In 1981, while out on tour, Jerry Dammers and the band all saw what was happening to the U.K. There were Riots everywhere (35 in all), as the economy got worse and worse and more and more people lost their jobs. It felt like the World they had all grown up in was dying. There had to be a way to capture the depression, despair and Frustration in a song. In 2011, Dammers said: "The overall sense I wanted to convey was impending doom." With Producer John Collins, they captured the moment, in a recording that somehow manages to be both frightening and fun! The song was ten weeks in the UK Top 40 and three weeks in the Number One spot. Later that year, three leading music publications named it "UK Top Single of the Year". The whole thing is Brilliant and if you've never heard it before, give it a listen - I think you'll be impressed!!!

This song was ringing in my ears for hours days before I purchased it. I needed to find the right reverberation, tonality,and edgy,crackly sounds I remembered from childhood. When I found this option...I panicked because I was unaware that it was so readily available. In short, I am completely stoked I have it now! Woot woot.

Love this song, especially the extended mix with the trombone solo. Great atmosphere. The production really makes you feel like you're there with the band. A true classic.

I have loved this Song since I first saw the Music Video on MTV in the 80's, if you like SKA you will not be disapointed, especially since this is the longer Version.
