Their first single was a 12” released on Step Forward. For me this was another punk classic, and personally I couldn’t care how they were classified. I Don't Wanne is 1.40 long and still makes me wanna jump around and protest about working, etc. Red London is a mighty 1.50 long, this is the average one for me, and then the excellent Ulster. The cover is incorrect as side 1 is "I Don't Wanna" and "Red London" and "Ulster" is on the b-side.
If anyone has time and knows how to, they can go and up date Wikipedia as they do not show the original Sham line-up with Albie Maskell on Bass (see back cover).
Band: Sham 69
Label: Step Forward
1. I Don't Wanna
2. Red London
So ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:
If you like this then go and buy there excellent first album. I wouldn’t bother with any of the others, although if you do want to get a few more of their singles then the singles collection isn’t bad, although you will have to put up with a few a of their very commercial hits:
