The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall presents:
Cock Sparrer are widely considered to be one of the most influential street punk bands in history. British music paper SOUNDS sums it up perfectly in a live review from April 1978:
"Musically and visually, the Cock Sparrer crew are just about as motley and uncouth as its possible for a band to project. Imagine five collectively imageless Cockneys with hair length varying from skinhead to Woody Roller, wearing clothes that looked they pool from the jumble sales, and singing about how East End life is tough but fun...(they)...create a good time sound that occasionally approximates to the original spirit of Slade."
Don't miss Cock Sparrer with Off With Their Heads, The Bodies, and Western Addiction this April!
