Foxie's Rant Box Yea, ok, it’s usually always the same……..mostly…. First - an announcement from our sponsors - us - our latest album “The Rules of Division” is just ace. Go buy it, we need to repay the loans. It’s nearly Spring and we should all be bouncing like new born lambs but whether we are depends on your take of what’s going on really. More on that later. As bouncing lambs, we’ve done a few gigs so far, all great, we even had our first Bleeding Conga going off, not us but you lot, thanks for that, you can find it on our Facebook page. We are still writing new songs, some of you might be surprised when you hear them as they put us in a different light to the last album. Reflective with new sounds going on. I think they call it ‘electric eclectic’. We have even taken a look at a couple of older ones we never got round to recording too, and have reworked them so we’ll see how they shakedown at gigs. Look out for them. We’ve got tunes about those ‘talking heads’ who spout bollox in the media, messed up people who try to ‘burn’ your brain up, Gel’s act of heroics with the ‘girl on the bridge’, stuff about how we’re all gonna take down the Tories in ‘nemesis’, and our current fave about illicit (also a great IPA by the way) liquor running in the 1930’s ‘bootlegger’. As a special treat, we are planning to live-stream the new songs from our rehearsal room to Facebook. We are working on a date, so all of you who want to listen to the new stuff or tell us to come play near you - we’re going to play to you in the comfort of your own living room, bedroom, bathroom or wherever else it is you do that internet thing. If you actually want us to play in your living room for real, that might be interesting, ask us, we’ll think about it. In a not so bouncy spring lambs way, just when it seems the Tories couldn’t possibly bollox up Brexit any more, up they pop with another way of doing so. By the time this goes out we could be heading for what I predicted back in January – an Article 50 extension because of their bungling on a supreme scale in a shitshow of unparalleled incompetence in a series of events where they have systematically refused to engage in a cross party way to resolve the impasse - so we’ll find ourselves watching Parliament vote for the 3rd or 4th time on May’s crappy deal whilst the rest of us only got to vote once. Then we have Tory MP’s actually likening this to World War 2 defeating tyranny and frankly obscenely shitting all over the memory of those who fought in the war like my granddad and many of his mates who died fighting for a better future. A future that the Tory referendum to fix Tory infighting has well and truly flushed down the toilet for the youth of the UK. Bravo. That’s why we are playing a ‘Bollox to Brexit gig on 29th March. It’s also why we want a general election, a change of Government, and ultimately a final say on whatever deal is reached with an option to remain. You can’t buck democracy by having more democracy. That said, the likes of Chuka Ummuna and his austerity loving EU buddies and Tory mates can fuck right off too. Any remain has to include reform, if we ever get a say on it. We simply cannot carry on the way we did before June 2016, or have since, in what is a neo-liberal freakshow of wealth accumulation by the 1% with Rees-Mogg and his mates taking the piss by earning £billions from shorting the markets and having their own cake and eating it. Proper change can’t come soon enough. There you have it. That’s my rant. End of. Enjoy a Bleeders gig soon, at least you know you can dance to the sound of our revolution.
