about

"A rare beast, melodic pop with bite! ...they share Paul Heaton’s knack for sneaking barbed social commentary into the most innocent sounding of melodies"
(Vive Le Rock)

"The band champion the poor and downtrodden in their lyrics... it's a shame more bands aren't telling tales of what it means to live in the UK in 2010"
(Sounds XP)

"Jangly guitars with ascerbic political lyrics. Its' refreshing to hear such venom in C86 clothing"
(Sheffield Phonographic Corporation)

"Lilting Americana lite... a musical landscape packed with everyman douchebags content to witter on about real life's tedium"
(Venue Magazine)

"A twisted take on guitar-pop, mixing jangly guitars with a hybrid of alt-country, dark brooding lyrics and no-frills charm - their roots are in 'C86' era indie-pop having previously founded 80's twee-pop veterans The Haywains"
(Moles Bands)

Track Name: Greedy Bastards, Save Your Souls!
Greedy Bastards, Save Your Souls!

Lord Rothermere, has it not occurred to you
we may not want to be indoctrinated fools
patronising your disciples so dumb
but why should we succumb
to Tory voting scum?
who took the heart and soul
from a nation on the dole
you say that we'd be better
with the country in your hands
we don't think so!
decent people don't think so!

Greedy bastards, save your souls!
from the safety of your cosy country homes
Tories in red ties...
Tories in blue ties...
Tories in yellow ties...
it’s all the same disguise!

You took the heart and soul
from a nation on the dole
you say that we'd be better
with the country in your hands
we don't think so!
decent people know
you'll hang the redskins from the trees
with freedom and impunity
you'll close the borders, lock the doors
protect the empire, guard the shores
watch the blackshirts clench their fists
to stop the oiks and the communists
ignorance and hate prevails
invented by the Daily Mail

(Lyrics by Paul Towler)
