Are Cock Sparrer not from Dagenham? Nicander 19:00, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

fifth album[edit]

In the article "Two Monkeys" is written that it was theyre fifth album, in this article is "Here we stand" the fifths album. Please edit. --87.174.78.129 (talk) 02:46, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Album chart positions[edit]

I have checked with the online database http://www.everyhit.com to confirm that no Cock Sparrer albums to date have reached the charts. I was a bit surprised that none of them had even reached the top 75 of the album charts, but I have amended the article with "Did not chart" to replace the "???"s. I don't have any printed reference books to double check. Grievous Angel (talk) 05:42, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Politics[edit]

I know the lyrics of their music isn't right-wing, but I think the page should talk about some of the members' far right political beliefs. ---- bill

  • Do you have any reliable references about the band members' alleged political beliefs? If not, the topic should not be included.Spylab (talk) 00:21, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Well sometimes fans start zig heiling at their shows, also they play at known white supremist venues. ---- bill They can't really control their fans now, can they? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.15.11.146 (talk) 20:30, 1 January 2010 (UTC) No but they can stop playing WP gigs if they wanted to. ---- bill

Sheer nonsense! Produce evidence that they play at, "white supremist venues"! This is sheer prejudice planted by people who think all Oi bands are right wing. Neither have I ever seen fans Zeig Heiling at their shows.......Faren — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.7.92.123 (talk) 19:55, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

What does Barrow means?[edit]

Hello. You'll have to excuse me but im working on translating this article to the swedish wikipedia and i got stuck quite a early. I suppose "Cock Sparrow" is Cockney slang for "Barrow", but what exactly is Barrow? In this context what does "familiarity" means? Benjaminjuhlin (talk) 18:10, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
