Studio single Highwire, with its anti-Iraq War stance, incurred the wrath of, amongst others, British politicians and the BBC. The first Iraq War that is, when George Bush Senior was let into the White House.
A Conservative member of Parliament called it appalling in a time of war and the BBC added it to a list of songs it “discouraged” its DJs from playing.
There was, surprisingly, little backlash in America.
Mick Jagger told the London Times newspaper: “Pop music should address a broad range of subjects > not just sex and cars”.
Highwire and another studio track Sex Drive are tucked at the end of 1991 live album Flashpoint.
