You caused me to look up the lyrics, I was surprised by not only the drug prowling wolf but by most of them. It was very different in my head. ......But it was Four Tops all night with encores from stage right

It's an autobiographical song. Strummer did go to the gig at the Palais with some others and was disillusioned with the performances... rather than me type it all... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%28White_Man%29_In_Hammersmith_Palais :)

@sallyshalam I went on an anti nazi march back in the day. Saw them a few times live... still my favourite band.

@sallyshalam I also went on a 'ban the bomb' march around the same time... must be 1980...ish

One of the songs that if anyone asked me to name my ten all time favourites,would definitely be in. To be honest I think I have six that are dead certs to be named in that ten.

I've just accidentally deleted your comment @BertrandRustles despite it being spot on. Big thumbs... or something. Sorry.

@markhyson I will never forgive you. That was meant to go in the archive FOREVER.
