Up against the wall
Just whose side are you on? Look out. Listen. Can you hear it? Panic in the County Hall. Whitehall up against the wall. Sense of social injustice? There was a time when if you needed a cause supported Tom Robinson would be there for you. Predictably punk revisionism has been less than gracious about the role of the Tom Robinson Band. At best TRB brio and Kustow gusto has been damned with faint praise, but they took some thorny topics and weighty words into the heart of the charts and had the kids singin' along.
