Out On Blue Six : The Boomtown Rats


"I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day", so said 16 year old Brenda Spencer after firing at children in a school playground killing two adults, injuring eight children and one police officer at Grover Cleveland Elementary School, San Diego on 29th January, 1979. 

Bommtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof was giving an interview at WRAS, a campus radio station at Georgia State University when the news of her attack reached the telex machine by the DJ's side, inspiring him to write the song.
