NEW 12” SINGLE - ‘A VERY BRITISH COUP’ RELEASED- YOUTH SOUNDS / CADIZ MUSIC - 30TH AUGUST 2019
This is an amazingly accomplished song from a true corner stone of British music. Jah Wobble has "Got The Band Back Together" and detailed it with Andrew Weatherall & my lovely Jo's fox friend Nina Walsh. Out of the mouth of turmoil (Brexit) a true classic is born - imagine Tenko the musical by Rogers & Hammerstein! Or ..."paulie Stop! - Fran x"
