The Pop Group reissue their vital post-punk statement We Are All Prostitutes both digitally and as a limited edition coloured 7” packaged in its original sleeve artwork. Flipside Amnesty International Report is a similarly audacious dispatch in which the torture of Irish prisoners by the British Army is directly quoted from Amnesty literature.
A timeless nerve-obliterating insurrection, We Are All Prostitutes was released in 1979 to a climate of political unrest. On hearing it for the first time Nick Cave commented, “It’s one of those moments when the cogs of your mind shift and your life is going to irreversibly change forever.” It was “everything that I thought rock & roll should have…it was violent, paranoid music for a violent, paranoid time.”
A great demonstration of We Are All Prostitutes’ enduring relevance was its recent pick for The Washington Post’s ‘Week In A Song’ feature when bribery and corruption were hot topics of the week.
