Formed: Cumbria, United Kingdom
This from David Ball of Failsafe fanzine:
3rd party were a Cumbrian band, I used to see the singer at gigs around 1982/3, the last being Cock Sparrer in 1983 - I have spent two decades asking people what happened to them, very Cumbrian old punk I encountered and all the local bands members from that area (Psycho Faction, Distortion, etc) and nobody has any info on them. It has been one of my hobbies - 'not tracking down 3rd Party'!
