white riot

Extract from a private correspondence to an American friend addressing post election hangover:

\”Our own political reality here in the UK is so mired in bland inanity that one is entirely unable to differentiate incompetence from the genuine potential for evil. We are in an economic and social limbo bordering on clinical depression...

Released on March 18th, 1977. Written by Strummer & Jones; produced by Mickey Foote.
