“Another wonderful Ray Lowry cartoon which again is completely in the spirit of City Fun in the way it brings together politics and music, jokingly comparing the factionalism of the counterculture with the internecine splits of the political left. Like City Fun, too, it's dry and pessimistically realist, but still retains a life-affirming hint of idealism; in response to the political sects bickering, one demo attendee turns to another and asks, "what's your favourite pop group?" thus reminding us of the power of music to bring people together.”
