A.I.T.A. Hall Of Fame: Cockney Rejects

"Quintessentially British in the best possible ways... If The Clash had pretty well invented the terrace anthem take on punk-rock with their first album, the Rejects were the real deal — match lads who were in love with rock'n'roll and football — an east London answer to the Westway wonders... Listen to the Rejects and you are in a world of boxing clubs, smoky pubs, piss-stained terraces where you could stand up, good times and community." -Louder Than War

Download: "I'm Not A Fool" (live at Hollywood Studios, 1980)

* Paul Weller's solo demo for a track eventually recorded
by the Cockney Rejects with Weller and Pete Way from UFO.
