Since the last year-plus saw the return (in a big way) of early ’80’s British post-punk legends The Pop Group, it’s only fitting that more long-lost pieces of their puzzle be unearthed and restored for all to hear and see.  Along with the first-time reissue of their 1980 album For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder, the video for the single “We Are All Prostitutes” is now available and you can see it right here on Popdose.
