The world is in the grip of a global pandemic, and our government is unable to decide upon the nutritional substantiality of a scotch egg. The country is teetering on the brink of a potentially catastrophic no-deal Brexit. Defeated US president Donald Trump is clinging to his seat in the White House by his finger nails. These terrible times need a soundtrack that makes sense of the nonsense by lobbing it right back where it came from like a Hong Kong pro-democracy demonstrator smashing back a tear gas cannister with a tennis racket. Gammon-baiting Blackpool punks Those Fucking Snowflakes might just be the ones to provide it.
We’ve been fans ever since the chaotic rumble of first single ‘Stop Being Dickheads To Each Other’ and its zombie Theresa May video (remember when we thought she was the worst that could happen to us?) landed in our inbox. Since then we’ve had a string of wonderfully titled singles (my favourite being ‘Vegan Sausage Rolls vs Gammon Faced Vampires‘), and more recently the news of a tie in with the ever-reliable Louder Than War for the release of an EP in the new year.
That EP, Everything Is Absolutely Fkkkkkkd, will be the debut release for Louder Than War Records and is due out on 22nd January on yellow 10″ vinyl. Whilst we await the full release, we have a little glimpse of what to expect with the premiere of the first track to be unveiled from the EP. ‘Due Some Terrible End’ calls out the rise of racism, homophobia and other forms of bigotry and the people in positions of power who have enabled and encouraged it. It’s backed by a video performed in full zombie Boris garb in front of the famous lights of their home town.
