Recorded live at the Secret Policeman's Ball benefit concert for Amnesty International, Her Majestys Theatre, London, 30 June 1979.

The particular venom of the version, and the inclusion of the verse about Peter Wells, are due to Amnesty's refusal to support gay prisoners.

In other parts of the world, and even in the UK only 12 years earlier, people of Tom's sexuality were imprisoned.

Amnesty now actively supports the human rights of LGBT people.
