UK punk rock-band Blaggers ITA produced an immediate effect in 1993 having a natural, if untutored, debut recording that was prohibited in Germany due to the burning up swastika depicted within the cover. Two following singles entered the united kingdom Top 50 along with a tour using the Manic Road Preachers and Credit To THE COUNTRY saw them consider their confrontational politics on the highway. Then arrived an after-concert battle with a journalist. Though vehemently anti-fascist, spokesperson Matty ‘Blag’ (b. Matthew Roberts, 1964, Oswestry, Shropshire, Britain, d. 22 Feb 2000, London, Britain; vocals) had candidly revealed that in his previous, an ill-informed and impoverished working-class history, he previously briefly kept Nazi sympathies. These were dropped from your Reading Festival expenses, while the anticipated THE SURFACE OF THE Pops looks and magazine protection dry out. Matty was discovered not liable of assault in a hearing by Leeds magistrates on 4 Apr 1995, the situation dismissed on legal technicalities. He was after that expelled in the band in the summertime. Blaggers ITA put into two factions, dropped their agreement with Parlophone Information and interest within their fortunes vanished. Matty Blag passed away of a medication overdose in Feb 2000.
