Watching the Burglars (Single)
The Victorian English Gentlemen’s Club
Despite the expected Elvis Costello references, Watching the Burglars is more Adam Ant channelling British Sea Power.
The track steams along at a relentless pace without really going anywhere - quite a trick. Polish Man seems to be Squeeze on crack with a Lydon-lite vocal, apparently making some sort of observation on the UK’s reliance on Polish labour and its propensity for random acts of extreme violence. Been reading too many newspapers, clearly.
