Unpolished Monkey Business

Ian Brown deigns to let us know his views on war.

So what the fuck is this UK
Gunnin' with this US of A
In Iraq and Iran and in Afghanistan . . .

Does not a day go by
Without the Israeli Air Force
Fail to drop its bombs from the sky? . . .

How many mothers to cry?
How many sons have to die?
How many missions left to fly over Palestine?

Sounds like this guy has a rival.

Mind you, reviewer Dave Simpson says:

When I was a kid, I learned more about politics from records by bands like the Gang of Four and the Clash than I ever did in school or college, and Brown's opus brings that feeling back.

Hmm. Thanks, Dave. Thought so.

And on the anniversary of Elvis kicking the bucket as well (and Marc Bolan).

Utter fucking disgrace.
