"A gorgeous summer pop song, Love Somebody is like an old bluebeat tune with girl vocals and some subtle scratching and sampling. Halfway through they say 'How do we stop this being played on Radio Two?'. Answer: 'Well, we could say f**k in the middle...'. Priceless!"

"... the 5,6,7,8's meets Jilted John, with surfer riffs, rockabilly, old skool hip hop scratching and an underlying wit that could curdle milk. The kind of band you'd love to hang out with, and you'd be dead in a week mind you"

Feeling a bit camera shy


Our one-sheet says:

'The release of ‘Music for Lapdancers’ by fast, fun, Essex gypsy band ‘The Fighting Cocks’, is an addition to their already influential discography. They have had numerous releases on compilations as well as their hugely successful single ‘Love Somebody Yes I do’ released on FGZ Records.
The Fighting Cocks’ influences, (as well as kebabs and beer!) include classic rock bands such as the Ramones and The Clash, heavy American metal bands such as Pantera, as well as Bollywood and Daphne and Celeste! This eclectic mix gives them an individual style which you won’t forget!
‘The Fighting Cocks are unique, there are no other bands that could combine such fun elements into such a varied assault on the ears… magical!’ – Between Planets Magazine
Formerly super-cult band ‘Szeki Kurva’, The Fighting Cocks have been deemed ‘The most kick-ass band in Europe’ by Guitar Magazine.
The Fighting Cocks are not afraid to push the boundaries and create controversy wherever they go. Whether their audiences love them or hate them, they definitely remember them!
‘Aggressive, cynical and knowingly shambolic…The Cocks infiltrate the space between Daphne and Celeste and Limp Bizkit’ – NME
The Fighting Cocks will be touring this year, to support the release of the new album!'
