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.

This was very Limey-centric. Who the hell are Marti Pellow, Carol Decker and Green Gartside?

Green Gartside is from Scritti Politti. The others are people who did O levels with Heston.

Early SP was a different beast than the version that charted in N.A. Not a real fan of them either way, but they were once in that sparser post punk vein.

I thought Scritti Politti were a pretty decent pop band. The Sweetest Girl, Absolute and The Word Girl are nice tunes.

Are Scritti Politti anything like Game Theory or Japan?
