Back in 1991, The Screaming Jets gave us "Fat Rich C--ts
"; an equally angry if not angrier song - though without the profanity - was born in 2009 in response to the world banking crash and the resulting scandalous bailouts on both sides of the Atlantic. This song was written about the same time about the same issues, though from a gentler perspective.
To his credit, this old codger plays for over four minutes, yet does not manage to find that

I still feel every bit as angry - "Nick and Rob are Conmen" springs, in part, from the same source.!'
