This year’s ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Their First Groezrock’ prize definitely goes to living punk legends Cock Sparrer. It doesn’t get any more authentic than this, boys and girls. Straight from London's East End, this band has been blasting its way around the world with its Street punk en Oi songs since ages, even before any Punk subculture existed. Since the early seventies, childhood friends Colin McFaull, Mick Beaufoy, Steve "Burge" Burgess and Steve Bruce are the gang we know as Cock Sparrer. They released six studio albums, a whole lot of live albums and singles throughout the years. Cock Sparrer was never a high profile band; they didn’t make a record every two years and didn’t go on endless tours around the globe, but on the other hand, they never really went off the radar either. Every one of their records made a huge impact on the scene at the time of release. Their influence and legacy are undeniable and cannot be overstated. Without Cock Sparrer no Oi, no Street punk, or at least not as we know it. But despite its long history, Cock Sparrer isn’t a static nostalgia trip. The band still is what it’s always been, a bunch of down-to-earth, hard working Cockneys, making tight and great effing songs! We are extremely proud to present this great band to all of you! So if you, like us, can’t stand the peace and quiet, come on over for a running riot!
