The Lunatics (Have Taken Over the Asylum)’ by FUN BOY THREE
Fun Boy Three was a side project of 3 members of ska stars The Specials: Terry Hall,
Neville Staple and Lynval Golding. ‘The Lunatics’ was the first single, released in 1981,
from their self-titled debut LP. African beats, tribal drumming and chant-like vocals.
Pretty innovative back then. The track hit the UK’s Singles Top 20. Although it’s a song
from 1981 the title & lyrics are very relevant today, isn’t it Mister Donald Lunatic Trump?
