Sham 69

One of the top punk bands of the late seventies at MECA
MECA Swindon
Friday 11 November 2016, 7.30pm
Sham 69 were quite simply one of THE top punk bands of the late seventies, producing a stream of catchy, populist, short and sweet punk tunes including 'If The Kids Are United', 'Hurry Up Harry' and 'Angels With Dirty Faces' that made the British charts.

What makes Sham 69 even more interesting though is their arrival on the scene when Punk began to move from the more elitist fashion driven art scene to a rougher, more working class ethic. While some original faces on the scene perceived this as a dumbing down, others saw it as a breath of fresh air on a moribund scene.

Above all Sham 69 are a fantastic, full on punk band with great tunes, a top singer and a dynamic live act.
