RantBox (it’s Foxie’s and it’s always slightly different but it just looks & sounds the same, ok ….. it is the same…these are my own views and not necessarily those of the band although they voted me leader to tell them what to do according to Gel, so you may remain mystified by it all……………..) So, you can read what we’re up to in the Newsbox without ever having to listen to my missives ever again to get the Bleeding News. Jolly Good. We are well into the summer now - and yes we have got one, “wow” – and we see there are 2 chants that have embedded themselves with the great British public. The first is “ohhh Jeremy Corbyn” because despite the bile of the Tories, right wing media, and some in his own Party (yes we know who you are and we will come knocking in due course) he did rather well in the General Election. We look forward to the next one very soon so we can finish those Tories off. They are on borrowed time thanks to their doom and gloom laden agenda and £1billion bung to a bunch of orange bigots north of the Irish border thanks to the recently found Tory ‘magic money tree’. A tree that we all knew existed, it was just hiding in the Caymans, and there’s at least another £300billion of it because that’s the sum of money the top rich have managed to save themselves since 2010 at the expense of the poor, vulnerable and ordinary men and women. Just ask survivors of the dreadful Grenfell fire what they think of Tory compassion. Or those in receipt of PIP, or on the wrong end of the bedroom tax. The list is endless. That’s why we have a new song called “Tory Attacks”. Oh yea, I recall now, the second chant is “la la la la la la la la la la, la la la la la la la”. That’s the Bleeders contribution to the intellectual debate around the hedonist rich not giving a shit and screwing you over in our new song called “The Pleasure Hive”. It’s quite a bit different to our normal fare and you actually have to listen to it very carefully, especially as I vill zay zis only vonce. Anyway, you’ll hear it a gig near you soon. Sing along with us, or just sing “Oh Jeremy Corbyn” we don’t really mind either way, they’re both cool. We also have a new song about the clusterf*ck that is Brexit, and about the architects in chief of it – Farage, Gove & Johnson. It’s a song that really hits the nail on the head about those 3 dimwits and how they have managed to take a whole nation for a ride without due scrutiny being applied. It’s aptly called “3 Wise Monkeys”. One day all will be there to see, clear as day, and it won’t be pretty what these idiots have been allowed to do to this country. On a lighter note, we have a new song called “Cool Cats” too, and it’s about a dude, well a cat actually, who learns to play the guitar and he rocks, so do his songs. But everyone keeps asking him why there is no fiddle in his band. Like the great songs don’t matter. Go figure. It’s coming to a dustbin bar near you pretty soon. Cheers, Foxie
NewsBox For those of you visiting this page for the first time, here is a jargon buster: 'Hearts Attack' means gigs 'Hearts Propaganda' means biog 'Hearts Noize' means music 'Hearts Pix n Mix' means photo/video Hearts Doshswap' means merchandise The rest are hopefully self-explanatory (-: Gigs Gigs are always being worked on and come in slowly because we’re rubbish at that sort of thing, so watch the GigBox, not GoggleBox, but the GigBox, or better still visit “Hearts Attack” which will tell you everything you need to know, apart from the meaning of life because you’ll find that in beer and chocolate. 2017 Plans It’s true, we have indeed started to turn our attention to a new album and are working on said new material for said new album in our Dudley studio (saying Gel’s back room didn’t sound so professional). The plan is to start recording later in 2017 with a planned mid 2018 release. Given everything that has happened since June 2016 and the political clusterf**k that is continuing and in recognition of ‘the 3 wise monkeys’ attitude of the Brexiteers, it seems appropriate that this album is a sign of the times. So, “Patriots & Partisans” it is. Website Yup, it was changed a bit and may again, who knows. In a kind of evolutionary way, not a revolutionary one. Revolution’s cost money and take a lot of planning in case you hadn’t guessed but we live in hope…………………….see you somewhere in 2017 and beyond. Peace & Love with the occasional necessary disturbance to keep things fresh. All the best, Foxie, Gel, Ewan, Stuart
