About this deal

The B-side is a cover of Bob Dylan's " I Shall Be Released" which Robinson performed many times, including as part of the supergroup "The Secret Police" at The Secret Policeman's Ball in 1979. singing solutions to entertainment venues, bars, pubs and anywhere else people want to sing together!

Tim Cooper has written for most national newspapers and many magazines on every subject from politics to pop culture. VG/EX means that the item's sleeve is in Very Good condition and the disc is in Excellent condition. There’s nothing very punky about their first single either, but its stomping beat and shout-along chorus made it a hit. I think all of this goes on and persists because actual equality means a lot of folks who have outrageous stuff will have to give some of it up. The tie into the gay liberation movement comes to those enlightened with a familiarity of the popular gay lib chant “2,4,6,8, Gay is twice as good as straight… 3,5,7,9, Lesbians are mighty fine”.

So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. Robert Christgau described it as an "instant hit" [5] whilst David Quantick described the song as "somewhere between a terrace chant (or a demo marching song) and a Brucie Springsteen number". Lots of people in the punk community hated poor Tom because He was for gay rights, with songs like "Glad To Be Gay".

Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave. After Sam Ryder’s Space Man turned the page on two decades of Eurovision misery for the UK in 2022, this year’s representative Mae Muller is bidding to go one better this time around with her electropop gem I Wrote A Song. Tom Robinson "2-4-6-8 Motorway" at Glastonbury 2016 | "2-4-6-8 Motorway" 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR takes place October 2017, performing Power In The Darkness album in full. There was no Tom Robinson Band at the time - just the name and a series of pub gigs I’d blagged for the coming weeks.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Joined by singer and double-bassist Miranda Sykes in 2004, and percussionist Cormac Byrne in 2019, Show of Hands continue to perform as a duo as well as in the four-piece band format. The verse lyric came from having done cheap gigs around the country with my previous band Cafe Society, and driving back through the night from places like Scarborough and Rotherham.
