This review is from: Join The Rejects - The Zonophone Years '79-'81 (Audio CD)
The Cockney Rejects were never the kind of band who were going to stay unheard, and this Oi-tastic anthology shows these East End football hooligan punks as a fine, if limited band with enough energy, anger, and songs to match their early reputation.

Its easy to forget, that immediately after punk broke mainstream in 1977, it was bands like the Cockney Rejects, UK Subs, and Ruts who capitilised by having regular chart singles as the genre morphed into new wave, and their welcome forays into the charts [ and on TOTP], meant that punks spirit was kept alive and well in the final days of the Seventies.

This 3 cd set may sound a little one dimensional[ although the band genuinely were progressing by the time of The Power and the Glory], but there are plenty of great rowdy songs that have stood the test of time well[ Police Car, War on the Terraces,The Greatest Cockney Rip-Off, and Bad Man for starters], meaning the rejects earned their reputation via their music, and not their notorious live shows, or football allegiances.

Coupled with some John Peel sessions, and non album singles, this anthology[ a strange concept in itself for a band like the Cockney Rejects], serves as a great testament to a band who had their moments in the sun, and still tour today.Finally add some up to date sleeve notes from Mick Geggus and you have a fine, virtually complete package from the band at a great price

Oi! music's grandfathers, the real deal when so many plastic bands were making headlines and money, they stood up for their peers and fought on the same streets..this is the very best of the very best..
