THIRD WORLD WAR - A Little Bit Of Urban Rock / Working Class Man (Polydor 1971)
This is a classic! An incendiary record by the legendary Third World War, a proto-punk-working-class band formed in London in 1970 by manager/producer John Fenton with Terry Stamp and Jim Avery.
Their two albums and two singles released between 1970 and 1972 are mainly characterized by Terry Stamp’s brutal vocals, their socio-political lyrics and aggressive guitar riffs. This is the German issue of their second single "Little Bit Of Urban Rock". Enjoy!
