Grinny the drummer came from solid northern socialist stock When they made records for us Ian Stuart showed no signs of fascism. The skinhead image was a — maybe in hindsight misconceived — fashion thing. It was cooked up by a bunch of us, including the band's then-management and the photographer Peter Kodik.
However, John "Grinny" Grinton later stated in an interview that he had no problem with the new Skrewdriver, and that he became a member of the National Front along with Donaldson. Donaldson died on 24 September following a car crash. His death catalyzed the demise of Skrewdriver, and had a strong impact in the white power rock scene.

Ian Stuart Donaldson was the only member of the record's line-up to play on future Skrewdriver releases. The album contains none of the neo-Nazi -themed and white power -themed lyrics that Skrewdriver used later.
All tracks by Ian Stuart Donaldson , except where noted. The tracks "Streetfight" and "Unbeliever" intended to be the A and B sides on a 7" which never made it past the test pressing stage were included on the German version of the album as tracks 8 and 12, respectively. I find it extremely condescending that discogs like ebay feel the need to take it upon themselves to "protect" the market and by extension buyers like myself from material they feel may be deemed offensive. I love discogs as a reference source and an excellent marketplace , however, their obvious political agenda or at minimum need to be the guardians of good taste is NOT an aspect of the site which I find of any value or even necessary.
It easily stands toe to toe with beloved classics by The Damned, S. Pistols, Clash, Buzzcocks, , etc. It's a damn shame that this gem cannot be purchased on discogs due to the bands' later political stance s. So while you'll have to go elsewhere to purchase "All Skrewed Up" or several of the excellent collections of pre-RAC Skrewdriver material, I strongly urge you to do so. Skrewdriver as an early band signed to Chiswick has a pivotal place in the history of punk rock and like early Menace "G.
And as far as the "racist" RAC Rock Against Communism era albums are concerned, if you can put up with the lame Right-wing nationalist crap and the very occasional "slur" albums such as "Hail The New Dawn", "Blood And Honour", and "White Rider" as well as Ian Stuart's first solo album are extremely well-made, highly melodic, supremely catchy, boots and braces skinhead street punk for the ages.
I truly believe that HAD Skrewdriver never moved quite so far to the Right that there's a good chance they may have become and been remembered as the greatest Oi band of all-time although, I probably still would give the slight edge to Sham 69 as I feel over the course of just 3 LPs Jimmy and Co. Because art transcends politics, especially if each listener has a mind of their own and is willing to use it.
