Eat The Evidence – Tories Go To Waitrose

Posted: June 8, 2017 in Alternative, Music, Punk, Rock, Ska

Later today I will go to the Polling Station to cast my vote. After the EU Referendum and the Trump debacle I go pretty much without hope or expectation but more in despair and defiance and the grim knowledge we probably have five more years of selfish, small-minded, jingoistic bullshit to lap up whilst services close, people get poorer and those that voted for Brexit insist that it is still better than it would have been…

At least I will have Eat The Evidence’s wonderful Tories Go To Waitrose playing in my earbuds as I place my cross on the paper. A wonderfully irreverent depiction of the bourgeois shopping habits of those who’ve decimated the country’s public services, it is a hilarious punk-rock takedown of the toffs at the top, delivered via propulsive skank and overdriven amphetamine pop. The track comes from the band’s upcoming album, Sex, Drugs, & Wishy-Washy Politics, produced by Sam Duckworth, aka Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

Anyway, it reminds me of the good old days when protest songs could become vital terrace chants and people cared about each other…
