Highly recommended by Strangeworld.

This slice of West London AGGRO is back in print for the first time since 1972! Remastered from the original tapes. We are thrilled to reissue one of our all-time favorite singles. It really should have been a double A-side. TERRY STAMP and JIM AVERY (ex-THE ATTACK, THUNDERCLAP NEWMAN) hold the distinction of forming probably the UK's first, for real, “aggro” band. THIRD WORLD WAR Formed in London at the turn of the '70s, Third World War released two proto-punk albums (Fly Records and Track Records) in the 1971 & 1972 respectively. Third World War featured an aggression unheard of at that time. With Terry Stamp’s explosive vocals, lyrics, chopper guitar style and Jim Avery’s West London, hardnut, two-fisted, riff and chord approach proved unbeatable (even forty plus years on). Their socio-political agenda and proto-punk guitar style prefigured the emergence of UK “working-class” punk bands by some five years. "Working Class Man" features The Rolling Stones' horn section with BOBBY KEYS and JIM PRICE.
