Hailing From North London, Crown Court are Oi! music’s shaven headed torch bearers.

This is guitar slinging at its finest, blistering Chiswick rock and roll paired with a streetwise swagger unparalleled in the so called ‘scene’ today. Power met with the finesse of a Staffy barking at a chain link fence, their latest offering ‘Heavy Manners’ proves not to disappoint. Head nods and cues to the 80’s glory days of the genres past is just one of many tricks in the bag for a band dubbed ‘Trouble from London’ has to offer.

Headed by Trevor Taylor, the bands leader since inception with Ralph Orton (Concrete Bollox, Last Crusade) delivering masterful bass lines create an axis from which a fuel powered machine turns. Exceptional writing from Danny Swan (Half Charge) and Ronny Hamersma (The Reapers, Roughed Up) show the heaven and hell attitude that this band has made a statement time and time again. Jack Lewis (Code Blue) gives all a backbone and combined shows that pedigree from this background cannot be bought or imitated. Five different men, five different estates, music made for the tower blocks more than a long haired, tote bag touting art venue.

Today, the band have shared a video for new single ‘Striped Up, Sent Down’ that frontman Trevor Taylor says shows that Crown Court are “one of the very few groups that can’t afford the luxury of pretending, what you feel is what you get.”
