The Boomtown Rats - Lookin' After No.1 album
Lookin' After N. Lyrics. The world owes me a living I've waited on this dole queue too long I've been standin' in the rain for fifteen minutes That's a quarter of an hour too long. I'll take all they can give me And then I'm gonna ask for more Cos the money's buried deep in the bank of England And I want the key to the vault.

Their first hit,"Lookin' Out After No. 1," is a stirring call to arms that as the first postpunk single added to the staid BBC playlist sets an appropriate standard of quality. Mary of The Fourth Form," is a leering schoolboy blues number: the LP cut pales next to the more aggressive single version. All well and good, but the band would literally explode with new ideas and a multitude of sonic styles with the next album and throughout the rest of their career. com For more ruminations on the Fresh New Sound Of Yesterday.

Lookin' After No. 1" is the first single by The Boomtown Rats. It appears on their first album The Boomtown Rats.

I've swallowed it now and trying to move on. However, I have been prompted to move too by Bobby Boomtown himself who has pushed me into a project with one of the Rats' old friends from Dublin who is going to make a 'history of the Rats' type documentary; so if any of you have old footage (super 8 etc), posters/flyers that can be copied and sent or rare. Back to gigs soon and we all on tip toes for the forthcoming album.
