cock sparrer 50th anniversary

Cock Sparrer announce 50th Birthday Bash!

Initially formed in 1972 by Colin McFaull, Mick Beaufoy, Steve Burgess and Steve Bruce, all of which had known each other since the age of 11. Now 50 years on, the band have chosen to celebrate the milestone with a rather special concert, the band have commented:

Next year see’s us hit 50 years of being together as a band. It only seems like yesterday that we were in Trinity’s Youth Club, East Ham playing covers badly and listening to Will DJ and get paid more than us…! But here we are with 50 years of touring, drinking, laughing and hanging out with our best mates. If you told us then that 50 years later, we’d be in the position that we are today, with the most loyal fans worldwide that know how to have a party, we’d have taken that over any gold discs or appearances on Top Of The Pops any day.

So we thought we’d throw you a bit of a special party!

Saturday 10th September 2022
The Roundhouse, Chalk Road
London

This won’t be a usual Sparrer gig. We’ve got a few things planned that we’ve not done before. We’re going to be doing 2 sets and there will be a few surprises. We’ve got a year to prepare the best jolly up we’ve ever had, and we want you to be part of it.

We’re havin’ it large in London and this is a one-off show, never to be repeated, in an iconic venue that we’ve never played before.

It’s ALL AGES (with under 16s accompanied by an adult and under 14s accompanied by an adult and in the seated areas only.)

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
