    IMPACT Biography

    One of the first skinhead bands in Europe with strong anti-fascist message coming from Cardiff, Wales, UK. Start in 1981, splitt in 1984. Then reformed in 1994.

    "THE OPPRESSED Oi! STORY. 1981 / 202?.
    Oi! STORY - THE 80s.
    March 1981, Russel (DUCKY) Payne is released from Borstal and I get released from Prison. At the time we didn't know each other and it's just coincidence that we were both banged up for violence. Anyway, Ducky (GUITAR), his brother Ronnie (BASS) and Gary Tier (DRUMS), all Cardiff Skins, along with Martin Brennan (VOCALS) a valley Skin, form an Oi! band. After tossing a few names around, including FORCED OPPRESSION, they decide that THE OPPRESSED fits the bill. So it was that with not much ability and a ton of enthusiasm the boys set out to have a ball. While all this was going on I was forming INSANITY SQUAD with me on guitar, my brother Dom on bass, his mate Vince King on vocals, and a nutter called Ed Flemming on drums. Me and Vince was Skins and Dom and Ed was Punks so that made us Cardiffs first Skunk band. We played a few local gigs, recorded nothing and fell apart after trying play a gig so pissed we couldn't see straight. Back at Duckys house Ronnie had left the band. No big story, he just wasn't into it. Looking for a new bass player they ask my mate if he wanted to join but he couldn't play a triangle so he suggested me. I'd seen their first gig and I remember telling my missus how "I should be in that band". So Ducky, Gary and Brennan eventually turn up on my doorstep and make me an offer I couldn't refuse. I suggested Dom on Bass with me as second Guitarist and the boys were all happy. This was around Xmas 1981 and this line up lasted about a year. Brennan and Gary had decided to leave so I took over vocals and we found the Kid, Lee Jenkins, to take care of drumming. Lee was from Risca, about 20 miles out of Cardiff, a 16 year old Skin who told me "I'm fucking brilliant" when I asked him if he was any good, and "course I have, that's why I'm fucking brilliant" to "got a kit?" This line up lasted about 2 years and recorded nearly everything issued in the eighties. Almost all our gigs ended in a ruck (boys will be boys) and eventually we just got pissed off with whole thing. We did get together in the studio with Juan Garcia, a punk from near Cardiff on drums. We recorded 3 cover versions but played no gigs. So that was it for the eighties. Less than 4 years but it seemed like a lifetime......
    Oi! STORY - THE 90s.
    After the split in '84, I spent the next 6 years setting up and running my Oi! Records and Ska Records labels, helped to establish S.H.A.R.P and in 1987/8 I put together The Rude Boys with my brothers Dom and Adrian (R.I.P), and 3 sax players. By the end of the eighties the Rude Boys had fallen apart and the labels were struggling. There was a baby (THE Oi! BOY) on the way so I give up on music and got a job. I put The Oppressed back together in 1994 after some Fascist shite had been putting up C'18 (Ni**ers Out) stickers in my area. I tore off the stickers and thought "fuck this" and set out to use the bands profile to Fight Fascism again. For the next 2 years me, Dom and Adrian recorded some Anti-Fascist records including the benefit E-P "FUCK FASCISM". We played a few local "Shows for the Boys" including our farewell gig with the Warriors which was filmed for the THEY THINK IT'S ALL OVER - IT IS NOW video. Although this was our farewell gig we received an offer we couldn't refuse, to play the Camden Irish Center for ANTI-FASCIST ACTION (Oct' 5th 1996).The Business had a gig wrecked by C'18 because they wouldn't have C'18 provide security. The Fascists then announced that no Oi! bands could play London without C'18 security. The lads from A-F-A said "FUCK THAT" and arranged a concert for us. Floyd was now in the band on guitar and this was his one and only gig with us. The Stage Bottles had come from Germany to support us. It was a top night. Just like back in '81, no trouble at all. It was one of our best gigs and, not surprisingly, C'18 became invisible men. 1998 saw us back together with a new drummer (YAN) to do some more recording and we've done nothing since....
    Now it's 2004 and we're back in rehearsals. The latest line up is still me, Dom and Floyd, with Tony Kizmus (ex-Societys Rejects) on drums.. If it all goes well we'll be back for the odd festival later in the year.
    Oi! STORY - THE 00s
    Since writing this we spent 2005 playing all over Europe and did one night in Canada for the Insurgence Records boys which was filmed for the Brotherhood DVD with The Prowlers. I hit 50 in 2006 and decided it was a good time to close the book on the band.
    Now it's 2010 and we're back for another load of gigs....
    So now it’s 2016 and after playing all around the world it’s time to call it a day. Problems with my health and hitting 60 contributed to the decision but I look back with pride....
    It’s now 2020 and at the grand old age of 63 I’ve put the band back together. This time Ducky’s back on guitar. After a 36 year break it’s great to have him back in the band he started 39 years ago. The 2 new boys are Che on drums and Ross on bass. Both boys are from Bridgend and also play in South Wales Punk band The Evil Turkeys. They’re great lads with a wicked sense of humour and fitted right in.
    Cheers one and all.
    It’s been emotional.

    There are many artists called Impact:

    1) Impact was an American soul quartet originating from Philadelphia (formed 1969 - disbanded 1977). Members of the group later known as Impact burst onto the recording scene with the name the Young Tempts on the Isley Brothers' T- Neck label. The first single, "I've Been Good to You" b/w "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby," ripped the Temptations' earlier versions, and both tracks appeared on the Gettin' Ready album with Eddie Kendricks on lead. Impact's falsetto Otis Robert Harris Jr. sounded like a fuller Kendricks, but he lacked Kendricks' edge. Objecting to the name, Motown filed an injunction and had the record recalled; T-Neck renamed the act the Young Vandals and pressed more copies with the new moniker. After two more singles for T-Neck during 1970, the Baltimore natives disbanded when Otis Harris landed a gig with the Temptations, the group he admired so, later in 1970. (He changed his name to Damon since, as he said "the group already had an Otis"). What he thought was a lifetime gig, however, turned into a four-year stint for Damon. Dejected, but not for long, he re-formed the Young Vandals and renamed them Impact. The quartet consisted of the same members: Damon Harris, John Quinton Simms, Charles Timmons, and Donald Tighman (who's related to Sonny Til of the Orioles and whose real name was Earlington Tighman).
    They signed with a Philadelphia production company who secured a masters' deal with Atco Records. An album titled Impact dropped first, followed by the single "Happy Man," a popular 1976 disco cut. Impact put as much work in their backing vocals as the lead, something peculiar with D.C./Baltimore-area groups; the background voices competed with the lead for attention, making the songs more exciting. In addition to Harris' buttery falsetto, Impact had a David Ruffin-ish tenor and both were a joy to hear.
    The same procedure was followed with "Love Attack" and "One Last Memory." While the singles and the album had a winning sound, sales figures were less than projected and the Atco association terminated. They surfaced on Fantasy in 1977 with a new album, The Pac Is Back. Fantasy released two singles -- "Rainy Days" and "Smile Awhile" -- but with only minimal chart action and scant sales, they proved to be Impact's final releases. Harris later went solo and cut a couple of critically acclaimed albums that didn't do much. He later disappeared from the scene, moved to Reno, NV, to finish college, and still lives there. The whereabouts of the other members are unknown, but it's believed all live in the Baltimore/D.C. area.

    2) Hardcore punk band from Orange County. They are influenced by old school straight edge bands like Stand and Fight or Ten Yard Fight.

    3) Impact is an Hardcore Punk band from Ferrara, Italy. Together with other bands like Indigesti, Negazione and Declino they started the Italian Hardcore Punk stream in the early '80s. Here you can find the Official Homepage.

    4) A 1990s Romanian house group.

    5) A British drum and bass artist.

    6) An Italian rock/progressive rock band from Naples in Italy. In 2004 the guitar player Angiolo Pierantoni and the bass player Valerio “Fluido” Celentano met the drummer Rosario Vitiello and the project “Sabotage” came to life: a tribute to the timeless sound of Black Sabbath. The impact was explosive! The sound of the trio took shape instantly – forceful and compact – and the passage from cover songs to original compositions was a mere exchange of glances. The result is “Impact”, a classic three-piece band – bass, guitar, drums – with a sound ranging from the hard rock of the seventies to a more modern laid-back fusion, passing through progressive and melodic phases on the way.
    Line Up:
    Rosario Vitiello (drums and vocals)
    Angiolo Pierantoni (guitar and backing vocals)
    Valerio “Fluido” Celentano (bass and backing vocals)

    7) A trance-project of Richard Van Dongen, a Dutch producer. He has several releases on the In Trance We Trust label under his Impact alias.

    8) Impact are a five piece UK '82 group from Wales.

    9) Fort Wayne Punk band with a 5-song demo released under the title Cryptic, Caustic & Catchy.

    10) A French Canadian skinhead Oi! band.

    11) A Dutch heavy metal band from the eighties, with three songs released on the compilation LP Metal Clogs (1982), an album Never Too Young To Rock (1982), and an album The Flag (1987).

    14) Christian metal band from the late 1980s.

    15) Milwaukee Thrash Metal band called Impact. The band was formed in 1987 by Darren Abad, Nathan Kane and Glen Schroeder. They had one album "Take the Pain" in 1991 after a 5 Song Demo ("Erosion of Will", 1989). The demo makes up the first half (track 1-5) of the "Take the Pain" album. The Band split-up in 1993.
    Line Up:
    Darren Abad - Lead Guitar
    Nathan Kane - Lead Guitar, Vocals
    Charles "Chuck" Gesell - Bass (on "Erosion of Will" Demo)
    Dean Kendziera - Bass (on track 6-11 of the "Take the Pain" Album)
    Glen Schroeder - Drums

    16) Underground rapper from Las Vegas, Nevada.

    17) Randall J Stevenson, better known as Impact, is an American rapper/ R&B singer based out of North Carolina. Known for his versatile rhyme flow and melodic and soulful harmonies, Impact brings a heartbeat to music, reminiscent of Slum-Village and Kendrick Lamar, mixed with a 70s-80s R&B vibe.
    Impact has been writing poems and music since the tender age of 7. Impact was initially inspired to be an artist when he heard LL Cool J's “Im Bad” and decided to pursue his dreams to become an artist when no one in his city could beat him in a MC battle. Impact also lists inspirations as Marvin Gaye, El Debarge, Nas and Herbie Handcock, to name a few and has had the opportunity to not only work with his Idol Nas on his first EP “The Reset” album, but he also produced for Cartoon Networks Adult Swim. Impact is aiming to influence through soulful reminiscent frequencies, and wants to move others to find the missing heartbeat in music and not be a follower.
    Impact released an R&B album titled “ When April Meets May” in April 2017. Be on the lookout for more from this talented artist.
