inpopular, underrated and forgot album recorded during in a small period of activity from 1987 to 1989. Jimmy Pursey plus three new members made this original Sham 69 album, which has nothing to do with punk music but with mainstream hard-rock in the vein of Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi or Def Leppard, to mention just a few ones. Simple rock'n'roll, sax, trumpets, keyboards and some kind of electronic sound production, was the formule to made this ten songs album. The true is If you forget this is Sham 69, the album is not bad at all but is nor punk neither new wave, but simply hard-rock.

"information libre"

Time:    32 min.

Late 80's and early 90's music scene experimented a sort of revival of "flower power" era and paid attention to bands as: The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Led Zeppelin and other psychedelic rock and folk bands, and Sham 69 was not an exception. The true is, their use of saxophone and keyboards gives a lot to this album a very sophisticated feel which can to remind psychedelic rock, sixties pop music and A.O.R. music inspiration. Then the album was issued by own band under name of "Rotate Records" and passed very unnoticied by both, public and medias. There still is the mix of sociopolitical awareness and attempts to recapture past glory along with something as formulaic and empty as "Hurry Up Harry." Sham 69 was underrated early on, and this lack of attention may have stunted the band's growth.
