Biography

100% working class Oi! music from Holland.

Evil Conduct has been frequently compared with legendary Oi! bands from the early eighties, to the point that they were even nicknamed “the Dutch Last Resort”. Although the band regards this as a big compliment, it’s obvious that Evil Conduct has its own identity and its own distinctive sound. Their music may be classified as basic, straight-in-yer-face, sing-along working class Oi! with powerful vocals.

Evil Conduct was originally formed in 1984. But, with 2 skinheads in the line-up, it was a challenge to get any gigs in the eighties. After recording a demo and only a handful of gigs on their record, the band called it quits in 1988. In the nineties however, the demo-recordings were released as two 7” singles, and as hardly anybody knew anything about the band, they became some kind of obscure legend. In 1998-99 the band agreed to make a comeback after numerous requests by promoters. Since then, Evil Conduct has played gigs all over Europe and they have obtained a good live reputation. They’re also renowned for having a strong skinhead identity, and singer-guitarist Han is a well-known tattoo artist working at KING OF KINGS TATTOO

In the beginning of 2006, Han and Ray welcomed Joost as their new bass-player. His rough style made Evil Conduct’s music even more punchy. The new line up recorded a 7” EP called ‘Never Let You Down’, which was released in the Autumn of 2006. After that, the band concentrated on gigs and writing new material. Since then, they’ve released several albums, including a reissue of their debut, “Sorry… No!”
