This lot epitomise what is great about this country; as opposed to the small minded, Daily Mail bottom licking, Eton toff scum that are misruling us.

Oh well!  this is almost certainly the only song that name checks LIDL and POUNDLAND with a Newcastle hi-life afro beat (making this up now)

The Dead Kennedys

Steinski & the Mass Media put out this great number but could not release it comercially because C.B.S. were not overly happy with the use of Walter Cronkites voice. Luckly the NME put it out as a 33rpm 7 inch as a free cover mount . Yee Ha enjoy!

The motorcade sped on
