INFA RIOT came to life in 1979, after Lee Wilson and his brother Floyd moved up to London from Plymouth.They teamed up with Barry Damery and Mark Reynolds and were influenced by the ANGELIC UPSTARTS.

The North London band’s rise to fame began with a live review in Sounds, written by none other than Mensi of the Angelic Upstarts, who was so impressed by the group that he raved about them for weeks after, and this was only their fourth gig. While supporting CHELSEA and The dark at the Lyceum, they apparently blew both bands off the stage, getting rave reviews inserval fanzines of the time. Garry Bushell who then wrote for the music paper Sounds, asked the band to appear on the second Oi! album „Strenght Thru Oi!“ and the group contributed two tracks, in the form of „Riot Riot“ and „We Out Number You“. Infa Riot found themselves on the Oi! map, both songs echoed the feeling of what was happening to the country at the time and „We Out Number You“ was especially poignant.

The lad’s first 7“ release, „Kids Of The 80’s“ appeared in October 1981 and reached number 10 in the indie chart. Originally the band were due to release „Five Minute Fashions“ on a different label, but the deal fell through at the eleventh hour. The group then embarked on a short tour with the BUSINESS. While 3each Dawn I Die“ featured on the classic „Carry On Oi!“ album. They followed this with another tour of the UK, this time with punk band the EXPLOITED. By the beginning of 1982 the band were once again back on the road playing the opening night at Skunx, the now almost mythical punk club in London.
