Some bubbles appeared on the surface of the swamp.
Generally,things have been better but I’m back with this hard hitting, face punching , bit of controversy from Ian Dury from the surprisingly recent 1981 (His first outing without the Blockheads). I think the song was instantly banned by the BBC.
Anyways it’s funky and has a strong message. Chaz Jankel had emerged as the musical brains to promote Dury’s message about disability.
The B-side involves Sly and Robbie maximizing the funk value helped by the mixing skills of Steven Stanley (Tom Tom Club) extending it and dubbing it out.
If offended please don’t listen!
