HIGSONS – Run me down / Put the punk back into funk

28 Jun

Higsons were a novelty band/act of British post /punk pop sound with a reggae identity trying more to make fun of the whole craze with this musical genre,after Police’s massive success.But also were political and carried the anarchic spirit of Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and Firesigh Theatre,making me considering them a serious group in the same theoritical vein with Crass and John Cooper Clarke.And what an adventourous single!
