Eddy Grant

So I'm not going to lie and say Eddy is crafting a particularly subtle reference to Apartheid in this song. Nor is his word-craft fantastic, with lines like "Weapons in the shape of guns." Nevertheless this is a tremendously fun song. Even more interestingly the album is actually quite good in my estimation. Good luck finding it. I have a cassette of it somewhere.
