Review

Review Text Bloody Minded: The Best of Cock Sparrer includes most of the band's finest numbers, but half the record is made up of more recently recorded live versions of their old hits rather than the original singles. Cock Sparrer sound exactly the same as they always have, and "Take 'Em All," their anti-record-company rant, and "Where Are They Now?," one of their typically disillusioned working-class tunes, hold up fine. So does their classic "Running Riot," with its memorable chorus, "I can't stand the peace and quiet/All I want is a running riot." "Sunday Stripper" is one of the greatest striptease tunes ever written, and while this version is excellent, the original recording is perfect. The new stuff is mighty catchy too, though it's amazing that these middle age men are still writing songs about beating up some poor fool in a pub, as they have with "A.U." Younger bands that imitate this music usually sound awful, especially American kids trying to sing with Cockney accents. So check out the real deal here. Unless you're lucky enough to find a copy of Cock Sparrer Live and Loud, this best-of record will do you just fine. ~ Adam Bregman
