Show Notes

Mr. Roddy Moreno is the lead vocalist for the seminal punk rock band The Oppressed. Formed in 1981 in Cardiff City, Wales; The Oppressed are a staunch anti-fascist/anti-racist band who took a stand against neo-Nazis within the Oi! music scene and elsewhere in the 1980s. Roddy Moreno is also a pioneer of the Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice movement (S.H.A.R.P.) in the United Kingdom. This interview will give you a detailed audio experience into Roddy's life growing up in Cardiff, his inspiration for becoming a musician, what life was like in the Welsh Punk Rock scene as well as some very interesting testimonies about his life as a Skinhead hooligan. The musical contributions made by Roddy Moreno and his band The Oppressed have made an everlasting impression on the politics of Punk Rock music that, to this day, remain a symbol of unity and resistance against Racial Prejudice.

You can find The Oppressed's music on all musical platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube, and anywhere else music is found! Be sure to catch them at a venue near you!
