"SHOCK TROOPS" LP

Get one of these while supplies last... they are VERY limited!

Deluxe package with 7":
Packaging these two records was a no-brainer. This really is the quintessential CockSParrer. If you don't own these two, they are a must. If you do, and you're a collector or a DJ, this would still be a brilliant addition to your collection. The packaging is top notch, and they've both been remastered for vinyl to sound as good as they possibly can! This version is limited to 250 pieces.

Standard package:
Available in both black and colored vinyl, this pinnacle record is something that should be available, and affordable to everyone looking to invest in some punk roots. Without sacrificing the quality of the vinyl itself, this version is just a little less intense on the packaging side than the casewrapped collectors version that comes with the "England Belongs to Me" bonus 7". These uncoated jackets are still top notch, and the mastering for vinyl has this sounding as good or better than it ever has! For the kids...

"RUNNING RIOT '84" LP

It makes perfect sense binding Sparrer's second full length here with their first well known, good quality live recording, captured shortly afterwards. A three color screenprinted Obi-Strip wraps around both jackets.

It is available in Claret and Blue Vinyl just like the other Sparrer releases, as well as a black vinyl version with RR84 in a deluxe casewrapped textured jacket. Both titles are comprised of remastered cuts, and together give you a vivid taste of the band's tumultuous (yet fruitful) early eighties. We're also offering RR84 on its own in the same deluxe packaging as is included with the ESSENTIALS boxset, for all those seeking the highest quality version of this record ever produced.

"TRUE GRIT OUTTAKES '84" LP

Available in three versions, and most importantly remixed and remastered, this foil-stamped gem includes all of the tracks that were recorded for their debut with Decca, only un-cut, with all the count-ins and banter in between. This record is like a snapshot of being in the studio with CockSParrer, during the VERY early days. As it would be with such an amazing band, many of these songs have held strong through decades of new music and continue to reign as many of the "hits" they still perform today. To hear those songs at their roots is special, and we felt that this record deserved equally special packaging to commemorate how legendary it is to leagues of fans and vinyl collectors alike.

"GUILTY AS CHARGED" LP

Available in three versions, and remixed and remastered to bring out the energy underneath this perhaps under-appreciated release, this again allows this music to shine, as it should. Amidst all the craziness in the "punk rock" world in 1994, this was Sparrer's answer... a tip of the hat and two fingers in the air letting everyone know that what all the kids were all of a sudden making money selling, they'd been doing for over twenty years. ...Because they loved it! They weren't going to stop having fun and doing things their way, as can be witnessed all over this record. Two of the versions even include a limited edition one-sided silkscreened 10" with the (remastered) studio tracks from the "Run Away" single released in Germany the following year.

"TWO MONKEYS" LP

If for no other reason than to listen to the remixed and remastered version of "A.U." as loud as your stereo can take it, picking up one of the three versions of this classic record should be a must. On top of that, two of the versions include a limited RECTANGULAR picture disc with previously unreleased tracks from 2000's San Francisco gig.

"BACK HOME" 2XLP

Recorded in 2003, and originally released just on CD and as part of the soundtrack to TKO's DVD, this record has gone too long without anyone having done it justice on vinyl. We aim to do that with this, packing two LP's full of the hits and the energy of one of the many pinnacle gigs they've recorded over the last decade. This, as with their other live records, truly serves as a 'best of' record at the same time as an energetic souvenir to a moment in history...

"RUNNIN' RIOT USA" 2XLP

Until the release of "Here We Stand" in 2007, and after having listened to "Two Monkeys" and "Guilty as Charged" till our ears bled Claret and Blue, this record was a staple from the moment TKO released it. Well out of print on vinyl, we felt it necessary to reissue it alongside the other CockSParrer ESSENTIALS. Their first US tour, after already having been a band for nearly 30 years, was a feat; and the energy that surrounded the week, and the four amazing gigs truly ended up on this record. The packaging remains virtually the same as the original pressing, however it has been remastered and is being re-issued only on 180gram vinyl.
