Personal Quote:

It helped that you had someone who was the very embodiment of evil in power. You have to remember that it was an incredibly politicised era. People were arguing in pubs about monetarism, inflation and unemployment. Everything became political. Not mentioning Thatcher, in a way, was as political as singing about her! See more »


Dammers publicly opposed Paul Simon's decision to record his album Graceland in Apartheid South Africa in the 1980s. When Simon played the first of six nights at London's Royal Albert Hall on April 7 1987, Dammers joined Paul Weller and Billy Bragg in protesting outside and delivered a letter demanding that Simon give a "complete and heartfelt apology to the UN General Assembly".
