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.""

Signed by EMI after playing four local gigs (less than The Pistols!) they found themselves playing sell out tours across the UK and seeing their debut album storm the charts. Top of the Pops appearances followed, which became the stuff of legend as the band ran amok, finally being banned from the show.

Due to overwhelming demand, the band returned to the live circuit in 2000, playing to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe with a live set that is so energetic that it has to be seen to be believed - UK dates in 2013 are to be announced shortly.

""East End Babylon"" was directed by Richard England (executive producer of award-winning Dr. Feelgood documentary ""Oil City Confidential"") and edited by Henry Stein (who recently edited the Led Zeppelin concert film ""Celebration Day""). Of ""East End Babylon"" Mojo magazine said that it ""Manages to articulate more about the UK in the late 70s and early 80s than any sane person could rightfully expect... puts 80's Britain under a microscope. Fearless storytelling,"" whilst The Independent hailed ""an unflinching, bloody and bloody funny account of one of rock 'n' roll's rawest tales - and an elegy to the East End that spawned it.""

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.
