Wrong Side Of The Road is a ground breaking 1981 Australian film, road movie, rock documentary, musical drama, it followed 2 days of life on the road for two Aboriginal rock/reggae bands which were largely unknown to mainstream Australia: No Fixed Address e Us Mob.
Its a great film it tackled the taboo subject of racism in Australia head on, a topic which one would say still is pretty taboo.
Each band gets a side each on the album, No fixed address later released their groundbreaking Ep "From My Eyes"

No fixed address
I am a black, black man
And I need to be recognised in this wretched world
For we are getting brainwashed
And the people forgetting about our rights
So all you black people,
You gotta fight for your rights
You gotta fight for your rights.
Thereʼs a lot of things that are trying to stop you
And thatʼs racism, and the cops
And the government which is buggered
But we have learnt within our soul, within our soul
And that is … the land controls you.
You donʼt control it
You donʼt control it
Fight for your rights,
Fight for your rights.

I am a black, black man
And I need to be recognised in this wretched world
For we are getting brainwashed
And the people forgetting about our rights
So … all you black people,
You gotta fight for your rights
Youʼve gotta fight for your rights,
Got to fight for your rights,
Fight for your rights ...
