On the rare occasion in England that the sun rears it's head, Rancid are pretty much still after all these years my go to band. Especially if I'm driving anywhere -get the windows down, shades on, arm out the window, yes I'm rolling!!!*

Rancid - Hooligans

I picked this Hooligans 7" up a while ago now, I wasn't actively looking for it, it just caught my eye. I guess the reason for this is that I've looked at it a couple of times in the past and for some reason it seems to go for quite a lot of coin, not fortunes but certainly more than I want to pay for a Rancid 7", but this didn't have long to go and still didn't have a bid. In the end I scored it for a few pounds.

Hooligans is taken from Rancid's Life Won't Wait record of course, the tricky follow up to ...And Out Come The Wolves. Most people kinda pan or dismiss the record but I can hang with it no problems. I think it was always going to be the most natural move for a band so heavily influenced by The Clash. Pink with Purple splatter vinyl.

*Obviously I have to imagine I'm in some sort of cool pimped out low rider, rather than the two boring family cars I actually own.
