Great British Band: Dire Straits

Published: 31st Jul, 2009

Dire Straits, Sultans of Swing

It’s easy to forget that Dire Straits were a good band. Or at least, so says great friend of the site Matt. Unfortunately, we’ve never quite got past the weird computer workmen video, with the song lyric that we forever misheard as “chips for free”. Free chips? Did you hear that – free chips? Excellent! Oh, and we love that joke about Dire Straits forming a band with Chris Rea – they’re going to called it… Chris Straits. And, actually, on listening to the above track, they were pretty bloody good. A Great British Band after all. Yay!
