Keep Calm and Carry On
Musically nailing your colours to the mast of a given subject can be tricky – especially when all you really want to do is nail Nigel Farage’s genitals to a passing Eurostar – but, the fact is, we’re still angry. Really quite a bit.
It’s not that the Leave campaign lied and exploited people’s fears and prejudices; it’s not that many voters knew they were too ill-informed to make a reasonable choice and were simply happy to act on their prejudices; it’s not even that thousands of people opted to leave the EU a full day before bothering to Google what the EU actually was.
Actually, we’re lying, it’s all of those things … but what really gets on our norks and beats them viciously with stinging nettles is having smug Brexiters tell us to “get over it”; we lost, apparently, and we should just suck it up and stop whinging. Well, call us a couple of nitpickers but we think having our country wrapped in toilet paper and sent down the economic U-bend by people who, for the most part, did it because they “dahn’t like braahn peepul” is actually rather a good reason to persist in being jolly cross.
So, while the pound begins to be sold alongside phoney dog poo in joke shops across Europe have a scroll down the page and get yourself an MP3 that will hopefully give you a crumb of comfort that we’re with you in your seething, friend. And if you’re feeling particularly in the moment you could also download “Planned Obsolescence: The Topical E.P” which features this song along with four other fantastic tracks! And, of course, you’ll obviously then want to go and subscribe to our YouTube channel before you forget!
