Advice: Town Called Malice

The Jam: Town Called Malice


Paul Weller et al., give us some sound advice with a Supreme's Can't Hurry Love bass line as a backdrop. The Jam was one of my favorite bands in the 80's and they still are today. Why they never got a more solid following in the U.S. is one of the great mysteries of that whole period of music as far as I'm concerned.

This is Town Called Malice, off of their last LP, The Gift:

Better stop dreaming of the quiet life -
cos it's the one we'll never know
And quit running for that runaway bus -
cos those rosey days are few
And - stop apologising for the things you've never done,
Cos time is short and life is cruel -
but it's up to us to change
This town called malice.
