Mick Jones to Tony Parsons: "I predict you'll be a turncoat cock".

Saw this in the comments section. I believe it, even if it isn't true. Mick could always spot 'em a mile away.

A Strummservation: Joe loved to write song titles that included genres the song wasn't really a part of.

Jimmy Jazz: not a jazz song
Afro-Cuban Be-Bop: Despite the presence of bongos, definitely not Afro-Cuban Be-Bop.
Punk Rock Blues: Neither Punk Rock nor Blues.

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Joking aside, it is a shitty cod-funk not a boogie song.

Dirty Punk sounds neither dirty nor particular punk.

I will say at least that's arguably a funk song. A terrible one, mind you...

An observation: it just occurred to me how similar BAD's Harrow Road is to Shouting Street thematically/vibe-wise.
