"Lets not talk of love and flowers / and things that don't explode...."
The year 1973. Britain was under threat of an IRA bombing campaign. Proto-Punkers (not that anyone knew it at the time, and in true punk Stalinist revisionism it would be many years before people like John Lydon admitted what a hugh influence the band had on him) HAWKWIND released a single; Urban Guerrilla, which was subsequently banned by the BBC and withdrawn by the band. The year 2008. Britain is perceived by some to be under threat from Muslim extremists, and those vital and relevant as ever Rock’n’Rollers PRIMAL SCREAM have just released their take on Urban Guerrilla as a freebie download, (available here!) It rocks like a suicide bomber in the public gallery of The Houses of Parliament!
