Third World War interview in Friends (January 1971)


Friends #22 interview with Terry Stamp and Jim Avery: ‘this is class resentment, class rage, class anguish . . . The Third World War is a London group virulent with London resentment’. It’s Hammersmith v Knightsbridge, says Avery. Their ambition is to stir things up, they don’t expect to sell, but they do want to influence the next generation: ‘young musicians who haven’t got anywhere, and who are not even musicians, and who are going to to say “You are just saying what we want to say.”’ And all said while playing Monopoly.
