Maggie Thatcher's Rotting Corpse - Maggie Thatcher's Rotting Corpse
"Thatcher may have been cremated, but the decaying flesh of her ideology continues to wreak havoc on our communities like a big fascist zombie. We mix metaphores and contradict ourselves freely, so committed are we to the accurate satirising of Tory policy that all is fair game in the persuit of our political agenda"
Thus goes the manifesto of mask wearing rabble rousers Maggie Thatcher's Rotting Corpse.
They're from Leeds, they're influenced by Aneurin Bevan, Billy Bragg, The Exploited, Chumbawamba etc and they're no doubt going to cop a certain amount of flack from the po-faced (they've already received threats of legal action and physical violence) . The rest of us can enjoy some catchy singalongs and Tory baiting pisstakes. In the words of Kenny Everett character Cupid Stunt, it's all done in the best possible taste.....
Don't think their questionable taste stops at their band name and songs though, just check out their line up.... Freddy Rose Thatcher (vocals), Gideon "Glitter" Gadd (lead guitar), Iain Duncan Watkins (rhythm guitar), Fritz L. Hunt (bass) and Boris Brady (drums). They recently released a Self Titled ep and you can find it on Bunnysnot Records' Bandcamp page.... https://bunnysnotrecords.bandcamp.com/album/maggie-thatchers-rotting-corpse

"Once upon a time in Albion, there was a witch who cast a spell of poverty and greed...."
This is their theme tune, Maggie Thatcher's Rotting Corpse....
