Seminal streetpunk band Sham 69 is playing at Punk Rock Bowling 2012 in Vegas, reuniting their "classic" 1977-1979 lineup made up of Jimmy Pursey on vocals, Dave Parsons on guitar, Dave Tregunna on bass and Mark Cain on drums. According to Brooklyn Vegan,
This lineup, also known as the Pursey/Parsons lineup (which may or may not have Mark Cain on drums this time around), is not to be confused with the version of the band led by Tim V (otherwise known as the Tim V lineup) (that's Tim V, Neil Harris, Ian Whitewood, Tony Feedback, and Al Campbell). The Tim V lineup operates out of Sham69.com, and both versions are currently playing live.
Sham 69 will be performing with Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Toys That Kill, and more on May 25-28, 2012. Tickets go on sale on Feb. 24. Check out the lineup that's been announced so far after the jump.
Full lineup (so far): Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, The Briefs, Sham 69, Hepcat, Hot Water Music, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Dead Ending, Street Dogs, Real McKenzies, Old Man Markley, The Beltones, Far From Finished, Toys That Kill, American Heist, Holding on to Sound, The Bots the Dips, and American Werewolves.
