Biography

Blitz was a street punk/Oi! band from New Mills, Derbyshire, England. They had success in the United Kingdom indie charts in the early 1980s. With both punk and skinhead members, they were enthusiastically championed by Sounds magazine writer Garry Bushell, though guitarist Nidge would later go on to denounce Bushell. Although considered an influential Oi! band, the band members simply described themselves as a punk band. They signed to the record label No Future in 1981, and their first release was the 7" EP All Out Attack.

Several years after the original Blitz lineup split, guitarist Alan "Nidge" Miller recruited new members and performed concerts under the Blitz moniker. On February 10, 2007, Miller was struck by a car and died on impact after walking onto a freeway after a show in Austin, Texas.
