Steaming into 2014 the band finished a successful first part of a World Tour 2013, and within 2 month's they started the 2nd part of the tour Scandinavia and Europe with 15 more countries to go. The band had just released their last album THEIR FINEST HOUR along with their new film THIS BAND IS SO GORGEOUS about the bands successful tour of China which has been premiered around the world at various film festivals and continues to do so.
The band which was formed in 1975, to which its original founding member and guitarist Neil Harris still remains today. With hits such as BORSTAL BREAKOUT and HEY LITTLE RICH BOY being performed in 76-77, the band went on to have others such as HURRY UP HARRY, ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES and the anthem IF THE KIDS ARE UNITED.

The band has had many line up changes but the most notable was Jimmy Pursey's departure following his sacking in 2006, in which he was immediately replaced by the now vocalist Tim V.
Tim V's reign saw him take the band from its lowest point to get it touring worldwide with 3 successful selling albums along with World Tours and major festivals...and he has clocked up more shows than any other previous line up.
The band currently features along with Tim V and Neil, the bands longest serving drummer at 28 years behind the kit for SHAM 69.. Ian Whitewood.
On Bass guitar we have Al Campbell, Al who has a pristine pedigree in Punk after serving 13 years with the UK SUBS and also playing guitar with both MARKY RAMONE and JAYNE COUNTY AND THE ELECTRIC CHAIRS.
Last but not least the band decided upon returning to SHAM 69's original format of 2 guitarist's and so on Lead guitar we have Tony Feedback. Tony is most noted for leading the Mod revival in 78-79 with his band LONG TALL SHORTY and his string skills saw him join the ANGELIC UPSTARTS during their most successful period.

Now with such anthemic songs as SING WHEN YOUR WINNING making the charts both here in the UK and Europe and other songs in the last 4 years such as LAST GANG IN LONDON being used in movies the band have achieved so much against the tide. The band who are praised for kicking arse onstage and at a ripe age are dumbfounding audiences world wide with their passion and total stage presence.

So this is SHAM 69 now and though many have scoffed at their existence they have come to regret it having been overwhelmed by the power of the performance.

The band new single SING WHEN YOUR WINNING is now out on I-TUNES and the video is available here:

It also features on the soundtrack of the new Brit flick ST GEORGES DAY!!!

Cockswain cox·swain [kok-suhn, -sweyn]
1. the steersman of a racing shell.
2. a person who is in charge of a ship's boat and its crew, under an officer, and who steers it.
3. a scruffy Celtic rock band from Phoenix, AZ

The project that became Cockswain was conceived in late 2011 by songwriter, lead singer, and mandolin player Neil Jay Ward, and their debut was St. Paddy's Day 2012. The group mixes in pub standards in between covers of The Pogues, The Dubliners, and Tom Waits with a high-energy punk rock vibe, all while original music remains the focus

Their debut album of Celtic folk punk from Arizona was released on April 25th 2015. All original songs about, booze, lost loves, ghosts, devils, Cockswain is a unique blend of traditional Irish, sea shanties, and American rock and roll with the energy of old school punk rock!
