Barbed Wire Undergarments: Sharp Spoons


























Barbed Wire Undergarments (Ireland's equivalent of the Sex Pistols)
hit the scene in 1975 with their highly acclaimed debut album, Sharp
Spoons. Frontman Smithy O'Leary's lyrics spoke to a nation of
disillusioned youths through base-driven riffs of violence and unrest,
as illustrated in this excerpt from, "The I.R.A. Ain't Never Gonna Pay":

The I.R.A. ain't never gonna pay
for the bombs that they've been dropping
on the Protestants and Catholics
on the prison camps and parliament
and hijacked cars and homes --

This album features several full on live tracks as well as a stripped
down version of O'Leary's lyrically genius, "Gunmen and Ghettos."

A must have for any record collector.
