White Man in Hammersmith Palais

My favourite single of all time was released in this week in 1978.  It was perfect because it introduced a whole generation of white punk kids  – like 17-year-old me, in faraway suburban Calgary, Alberta – to a whole generation of reggae and dub artists.

And, on this sad and terrible day, it reminds us that the struggle to eliminate racism is never truly over.  Here’s Joe and his band.
