Put some fire into their wretched lives



Surely a candidate for the first British punk record. But is it a reactionary mocking of the progressive aspirations of the youth? Or a working class attack on middle class self-righteousness? Whichever, it would be another seven years before another record could match it in the depth of its contempt.

It's a great record either way. I've always loved the idea of Matt Monro hallenging 'ostrich notions'.

Thanks U-W. It's always surprised me that the drum'n'bass crowd overlooked the drum breaks on this record.

Love your blog btw.
