ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE - Streets Of London / So What



Combo de Turnbridge Wells, Kent, formé en 1979 par Nick Culmer alias Animal (vocals), Magoo alias Chris Exall (guitar), Baggy alias Chris Elvy (bass) & Tony Show alias Bones (drums). ANL participe en 1981 à l'Apocalypse Tour au côté de Chron Gen, Anti-Pasti & Exploited et sort son premier single "Streets Of London / So What" en novembre, Winston Blake (bass) et PJ Djahanshah Aghssa alias Persian John (drums) ont remplacé Baggy et Bones. Une vigoureuse reprise de "Streets Of London" du folksinger Ralph McTell de 69 et le plat de résistance en face B: l'incontournable "So What" qui atteint la 48ème place des charts, l'obscénité créé un tollé et bien évidemment les autorités s'en mêlent, les stocks sont saisis et Scotland Yard donne injonction aux détenteurs du single de le ramener pour éviter d'éventuelles poursuites et incite même les parents à s'en emparer...Punk hymn...
"J'étais dans une bande de bikers appelée The Chosen Few, Magoo n'en faisait pas partie mais c'était mon pote depuis que nous avions dix ans. On conduisait des Harleys et écoutait du punk rock. Nous étions branchés Sex Pistols et Damned, mais les bikers étaient branchés Stranglers et les trucs dans le genre".(Animal)



So fucking what!
Well I've been to Hastings
And I've been to Brighton
I've been to Eastbourne too
So what, so what
Well I've been here
And I've been there
And I've been every fucking where
So what, so what
So what, so what you boring little cunt
Well who cares, who cares what you do
Who cares, who cares about you
You, you, you
Well I've sucked sweets
And I've sucked rock
And I've even sucked an old man's cock
So what, so what
Well I've fucked a sheep
And I've fucked a goat
I've had my cock right down its throat
So what, so what
So what, so what you boring little cunt
Well who cares, who cares what you do
Who cares, who cares about you
You, you, you, you
Well I've drunk that
And I've drunk this
And I've spewed up on a pint of piss
So what, so what
And I've had scag
I've had speed
I've jacked up until I bleed
So what, so what
So what, so what you boring little cunt
Well who cares, who cares what you do
Who cares, who cares about you
You, you, you, you
Well I've had crabs
And I've had lice
And I've had the pox and that ain't nice
So what, so what
Well I've fucked this
And I've fucked that
And I've even fucked a schoolgirl's crack
So what, so what
So what, so what you boring little cunt
Who cares, who cares about you
Who cares, who cares about you
You, you, you, you....
