About this deal

Comment: Tom Robinson Band - 2 4 6 8 Motorway - 7 Inch - UK Pressing - Emi - 1977 - EMI2715 - Four Prong Label Design B/W I Shall Be Released In Plain Sleeve - In Plain/Company Sleeve, Condition (Disc): /EX.

There was no Tom Robinson Band at the time - just the name and a series of pub gigs I’d blagged for the coming weeks.But front man Tom’s fiery left-wing politics, his status as a gay man who proclaimed his sexuality in song, and his campaigning work to help found Rock Against Racism made him a welcome fellow addition to the circuit. The song was the first single released by the Tom Robinson Band, who had formed in January 1977 and was signed to EMI in August 1977. This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. VG/EX means that the item's sleeve is in Very Good condition and the disc is in Excellent condition. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Robinson wrote the song between leaving Café Society in 1976 and forming the Tom Robinson Band the following year, at a time when he was performing with whichever friends were available on the night; thus, the song had to be simple enough to learn in a few minutes. Not to be confused with Davies’s song Lola, which proved that boys would sometimes be girls (and vice versa). Lots of people in the punk community hated poor Tom because He was for gay rights, with songs like "Glad To Be Gay".Robinson came up with the tune 'trying to work out the chords to Climax Blues Band's " Couldn't Get It Right"' which he could not really remember. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. singing solutions to entertainment venues, bars, pubs and anywhere else people want to sing together!
