“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

I love the King Blues! The Streets are Ours, Let's Hang the Landlord are other contenders. It's not a political or protest anthem, but Underneath this Lamppost Light is such an evocative, fragile and genuine song:
"The smell of kebab meat and sausage in batter will always remind me of you, In the chip shop, at the end of the night, making sure I get some food.
So kiss me underneath this Lamppost light. I know it smells of p!ss but you look beautiful tonight!"
All set to lush strings. It's a song that is beautiful in its honesty.

I've actually seen um myself once in Cambridge corn exchange in the late 80.s-early 90,s. Was dragged there by friends who said they we're s bit like new model army.... Was a good night
A lot of people have said that, but I've never listened to NMA... I probably should.
The Levs still tour regularly - saw them at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall and the Palladium in London, both of which were awesome, and then again at The Apex in BSE in February this year before the world went mad.
Also had tickets for them at UEA in March and in Nottingham in December, but they've both been re-arranged to within a few days of each other in December 2021, so I will now see them twice in four days next December, including one on my birthday.
