Blitz Biography (Wikipedia)

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. Inspired by the growing Oi! scene, they had sent him their demo tape early in 1981. Bushell was impressed enough to put two of their tracks on that year's Carry On Oi compilation, Nation On Fire and Youth. He helped them secure a deal with the record label No Future. When the band slept at his family home on the Ferrier estate in Kidbrooke, a rough south east London council estate, he recalls them being "freaked out by being in a real concrete jungle" (Bushell On The Rampage). guitarist Alan "Nidge" Miller would later go on to denounce Bushell, but they reconciled before his death. The band signed to No Future in 1981, and their first release was the 7" EP All Out Attack. Their debut album Voice of a Generation received a five star review from Bushell in Sounds.
