Album Diaries 8

Session 2 all done and dusted. Worth the wait. It's starting to sound like an album now. Fair amount to do but a leap forward nonetheless. By the time the next session comes around we might be living in a country with a dominating Tory majority that wants to bring back cruelty as a sport for those with the means and the will to fight their base instincts to feel compassion for people worse off than them for 5 years. Can't see them being stopped again in 5 years if we can't stop them now.

Album Diaries 7

Back in the studio for the next session of this album. Guitars were recorded last time and now it's Laurence and Dan's turn to lay down the bass and drums. Going well so far. Half way done after day one. Snap election. Will the British people vote to destroy their public services and for posh weirdos to set dogs on foxes whilst wearing some fucking red jacket and blood smeared on their forehead blowing a little horn and so on? The results are in on my birthday. What an unwelcome coincidence. #TACTICAL2017

Album Diaries 6

When we march we are marching because we choose to. We’re marching for the people that we care about and the issues that affect them but it’s not out of the question to think of a time when our marching is an order to be carried out or the consequences faced. It’s not without precedent. In the first world war our ancestors were commanded out of relative safety to pursue their enemies through a wall of gunfire. Human beings used as non conventional weapons to demoralise the enemy in a suicidal charge that would inevitably claim their lives with little gains made. There was a sense of honour but it was futile. And it was an order. To march to your death. A protest is so much more gratifying. Your own banner with whatever you want it to say. If you want to stop then you stop. Take a photo of the crowds. Share it with your friends on social media. Everyone is there to show their support for each other. Everybody is free to do and say as they please. And nobody dies.

Tear this down

Who says we need foreigners at all? Lets just make the whole world outside of England a resort for us to go and get drunk and have fun in the sun and party until it goes down. Seriously. The British passport will be the only one that works and no one else will be allowed to leave their country except for us. We'll go and visit them to laugh at their stupid accents and their even stupider languages while they serve us cheap food and drink and if they answer back we'll smash the fucking place up. There'll only be one country and we'll own it. And we'll own their land and they'll work for free growing and harvesting our fruits and vegetables because fuck them and their mystical intimidating traditions and their fundamentalist cultures we like football and women and fighting and beer and everything else can sling it's hook. Not just Britain for the British Britain for the whole world forever empire 2.0 Brexit send them all back who's with me?
