History : Reference from Wikipedia 

The Cocksure Lads were dreamed up by Murray Foster and Mike Ford, two former members of the Canadian band Moxy Früvous in the late 1990s. Foster also plays bass in the band Great Big Sea.  Foster and Ford shared a love of early sixties Britpop and began writing songs in that genre for their own amusement. One song, “That’s Any Good,” was performed several times by Moxy Früvous.  As more and more of these British Invasion style tunes came to life, they began to develop a backstory to the band that had been named “The Cocksure Lads” by their friend Danny Ameri.
