The Oppressed announce their retirement

With a post on their facebook page Roddy Moreno and the Oppressed announce the retire of the band:
 
"THE OPPRESSED 1981 / 2016......................................
Sad to announce that that due to health problems I'm having to retire the band. I've had 35 fantastic years but now the time has come to call it a day. Big CHEERS to everyone involved from members old and new, to bands we've played with, and of course to all our fans who kept us alive for all these years.
Thanks for the memories................................................
Roddy Moreno."
 
 
The Oppressed was a Welsh anti-fascist Oi! band that formed in 1981 in Cardiff (United Kingdom) and one of the most important band of the SHARP movement. In 1989, Moreno visited New York City and met a few members of Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice (SHARP). On his return to the United Kingdom, he started promoting SHARP ideals to British skinheads.
