Nuclear Device (The Wizard of Aus) - The Stranglers

-
Legbamel Not-Pop

This one's for Polybore, creator of lovely promotional videos and source of many musical suggestions. Today he reminded me of The Stranglers, which of course got me listening to music from their 70s and 80s catalog. I'd completely forgotten about Nuclear Devices, which made me fondly recall the days when we were all convinced that The Reds were going to nuke us in our sleep one night, also known as The Cold War. Looking back, I see how much propaganda and hysteria fed into a "conflict" that was pure politics and very little ideology. But that doesn't lessen the awesomeness of this song.
