Caps from Combat Rock contacted the site with the following;

"The exact recording dates are: Wednesday the 14th and Thursday the 15 of June
During the recording session Charlie told me that he would like some "french speaking language" in the chorus so , after reading Sir Harper's lyrics, I wrote quiclky "Allez descendez tous dans la rue" ... which means ; "All of you go down the street and get back what has been taken away from you"... and with Gilles (Charge 69 singer at the time)   we sang that in Mandala studio ... We also did the backing vocals on "Metro" ...What memories..."

Thanks for that Caps.
