The Fleas - The Phone Call
A couple of years ago I posted Heartbreaker, a new song by a 3 piece UK band I'd stumbled across called The Fleas (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-fleas-heart-breaker.html). They returned earlier this month with an album titled Flea In Your Ear, it's on the always reliable Grow Your Own Records (the diy label run by Anthrax UK) and you can order the limited edition transparent pink 10" vinyl or the digital version here : https://anthraxuk.bandcamp.com/album/the-fleas-a-flea-in-your-ear
Fronted by Emily Condon (vocals/guitar/uke/sax) they give off "raw, angry punk vibes" and are sure to go dow a storm with anyone who reads this blog. The album is 11 tracks of boisterous, catchy punk tunage. Song titles include the impressively titled Shut Up And Have A Wank and the critique of the current fashion for the mainstream to value style over substance when it comes to music (Popstar).

This is the 2nd track on the album, it's about all those time wasting nusiance calls we all have to put up with from time to time. The Phone Call...
