Mark Stewart – The Pop Group/The Maffia

We Are All Prostitutes

Welcome to Liberty City

As The Veneer of Democracy Starts To Fade.   This album hit me hard growing up in Toronto.  I had a c90 with Veneer on one side, and Public Enemy’s first album on the other.  Yeah, that’s right, heavier as Henry VIII’s food bill.  Politically and  musically, it’s brutal, informative, it demands your attention, cuts a swath through mediocracy with a rusty but funky knife.

Yesterday, Moody Boy Thorpe called me to tell me how good The Pop Group show on Sunday was.
