The Rich Kids: Back With A Bullet

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 10 September 1977

COMING DOWN from the Harrow Road by bus, Steve New's getting the rise taken out of him by a bunch of kids because he's wearing carpet slippers ("It was pouring and me boots have got holes in 'em and I didn't want to get me feet wet"). The bravest of the kids comes over and screams into Steve's ear: "And we don't caaarre...!" That poor malchick just didn't understand the irony of his words.
