The album features a new version of their early 1980s, Grey Skies (Over Collingwood). Arguably this country’s greatest ever reggae song (since recorded by others, including Weddings Parties Anything), it's a Melbourne song, personally sentimental yet full of biting social commentary about changes to inner city life.
The album also features a new fiercely anti-war anthem, I Don’t Want To Fight Your War, an upbeat full on power-ska number. Referencing the folly/tragedy of the West’s invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, the song defiantly proclaims: “I don’t want to fight no more”.
Other tracks include Inner City Cool, a bohemian take on the smugness of many inner city hipsters and their ilk, Two Steps Back, a total reworking of their classic soul hit, and Teenage Zombie, a joyously fun ska dance number.
Since the early 80s this legendary band has produced a steady stream of classic songs and quality recordings, without the backing of a record company.
