They were the punk kids who slipped through the upstairs window at night with a bottle of booze and a pack of cigarettes. Jagger’s lyrics are a stinging evocation of on-the-skids New York City in the late ‘70s (“My brain’s been battered/Splattered all over Manhattan”), and it’s all conveyed with blasé insouciance.
