This year marks a whopping 40-year milestone for the British punk/oi! pioneers Cock Sparrer, who got their start in London in the early 70’s, years before bands like the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones got their start. Departing from our regular random cover song posts, this week we’ll feature a whole collection of songs that are covered off of all the band’s albums; from their 1977 debut self-titled album through their most recent release from 2007 “Here We Stand.”
Today’s track “We’re Coming Back” first appeared on the band’s 1983 record “Shock Troops,” their most popular album to date. Click here to listen to the original and other renditions by Bouncing Souls, Tankard, and The Dead Pets.
