London Stoke Newington Ryan's Bar
February 11th 2010
Hailing from Dorking, this new face hair lovin' three-piece consists of members of Killing Pablo, QC, Dinkle and Serf Combat. With a raucous folk punk sound and intelligent social/political lyrics, they're passionate and fun. This song is about the long history of war and invasion in Afghanistan (looking back to 1841 forwards), with the closing line of "because there's no lessons learnt, but the game still goes on." Plus, they have Fun Alf (Jedward's Uncle?) on drums/vocals and on their t-shirts. Nice.
This song is from the band's split with the acoustic folk punk known as cynics (aka the delightful Giles), with three songs from cynics and four from WEGROWBEARDS. It's out now through Boofrod or you can get the split CD from the bands.
