I reckon being inspired by a band then stealing their name probably takes a hit to your total mana

"Named after the 1950's secret political action from Kenya, and inspired by a U.S. Hardcore act of the same name, Sheffield's Mau Maus formed after leaving school in late '79. "

thansk to Wikipedia

Oh true. I've been looking up UK 82 bands the last few days and wondered how this band fitted in. That explains it.

Named after a Brooklyn Puerto Rican 1950s street gang which in turn was named after after the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya (thanks Wikipedia).

Was appreciating One Way System - All Systems Go recently. Great, consistent album.

Jerusalem by one way system is one of the greatest punk anthems of all time. I spent about an hour last week reading the lyrics and drinking wine trying to fathom wtf it was on about. I finished the bottle of wine and I am still unsure of what it is about

They seem to be likening themselves to Jesus and then mocking their poser disciples.

I can appreciate that like we're gladly stuck in 1982 forever more.
