ONLY THE MEDIA WHORES CAN SAVE US NOW: ‘A DECADE OF DEFIANCE’ - A C. T. Herron Review

ONLY THE MEDIA WHORES CAN SAVE US NOW: ‘A DECADE OF DEFIANCE’ - A C. T. Herron Review

I have in my hands a compilation of songs from a band that are reflected perfectly in the cover design. A collage of politics and punk, brightly-coloured and eye-catching, quotes from legendary musicians like Strummer and Guthrie, but most strikingly, emblazoned across the front in large letters, is the idiom “Stop making stupid people famous”. Something I can absolutely agree with 100%, in a world of Jedwards and Biebers multiplying like bacteria on a yoghurt that’s been left out in the baking sun, we need a band like the Media Whores! I’m not saying kill all the stupid people, but let’s remove the warning labels and let the problem take care of itself.

JACKAL TRADES - ‘TRIP HAZARD ADVISOR’ - A Review In Four Books - C.T. Herron

Andy Martin produced arguably my fave track from Need The Characters, ‘I Am The Fear’, and he provides here a wheezy, strange, unique beat for a humorous conversation between ‘Jack’ and some hallucination named the Trip Hazard Advisor he encountered tripping out to a Pink Floyd film, ‘Schemedelica’. Quality quaalude interlude! https://www.facebook.com/andymartin90beats/
