Steve Burgess. What's It Like to Be Old? Get a Rope. Argy Bargy. Run Away Johnny. Tough Guys. Take 'Em All. Don't Blame Us. I Got Your Number. Because You're Wrong. Secret Army. Where Are They Now? The name was once Cock Sparrow if that helps.

Cock Sparrer didn't play the UK for years because they didn't want anyone getting hurt, a problem not found elsewhere. To them it wasn't worth the money. Sham 69 wanted it both ways and the crowds they incited bit them on the ass. Sparrer stayed in the pub and shook their heads. Writing on their site about the recently cancelled Wasted USA festival, they note: It has been suggested that part of this problem has been caused by some bands demanding their money up front.

Anybody who knows us, or has worked with us will know this to be the case. I'm telling you, Cock Sparrer are working class heroes with an ingrained integrity that's not a political statement.

Because You'Re Young 5. I think they saw it as a bit of a quest to re-invigorate seaside towns that had seen better days. I would imagine that they were grateful for the extra income from this unexpected source. Sparrer were asked to play the Saturday night to a packed house in The Empress Ballroom, where several punters commented that they thought the floor was going to collapse from bouncing up and down so much! A good night was had by all. There had been many offers for Cock Sparrer to get back in the recording studio during the ten years after Two Monkeys , and on several occasions, the band had sat down to discuss just that subject.

The band were on such a high after the success of Blackpool that once again the subject was raised over a pint or three, but this time it was decided to do a bit more about it. Like the band, he recognised some of the failings of the previous releases, and wanted to produce an album that everyone could be proud of.

Slowly, the idea of putting a new Sparrer album together was taking shape. Over the next few months, CDs were once again dropped through letterboxes with demos and ideas for songs on them, and in January , the band started on a series of rehearsals that would eventually knock those songs into shape. The plan to get Lars involved in the recording of the album failed to materialise, due to his work commitments and the timescales involved, and eventually it was decided that he would mix the album once recorded.

Lars mixed the album over the course of the summer of , after which it was handed over to Captain Oi! Having spent quite a while — by Sparrer standards — writing, arranging and recording the new album, thoughts moved to the launch. Why Wolverhampton? Cock Sparrer at The Civic Hall, Wolverhampton on Saturday, November 3rd, will go down as a seminal evening in the history of the band.

People came from all over the world to make this night one of the most memorable Sparrer gigs ever. Packed to the rafters, everybody sang, shouted, and punched the air to every song in an atmosphere of fun and celebration. Even the new songs that no-one had heard yet were well received.

They continue to play the odd gig — and some of them have been very odd!! As soon as that changes, then it will be time to hang up the Martens. Countries visited for the first, but hopefully not for the last time that year included Serbia, Norway, and Holland, while they also played the Ruhrpott Rodeo in Germany and Oktoberfest in Girona.

The band were keen to do both festivals and club shows, as well as wanting to fulfill a promise to themselves to play London again. After the show on Friday night, they were told by The Forum management that bar takings for the night almost broke the house record.

Well my friends, you nearly did it! In fact, I think the record would have been broken easily if they could have kept up and were a bit quicker behind the ramp. They admitted afterwards that they had underestimated the number of bar staff required to fulfill the thirsty needs of the Sparrer faithful.

A good effort, my friends, a good effort! Towards the end of the year, Pirates Press Records released the ultimate Cock Sparrer collection in a limited edition, vinyl box set. The package took over 18 months to put together, and is something that the boys are rightly very proud of. Dates in Berlin, Leipzig, Croatia, and a return to Blackpool were all highlights.

Amongst the many special gigs organized, there were 6 with Rancid, who by coincidence were celebrating their 20th year together. These were topped off with a final show together under the Rebellion banner in Birmingham, UK, also in December Amongst the other gig highlights of that year were a massive show at the Alsterdorfer Sportshalle in Hamburg, as well as a trip to play Philadelphia and Boston. Not the most comfortable ride, but made easier by West Ham playing in the Championship Play Off Final as they travelled.

Poor signal reception meant that only snippets of game were watched, with much swearing and threats to throw laptops out of the bus window, etc. All was good in the end though. What seemed a fairly simple idea resulted in a lot of hand-wringing and cursing, as old favorites were either left out or snaffled up by other band members. With Cock Sparrer now playing more gigs than ever before, the opportunity to visit many new places and make many new friends has been gratefully accepted by the band.

They obviously treat each show as special, and whether they are playing to 50 people or 5,, the same level of professionalism and attention to detail is applied. In saying that, there have been some that stand out, either because of the venue or location.

They have played in the grounds of a castle in Serbia, and a bullring in the Basque Country. For the Pirates Press 10th Anniversary party in San Francisco in October , the street was closed off, a stage erected and a good time was had by all. If you had asked any member of the band whether they ever thought that they would have the opportunity to play Las Vegas, they would have laughed you out of the bar.

But thanks to Punk Rock Bowling, Sparrer have played there in , , , and are due to return in !

Almost minutes of COCK SPARRER stuff, their Morecombe (Holidays in the Sun) show, interviews with the band, a run down memory lane, nice guitar tutorial by Mr. Micky Beaufoy, videoclips such as "We love you" from , "Because you're young" A really great DVD, highly recommended!!!!.

    Dec 29,  · Cock Sparrer,TKO Records and Belgium filmmaker Pollet Yannick collectively produced this 8 hour, 2-DVD set featuring concerts, interviews and clubexandalynewlapeconmembspanat.coinfo 90 minute documentary is a glorified home movie. It's a bit random and a bit much at times, and gawd knows the concert footage needs an index, but my money is my vote for the first and greatest street punk/Oi band of all time, Cock Fricking.
  8. Zulurg says:
    COCK SPARRER's importance in Punk Rock's history is simply undeniable. What You See Is What You Get is a project over 2 years in the making put together by Belgian filmmaker Pollet Yannick and the band. It features footage from and documents the entire 30+ year history of the band.
