Menace

The 1977 punk bands had a few working class kids in amongst the art schoolers. Some of ’em were popular with the resurgent skinheads. Bands like Cock Sparrer and Slaughter and the Dogs had more than a touch of glam rock about them and Sham 69 and Menace had a large football terrace following. This article from Hard As Nails, 3, 1984 looks back at London band Menace.
