Formed in the turbulence of late Seventies East London as an answer to the dominant art school punk, Cockney Rejects cornered their patch with their brand of terrace singalong classics and a white hot live set. ""East End Babylon"" is the no-holds-barred and acclaimed documentary that tells their story through interviews, rare archive footage of the band and their East End roots plus dynamic live footage.
The Rejects were fiercely working class, the band eschewed the political ramblings of punk's first wave and sang about their own circumstances. Joe Strummer famously said that, ""The Rejects were the real deal"", whilst Morrissey reckoned ""Jeff Turner was obviously singing to avoid killing someone.""
As well as the film itself, the DVD release includes over 90 minutes of outstanding bonus extras including unseen music and interview footage. "East End Babylon" was featured in the Sundance Film Festival in London on 26th April 2013 and nominated for the BAFTA's longlist.
