THE COCKNEY REJECTS EXPLODED ONTO THE SCENE IN 1979 AND GRABBED THE INDUSTRY QUITE LITERALLY, BY THE THROAT.
These four kids from London's East End were battle hardened veterans of the streets, smoky boxing clubs, and West Ham's bearpit terraces, with experiences beyond their tender years.
They were the first and original band to weld driving rock rhythms to terrace singalongs, and they crashed out of the East End like a demented freight train, flattening everything in their path.
The searing soundtrack they created has refused to die, and with US bands such as Rancid, Green Day and the Dropkick Murphys citing the band as major influences, they have become a cult to a new generation.
Older and wiser, the Cockney Rejects now tour the globe igniting audiences worldwide with their red hot live set and uniting kids from the four corners of the earth with their particular brand of rock'n'roll and West Hammery.
