Cock Sparrer - Two Monkeys 50th Anniversary - LP


Pickup available at Appleton Store

Usually ready in 2-4 days

The second of the pair of records representing COCK SPARRER's re-emergence amidst the madness of the 1990s punk rock boom, Two Monkeys once again found these punk rock originators keeping time with the new generation while staying true to the classic sound that first made them an institution. Longtime fans were rewarded as the band added the final chapter to their "Working" trilogyÑwhich they began on the classic Shock Troops and continued on Guilty as ChargedÑfinally concluded on Two Monkeys with ÒI Live in Marbella (Working Pt 3).Ó However, perhaps the two highlights of the proceedings display a different side of Cock Sparrer altogether and an emotional core for the album. "Battersea Bardot" is a nostalgic tribute to the late London-born actress Carol White. And finally, the band, now grown men with priorities for home and family, made space on the album for a love song, admiring the tough-as-nails women who had captured their hearts on ÒEast End Girl.Ó
