Music

The biggest surprise is that Brit dole proles Chelsea's two discs are at least as repeatedly playable as Dutch radicals the Ex's one. But would the Ex approve of "Right to Work," if Chelsea's pinnacle is indeed the anti-union workers' anthem it often seems? How about Chelsea's "Many Rivers to Cross" cover? It's Clash-worthily unclunky, albeit fairly straightforward—at least compared to the Ex's dub attempts or Killing Joke's ("$0.36") or ones by such ahead-of-their-time women as the Slits; New Age Steppers; Ja Ja Ja; or Rip, Rig and Panic. And if we're gonna talk punky reggae, let's just say the Clash had good reason to borrow "Armagideon Time" from Willi Williams. And he didn't stop there.
