Which is too bad because it's a good track from a band that didn't get the recognition it deserved in the 80's. I've always liked Terry Hall's work. It's always had a good bite to it, lyrically and musically. Case in point - this was the first track I was thinking of putting up when I decided to do Nights At The Roundtable, and I hadn't played this song in at least 10 years.
