007 (Shanty Town) - Desmond Dekker

Desmond Dekker performs his 19 and 67 hit in 2004, two years before the King of Ska's death at age 63.

It's a bit bemusing watching aging white mods rocking to a song celebrating rude boy gangsters with lyrics like, "them a loot, them a shoot, them a wail, at Shanty Town." But, what the hey, radical chic crosses both sides of the Atlantic.
