Comedian Alexi Sayle has a distinct take on life. He’s one of the most poetic when it comes to language, well of a sort.
This insistent song came out in 1982 and when re-released in 1984 even bothered the top twenty. The tightly suited Alexi was gigging with plenty of bands and Ranters in support of many good causes, including the miners.
There’s a delightfully filthy version of the song, Part IV, that came out as a 12″. Sayle was doing a character called Mr Sweary, and sweary he was.
