Sham 69 (Tim V) on tour with a new double album!
For the first time in many years, the band have decided to follow up the success of BLACK DOG with their latest album TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH and its a double too. The album songs reflect as did BLACK DOG the changes not only in society but also in the scene in general. A swath of political insanity both on the streets and in the halls of power. A reflection of our lives as we get older and of all those we have loved and lost over the years. This album is also a salute to both Neil Harris co-founder of SHAM 69 and the sad loss of Tony Feedback, both of whom are no longer with us.
The band was formed in 1975, and with hits such as BORSTAL BREAKOUT and HEY LITTLE RICH BOY being performed in 76-77, the band went on to have others such as HURRY UP HARRY, ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES and the anthem IF THE KIDS ARE UNITED.
The band had many line up changes but the most notable was Jimmy Pursey’s departure following his sacking in 2006, in which he was immediately replaced by the now vocalist Tim V.
With over 12 line up changes since Punk pundits worldwide have sited this change to be the best yet with the sincerest force since the days of 77 Punk.
