In less that 12 hours, my favourite band, Million Dead, will be no
more. They announced on the 12 September that they were splitting up at
the end of the current tour. I managed to get two tickets to their
penultimate gig at the Camden Underworld. Their last gig, tonight in
Southampton, is sold out. The best way to describe them is
socio-political punk rock. Similar in style to Hell Is For Heroes, Biffy
Clyro or Reuben but with an anti-capitalist tilt.
Willy Wonka was a capitalist confidence trickster,
a poster boy for neo-liberalism, a full-stop on revolt.
And the BFG a propagandist for an unaccountable regime,
Orwell’s vision with a wrinkled face.
Here’s to the most gorgeous girl in rock; Jules.
