Sham 69

Highly influential streetpunk band Sham 69 will reunite their 'classic' 1977-1979 lineup (or at least most of it) to play a pair of US shows including Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas and Chaos in Tejas Austin. The 1977-1979 lineup is:

Jimmy Pursey: vocals
Dave Parsons: guitar
Dave Tregunna: bass
Mark Cain: drums
This lineup, also known as the Pursey/Parsons lineup (which may or may not have Mark Cain on drums this time around), is not to be confused with the version of the band led by Tim V (otherwise known as the Tim V lineup) (that's Tim V, Neil Harris, Ian Whitewood, Tony Feedback, and Al Campbell). The Tim V lineup operates out of Sham69.com, and both versions are currently playing live.

Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) joins names like Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Toys That Kill, and many more for Punk Rock Bowling 2012 in Las Vegas, NV on May 25-28, 2012. The fest also features pool parties, a bowling tournament, late-night club and much more in addition to the outdoor festival appearances. Tickets go on sale soon.

Rancid also have some anniversary shows coming up with Cock Sparrer.

Youth of Today are also playing the Black N Blue Bowl this year in NYC with many other hardcore bands incluiding The Mob who also play Chaos in Tejas this year (May 31-June 3).

Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) is one of many new additions to Chaos in Tejas which also added No Age, pygmylush, Screaming Females, Secret Prostitutes, Slug Guts (Australia), S U R V I V E, and Tenement. These additions are not to be confused with the set of bands that were announced earlier this week. Latest Chaos in Tejas lineup listed in full below.

The Mob playing Chaos in Tejas isn't the same as the one playing the BNB Bowl.

"maybe bands should, like, name themselves something original."

You're right, the NYC based Mob from the 80s should have totally used Google to see if some band from the UK in the late 70s may have taken that name already.

Posted by Anonymous | February 17, 2012 9:53 AM

is the mob playing?

I was at that Sham 69 CBGB's gig too. I believe Flipper of all people played too. It was when those insane, somewhat unrelated punk bills were being put together to say goodbye to the joint. Anyways, Pursey was definitely on vocals but were any other original band members in the line up for that gig? Just curious...

varukers aren't playing chaos anymore
