While this series was begun by long-time contributor Roberto, it is fellow blogger, Bristolboy who has generously provided today's rip. May we all be thankful to such giving people.
The Little Roosters (more HERE), who share three members with Oi! founders, Cock Sparrer and one associate member with synth-poppers, Yaz [!], impressed a lot of people with their glam-rock/pup-rock/rock-rock style, including one Joe Strummer. The Clash-man in fact produced much of the band's three-singles-and-an-album discography and was supposedly paid back with new teeth (no, really!).
The Roosters debut single may have 1979 stamped on it but with its slinky tempos, bluesey riffs and wailing harmonica it coulda come straight outta 1965!

MRML readers, don't let Roberto and me down on this new series! Do you like this Strummer-fortified/Cock Sparrer-powered rock n' roll????? Let us know in the COMMENTS section (where you'll find She Cat Sister Floozie).
For the band's only full-length LP go visit the brilliant Sons of the Dolls (and don't forget to drop a word of thanks to Midnight Rambler over there!)
