Philip Hensher: Sorry need not be the hardest word

To apologise is to divide yourself, momentarily, in two. There is the person who has offended; and there is the person with a moral attitude, who recognises the wrong of the statement or act committed. It is not an easy act to perform, and has to be taught. Small children have to be trained to understand not just that hitting their smaller sibling was wrong, but that it is important to acknowledge that wrongness, and to state it. A person who never learns to divide themselves in this way has some fundamental incapacity.

Formed by the bassist and songwriter Glen Matlock after he was edged out of the Sex Pistols in February 1977, the new wave band Rich Kids played a potent brand of power pop reminiscent of the Sixties British groups The Who and the Small Faces, and predated the US skinny-tie contingent of The Knack and The Cars.
