Negro Terror “Voice of Memphis” (Oi/Punk) [Music/Track]

Year: 2019
Genre: Oi/Punk
From: The 7″ Voice of Memphis

It’s a time when our own people
Can’t walk the streets alone (whoa-oh)
They lived in this city
Is this what they get back?
Risked their lives in Memphis;
Now Memphis belongs to the troglodytes!
‘Bout time that the city just
Took their city flag!

Negro Terror, the brainchild of bassist and reggae frontman Omar Higgins, is an all American, all oi!/Punk/Hardcore group that just happens to be all black. But the music that’s played has no color, just the crimson red of pure aggression.

I discovered this by accident, or a should I say a random YouTube recommendation one morning, and I can’t stop listening to it. The pure rage, the lyrics, the energy and perfect length. Just amazing!

The lyrics, talking about ignorant cavemen now running Memphis, but it’s now time to take it back.

Unfortunately the 7″ is already really expensive, about $100, unless you live in the US then you can get it for about $50.

“Voice of Memphis”

Oi, oi, oi!

Walking ‘round the street
Hand-in-hand with fear (whoa-oh)
No-one can tell
What is ‘round the bend
Don’t side with the other side
’Cause if you do we’ll find you (whoa-oh)
Want to know exactly
If you classify as friends

This is the voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
And you better believe it!
The voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
Come on and fly the flag now!

It’s a time when our own people
Can’t walk the streets alone (whoa-oh)
They lived in this city
Is this what they get back?
Risked their lives in Memphis;
Now Memphis belongs to the troglodytes!
‘Bout time that the city just
Took their city flag!

This is the voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
And you better believe it!
The voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
Come on and fly the flag now!

Now we’ll have a go
For the TV and the papers
And all the media stupids
That like to keep us quiet!
Trying to bleed my city
Like the leeches of the nation!
We won’t give up quickly
We’re going to stand and fight!

This is the voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
And you better believe it!
The voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
Come on and fly the flag now!

The voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
And you better believe it!
The voice (the voice)
The voice (the voice)
Of Memphis!
Come on, Memphis awake now!
Uuugh!
