse” with Big Jacko on the vocals. They released “Barbecue in Rostok” album but the quality of the record was much inferior then the previous productions of the band. With some “on and off’s” the band continue to exist in next years, but many people believe that No remorse history ended with the withdraw of it’s front man.
After No Remorse, Burnley released a cd under the name "No Fear" (Still got the power) along with the melodic musicianship of Nigel Brown in 1999.
Paul Burnley wrote a book “Nazi Rock star” about the livework of Ian Stuart and Skrewdriver under the pseudonym Paul London, book was produced by Swedish Midgard records in 2002.
Burnley disappeared from the scene in next few years, but in present times he can be seen singing football songs hailing Chelsea F.C.
Plastic Surgery


Plastic Surgery was an Italian band in the 80's. They released one 7" in 1986 entitled "Rivolta". Their classic song "Rivolta" has been translated and covered by Spain's Division 250, Italy's Legittima Offesa, Portugal's LusitanOi!, and German band Faustrecht. Unfortunately they're not around anymore, but their music is still heard world-wide by true fans of Oi!

Blakout
Blackout was originally formed in the early 90's by Andrew "Stinko" Lewis along with 'Miffy', 'Acky' and Roger. Blackout always remained in Stinkos heart, even though he was involved in other projects, and in the late 90's, along with Brad and Freeman, Blackout emerged again and recorded tracks for a compilation album.

During these recordings, the idea of recording a full length CD was discussed but, due to the deterioration in Stinko's health, the project was shelved. There followed a period of serious illness which resulted in the untimely passing of Stinko.

Prior to his death, Brad and Freeman discussed at length with Stinko, the recording of the full length CD which was to incorporate music and lyrics Stinko had previously worked on.

Blackout, as we know them today, Brad, Freeman, Eggy, Steve and Martin, was formed in 2005. It was the aim of the band to perform their first live gig at the Stinko Memorial to be held in 2005 - which was a success!

During the following year, Blackut built up a loyal following and played a number of successfully gigs, but the demand was ever increasing for the full length CD. Which brings us to the present day and the release of "Spirit of the Warrior" dedicated to the eternal memory of our friend and inspiration - Andrew "Stinko" Lewis!
