A song that's possibly as topical today as it's ever been.
Liverpool's Vile Assembly (https://www.facebook.com/TheVileAssembly) return to Just Some Punk Songs with a blistering attack on the wealth disparity between the haves and the have nots and the lengths that the rich will go to in order to keep the downtrodden underfoot. Vocalist Paul Mason is on top form as he wails "You've got to pay your subscriptions, treat it like an insurance payment, pay to the rich, before you can legally rob the poor." As I'm sure a certain Mr Sunak and his wife will attest, you don't have to break the law, you just have to know how to get around it. It's a rich man's world baby!
The song is just one of the highlights off a new album called Songs For The Disquiet. It's a suitably politicised record by a band that are self proclaimed whistle-blowers on the unjust society. It's an album that comments on fake news egging us on, about the rich using the police to quell discontent and how the ruling classes are sailing this ship. It's a carefully considered treatise on society, a society in which those at the top will go to any extremes to stay there.
