With the opening phrase:
"I was walking down the road with a dozen pals of mine
Looking for some aggro, just to pass the time
We met this stupid hippy and he tried to run away
But i punched him in the nose just to pass the time of day"
And its anthemic chorus, "Violence in Our Minds" stands out one of the bands best pieces of work.
BUT IT IS A COVER!
Originally recorded by Miles Wootton and released on the private press (Long Man Records) "Sunday Supplement World", "Skinheads" offers the meat of what would become "Violence in Our Minds". The Last Resort uses the verses from the Wootton song, and adds the anthemic chorus of "Violence in Our Minds." Wootton was a regular at Brighton and Hove's Standford Arms folk club in the 1960's and early 1970's.
Brighton and Hove, England's biggest seaside town is just a stones through away from Herne Bay, the birth place of The Last Resort. Perhaps it is the relative close proximity that led the lads in the Last Resort to listen to the mellow folk stylings of Miles Wootton, or perhaps it is a closer connection. I honestly couldn't tell you, that would be a question for the original line up of The Last Resort.
Anyway, here is a listen, enjoy: click to listen
