Cock Sparrer - Shock Troops - Black Ice w/ White Splatter Vinyl

Some records so perfectly capture an artist at a critical point in their creativity, and make such an impact, that they become not just synonymous with the band, but an essential piece of music history. Such is the case with Shock Troops, the album that not only became Cock Sparrer’s most acclaimed record but a defining moment for Oi!, punk rock, and underground music in general!

Originally released by Razor Records in 1983, Shock Troops proved to consist of song after song, each of which would become anthems of the burgeoning Oi! scene and far beyond. From the opening of “Where Are They Now?” on through “Take ‘Em All,” “We’re Coming Back,” all the way to the closing chords of “Out On An Island,” there isn’t a song in the bunch that any self-respecting punk rocker can’t shout along to. These working-class anthems are just as vital today, as proven by the crowds of beloved fans worldwide that continue to go wild at Sparrer’s live shows, where Shock Troops tracks still make up the heart of their setlists.

For nearly 15 years, Pirates Press Records has made certain this classic stayed in print, in an absolutely stunning assortment of colored vinyl pressings. In celebration of the band’s 50th year, we were proud to present a remastered version of Shock Troops, from the original 1/4” tapes, sounding better than ever! The 50th-anniversary gold jacket versions are sadly all sold out, but now we have the remastered versions on colored vinyl with the original artwork! Pure class.
