Who Killed Joe Public is the Eleventh studio album by punk rock band Sham 69 and the second album not to feature original singer Jimmy Pursey. During the making of the album Jimmy Pursey put up on his official site a message saying "Who Killed Sham 69?", an obvious play on words aimed at Parson. One year after the album's release Jimmy and Parson have since settled their differences and reformed the line-up from 1977 thus leaving and angering the leftover members. The leftover members formed their own band called 'IF...' and toured the UK with Tony Feedback of the Angelic Upstarts and Rick Buckler of The Jam having two drummers live. After feeling hard done by the leftover members then decided to also tour under the name Sham 69 after original member Neil Harris joined them.
