  • Lyrics
  • "Angels With Dirty Faces" was co-written by lead vocalist Jimmy Pursey and guitarist Dave Parsons. It was released on the Polydor label backed by the renamed "The Cockney Kids Are Innocent."

    Engineered by Peter Wilson, it was produced by Wilson and Pursey.
  • Sham 69's second single on Polydor - their third in all - the song is about the band's fans, although it takes its name from the 1938 James Cagney gangster film Angels With Dirty Faces. >>
