The most venomous version of King Is White I’d ever heard Jim sing…not as angry sounding in his delivery as some of the earlier versions and he drops the “take/taking no prisoners” line – which is a big shame…but in the second refrain of the chorus he adds a “hang ’em up / sling ’em up / fuck ’em up” line which is just…TOXIC!
Recorded for radio in Sydney…oops! Lucky we’re a nation of swearers and the station’s boss (most likely a head honcho at the ABC) probably never battered in eyelid.
Merry Christmas! 😈
