Review

January, 12th 2017
We think that this piece would sound better if it hasn’t had such distinct echo – this is simply superfluous. Yes, its existence recalls the reggae tunes, but it is post-punk and punk rock, so they may sound as they want because nothing will be accepted from words that you say to punks. If you are not an admirer of such genre, there is a big chance that you will get bored already after 1 minute or 90 seconds. But after the 3rd minute you understand how much they influenced you and even stay tuned to this melody. Especially when you read the lyrics – they are full of words about Jamaica.

(White Man) in Hammersmith Palais Song Lyrics


Midnight to six man
For the first time from Jamaica
Dillinger and Leroy Smart
Delroy Wilson, your cool operator
Ken Boothe for UK pop reggae
With backing bands sound systems
And if they've got anything to say
There's many black ears here to listen
But it was Four Tops all night with encores from stage right
Charging from the bass knives to the treble
But onstage they ain't got no roots rock rebel
Onstage they ain't got no roots rock rebel
Dress back jump back, this is a bluebeat attack
'Cause it won't get you anywhere
Fooling with the guns
The British Army is waiting out there
An' it weighs fifteen hundred tons
White youth, black youth
Better find another solution
Why not phone up Robin Hood
And ask him for some wealth distribution
Punk rockers in the UK
They won't notice anyway
They're all too busy fighting
For a good place under the lighting
The new groups are not concerned
With what there is to be learned
They got Burton suits, ha, you think it's funny
Turning rebellion into money
All over people changing their votes
Along with their overcoats
If Adolf Hitler flew in today
They'd send a limousine anyway
I'm the all night drug-prowling wolf
Who looks so sick in the sun
I'm the white man in the Palais
Just lookin' for fun
I'm only
Looking for fun
I'm only
Looking for fun
