The original Hersham Boys, Sham 69, are back on the road and will be performing many of their greatest punk smashes at Cardiff Tramshed on May 18.
Jimmy Pursey, founder member and singer with the legendary punk band, has reformed most of the 1977 line-up with Dave Parsons (guitar), Dave Tregunna (bass). Due to popular demand, they return for select gigs, to play Classic Sham 69 as well as new material.
Formed in Hersham in 1975, Sham 69 became one of London’s must-go-see bands.
Their first single, ‘I Don’t Wanna’, produced by John Cale (formerly of Velvet Underground) was released on Step Forward Records in ’77, its success prompted Polydor Records to sign them up.
