The Redskins (band)
The Redskins were a British band of the 1980s notable primarily for their left-wing politics. They were formed in York in the early 80s from the ashes of the punk band No Swastikas. Their line up featured Chris Dean (vocals/guitar), Martin Hewes (bass/backing vocals) and Nick King (drums). Chris Dean also wrote for the NME under the name X. Moore. Both Chris & Martin were members of the Socialist Workers Party. They released their first single "Lev Bronstein" on the CNT label in 1982. The band released one more single "Lean On Me" on CNT before signing to London Records. Nick King was replaced in 1985 by Paul Hookham. The band released one album, Neither Washington Nor Moscow, before splitting up at the end of 1986.
