Cock Sparrer - Runnin' Riot

|

On this date in 1977, Cock Sparrer released their debut single, "Runnin' Riot". It was backed by "Sister Suzie". Neither song appeared on an album. As a matter of fact, the band, in its original incarnation, only released two singles before breaking up in 1978. They re-formed in 1982 after some of their songs found their way into Oi! compilations and started recording and playing again. The London punk/Oi! band has been on and off since. Despite the fact that they had not released an album prior to their original breakup, they did have a self-titled album planned that included both tracks on their debut single. It wasn't released until years later.

Howdy. I'm only now commenting but I've been at this blog for a long while. You are just fantastic, as a resource, for a laugh, for a total daily mind-warp back to the great old days. This is the greatest blog ever, and all of you responsible for it have earned all of our good will and time in heaven to boot. Keep up the good work. Love from NYC
