Liar Liar! Brand new single

The first new single from our forthcoming album is available on all the usual streaming platforms and online shops from Monday 20th December.

You can watch the lyric video right now:

Kick Out! The Newtown Neurotics Story LP Out Now!

Kick Out! is a 15 track round up of the first six singles taking in the years 1979 to 1984. The first two singles Hypocrite and When The Oil Runs Out were melodic nuggets released on our own No Wonder label. Both of these singles were written prior to the election of the Thatcher monster. The horror of this event changed what was the non-political writing style of Steve's lyrics into the other extreme, and so in June 1982 Kick Out The Tories was released on CNT records. Sadly 38 years later, the lyrics are most poignant and needed than ever. The band continued releasing single after single from the painfully personal to the politically pertinent, all done with intelligence and style. Also included is Andy Is A Corporatist / Mindless Version taken from the Son of Oi! compilation. The album comes with a 32 page booklet of archive - photos, reviews, interviews and more and was conceived to be released alongside the Documentary of the same name about the band's history.

Social Distancing videos

We recorded a couple of Social Distancing videos for use in virtual versions of a couple of events we were scheduled to perform at. Whilst our home recording set ups are all plugged in and functioning we're also demoing songs for a brand new album!

Kick Out Launch Postponed

Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, the launch of Kick Out - the Newtown Neurotics Story has been postponed. However on the night we should have been screening the film and performing in London, we took to Facebook to host a live event.

Featuring specially recorded performances from Swill (The Men They Couldn't Hang), Nigel Clark (Dodgy) and Attila the Stockbroker, teaser clips from the film, live Q&A with the film maker and a surprise guest calling by to chat, the full thing can be seen here:
