Crass’s Banned from the Roxy features in a London soundtrack compiled by Young Turks record label owner Caius Pawson published online in The Guardian on 6 May. Says Pawson:
Crass – Banned from The Roxy
Sadly, The Roxy in Neal St doesn’t exist any more (it closed in 1978 and is now Speedo’s flagship store), but in its short lived history, it played host to some of London’s best punk bands (…and The Police). As you could probably have surmised, Crass wrote this classic song in response to being banned from the venue for being too drunk on stage. I can only imagine that night was as special as this song.
