Geza X and the Mommymen - I Hate Punks

An upbeat song today, that sounds a little like the early Stranglers (with the addition of X Ray Spex's Laura Logic on sax), by the guy who produced a string of punk classics including Holiday In Cambodia, Lexicon Devil, John Wayne Was A Nazi and Six Pack. Born in 1952 to Hungarian parents, Geza Gadeon shortened his name to Geza X (as a tribute to Malcolm X) and as well as becoming an influential producer also played with seminal bands The Bags and The Deadbeats. The song I'm posting today is by his own band, Geza X And The Mommymen. They only released one album, 1981's You Goddamn Kids! which featured this diatribe against the commercialisation of the punk rock scene. This is I Hate Punks.....
