Motortown

A theme continues...



The Kane Gang
Motortown
1987

YouTube comment: "A searing indictment of the delusion that the loss of manufacturing in the 1980's was acceptable. They 'work for pennies in Motortown', a deunionised low wage economy left people to the mercy of the unregulated market. From that you get inequality and social breakdown. The Kane Gang were´╗┐ ahead of their time in nailing the folly of laying to waste whole communities in the north east and elsewhere. A good pop tune with a lesson even more urgent in 2009."
