Richard Harrow - You Can't Rob A Bank (1981)

 

We're pretty happy to have found a copy of this record in the Doug Wong Music archives. Sure, we've already posted the full LP these two tracks are from - but the great thing about singles is how they make you re-focus on specific tracks. And the title track on this Richard Harrow single is a pretty great number that is surprisingly still topical. Or maybe not surprisingly, depending on who you talk to. "You Can't Rob A Bank" is a great skewering of the world of financial services - like the title track from yesterday's single, this one also has a great power pop nugget hiding underneath the ricky-ticky drum machine that propels it along. And the b side ballad is also pretty decent.

Get robbed here!
