Overview

Originally released in 1994, with Cock Sparrer eventually declaring themselves displeased with the finished product, Guilty as Charged catches East London's finest battling desperately against the rising tides that were threatening to sweep punk down a grunge-inflected cul de sac, and restating their own musical values with ferocious vision. Where the album fell down was in the production more than anything else; the 11 songs that comprised the original album were as strong as any recent Sparrer epics, as live tapes from the same time will prove. But the mix was muddy and, with the group's usual street-savvy savagery on sonic hiatus, there really wasn't much else to keep your attention. No surprise, then, that this album is recommended only to completists; anybody wanting to experience how mid-'90s vintage Cock Sparrer should sound are pointed instead toward the 2009 rejig, sensibly titled Guilty as Charged 2009
