Peace On Your Plate are back with their second single and aiming to reach 1 million people

Peace On Your Plate, a musical collective aiming to spread a message of peace and positivity, are back with their second single – ‘Ask Me Why’.

It will be available to download and stream from Friday 4th September 2020. The song will be raising money for Animal Aid, which campaigns peacefully against all forms of animal abuse and promotes a cruelty-free lifestyle.

An official music video, filmed at Maypole Forest Garden, a sustainable project run by one of the band members, will accompany the launch of the track.

‘Ask Me Why’ was recorded remotely during lockdown and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright (Ed Sheeran, Blur, Radiohead). The song was written by Ian Haywood and is about the many times he has been asked ‘why are you vegan?’

Ian says:

“I wrote Ask Me Why in around 40 mins as a direct response to people asking me why I am vegan. I wanted to turn the whole question around in reply by saying the real question here is ‘why are you not vegan?’ But there is also a second turnaround in the song. What starts as a defensive reply ends as an all encompassing rally cry for the world to go vegan listing some of the great benefits and ultimately empowering people to make that change!”

The collective’s first single – ‘Peace On Your Plate’ – was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and released on 13th December 2019. It reached number 5 in the Amazon chart, number 7 in the Google chart and number 48 in the official UK downloads chart for Christmas 2019. The song aimed for the first vegan Christmas number 1 and raised money for Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary and Viva!

This time around, Peace On Your Plate are aiming for 1 million people to hear ‘Ask Me Why’. They also want to raise as much money as possible for Animal Aid.

“We are absolutely delighted that Peace on Your Plate has kindly decided to raise money for Animal Aid through its new single ‘Ask Me Why’. This positive and uplifting song carries an important message of compassion for animals, and inspires people to choose a cruelty-free diet. We are extremely grateful to Peace on Your Plate and would encourage everyone to listen to the single and ask your friends to do the same!” Isobel Hutchinson, Director, Animal Aid

‘Ask Me Why lyrics

I’m on a quest for a better world, caring and compassionate, a journey to end suffering, in every way I can
And you ask me why am I vegan? Well I am, because I’m a compassionate human
Excuse my imposition but are you aware of the fact that lives were made to suffer for what is on your dinner plate
And you ask me why am I vegan? When you should ask yourself why you’re not because I know you got it in you to be

So come on come on come on, we can save the world go vegan
Yes come on come on come on, give the innocents their freedom – make it happen
And you ask me why I’m vegan? Well it’s simple, my zone is cruelty free and I hope you will join with me
So come on come on come on, we can save the world go vegan
Yes come on come on come on, give the innocents their freedom
Yes come on come on come on, feed the starving world go vegan
Yes come on come on come on, teach compassion to our children
Yes come on come on come on, give a mother back her babies – make it happen

It is easy to forget that less than 18 months ago Fontaines D.C. were yet to even release their debut album. In the here and now, masterfully captured once again by the unique production talent of Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey, the band’s second record A Hero’s Death arrives heralded as something of a masterpiece. On the heels of their breakthrough debut album Dogrel, and following the release of lead tracks “A Hero’s Death”, “I Don’t Belong” and “Televised Mind”, A Hero’s Death’s innovative and bruising rush of bold and bewitching song writing is already being fervently devoured by fans. The band are currently sitting at #1 in the UK midweek album chart, seeing them go head to head with Taylor Swift’s Folklore which currently sits at #2.

Buy / stream A Hero’s Death HERE.

On what under normal circumstances may be good cause for a victory lap of the UK’s live music venues, last night the band instead broadcast online “A Night At Montrose, Dublin” – a first-ever performance of A Hero’s Death front to back in its entirety. The video will remain viewable HERE until 10pm BST on Weds 5th August and the album can be purchased / streamed HERE.

CRASS – THE FEEDING OF THE FIVE THOUSAND REMIX PROJECT update

CRASS – THE FEEDING OF THE FIVE THOUSAND REMIX PROJECT

NORMAL NEVER WAS 2’ 12” TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 4th VIA CRASS RECORDS

AVAILABLE DIGITALLY TODAY FROM HERE:

FEATURES ‘G’S SONG’ REMIXED BY CULT NEW YORK CITY DJ AND PRODUCER JOHNNY DYNELL

AND ‘BANNED FROM THE ROXY’ BY ELECTRONIC COMPOSER CHARLES WEBBER.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO REFUGE – WWW.REFUGE.ORG.UK

Following XL Recordings honcho Richard Russell’s remix of ‘Bomb’ a few weeks back, the Crass ‘Feeding Of The Five Thousand’ remix project enters its next stage with a high-energy dancefloor deconstruction of ‘G’s Song’ by New York DJ, producer and promoter Johnny Dynell. Well known for his 1983 cult hit ‘Jam Hot’ (remixed and sampled many times over, most famously by Fatboy Slim and his group Beats International for ‘Dub Be Good To Me’ in 1990), Dynell has had a long and illustrious career in music with his roots in the 70s Downtown No Wave art-punk scene. Dynell’s connection and friendship with Crass goes back to those days when the anarchist punk icons played their only US gigs in 1978 in New York.

I met Gee (Vaucher, visual artist for Crass) in 1977 when she came to live in NYC and we shared a loft space with another friend,” remembers Dynell. “I met CRASS in 1978 when they came to play and we became very close. Gee had her own place by then which is where the band stayed. After practically living with them all while they were in town, I quickly became aware of how bad things were in England and that bands like CRASS were really trying to make a difference. The difference between the New York Punk scene and the English scene at the time was striking. New York was nowhere near as political or as intense. CRASS were definitely not just interested in getting a record contract. Gee was and continues to be a role model and a positive influence on me.”

Because of his fondness for Gee, Dynell picked ‘G’s Song’ for his remix. It was his favourite from ‘Feeding…’, written by Vaucher in NYC before she returned to England to join the band.

This track was a real challenge though because I wanted to do something totally different with it,” he explains. “I wanted it to sound more like the tracks that I DJ in clubs, but still have the power and drive of the punk original. I used Steve’s iconic vocals and a few bars of the punk guitar in the intro to show the song’s roots. The drums change at the end of the song to a more driving punk beat. I hoped that this would bring back some of the original live energy of the band I’d experienced.”

Watch the lyric video for ‘G’s Song

Crass – G’s Song Remix (Official Lyric Video) from One Little Independent Records on Vimeo.

The 12” also includes a jarring, cut-up experimental remix of the band’s infamous ‘Banned From The Roxy’ worked on by electronic composer and video artist Charles Webber who, apart from his own extensive compositions, has for many years collaborated closely with Crass vocalist Eve Libertine on such works as the chamber opera ‘Room of Worlds’, an arrangement of Wilhelm Reich’s ‘Listen Little Man’ and the ‘Kernschmelze’ series devised by Crass founder Penny Rimbaud.

‘Normal Never Was 2’ is available digitally and on coloured blue vinyl with a limited pressing of 500 copies on September 4th via Crass Records, now working through One Little Independent Records.

Late last year Crass took the step of making the original separate track stems of their seminal debut album ‘The Feeding of the Five Thousand’ available as a free download. With a call to take the original sixteen track recording in its pre-mix state, the intent was for people to create their own remixes and interpretations and breathe fresh life and ideas into this revolutionary music.

First released in 1978, ‘The Feeding of the Five Thousand’ pre-empted rap and grime in its hard-on-the-beat, fast fire, uncompromising lyrics and the iconic sounds and messages are ripe for reinterpretation. Crass encouraged people to rip apart the sound and ideas and create something new, then send the files to Crass Records for future releases and charitable projects. The message is DIY like it never was before. “Yours for the taking, yours for the making,” Crass said. “You do it, we’ll stew it. Mix it backwards, forwards and upside down. Turn up the heat and fix it with a downbeat, bring in the trumpets and let ‘em blow, let the piper call the tune to let us all know. It’s up to you to do what you like with it. The only limitation is your imagination.”

All monies raised from the project will go to the charity ‘Refuge’ – http://www.refuge.org.uk who state:

‘Refuge is incredibly grateful to Crass and their team for helping raise vital funds for Refuge. Since the start of lockdown, Refuge has seen a 66% rise in demand for its Helpline, and a 950% rise in visits to its Helpline website. This shows the sheer extent of the need for specialist domestic abuse services – not just during lockdown but beyond. Every penny raised helps us to ensure that no woman or child is turned away from safety.

‘While lockdown itself doesn’t cause domestic abuse – abuse happens all year round – it does, of course, have the potential to aggravate pre-existing abusive behaviours – and the data we have shows us the increase in the need for our services during lockdown. Refuge worked incredibly hard at the beginning of the pandemic to make sure our services remained open and remained safe. The generous donations we have received, including those from Crass, mean we can continue to provide the life-saving and life-changing services that women experiencing domestic abuse need and deserve.’

THE LOVELY EGGS RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘LONG STEM CARNATIONS’

UK DATES ANNOUNCED FOR FEBRUARY 2021
NUMBER ONE SELLING NEW ALBUM ‘I AM MORON’ OUT NOW!

Today sees the release of The Lovely Eggs brand new single ‘Long Stem Carnations’ via Egg Records.

The track, taken from their number one selling album ‘I am Moron’, is released on limited-edition coloured 7” vinyl and backed by brand new B side ‘The Voyage’. 

‘Long Stem Carnations’ was inspired by the Mars One programme, a global project which aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars.  Applicants are offered a one-way ticket- never to see earth again. This fascinated Lovely Eggs Holly and David who drew parallels between this mission and their own isolation as a band.

‘Long Stem Carnations’ is a funeral march for society’s outcasts and freaks. It’s an existential voyage in cosmic form. “Is there an internal self-destruct button that cannot be destroyed?” said Holly. “We are all the pilots of our own ship. You’ve just got to remember it’s important to try and hang on and see the mission through.”

For the video the ever-inventive duo used lockdown time wisely and creatively to handmake their own claymation video for ‘Long Stem Carnations’. “We’ve been making the video for “Long Stem Carnations” ourselves at home over the last few months,” explains Holly. “It’s been a bit of a beast really. We love claymation and had done a bit of it in some of our previous videos, so we wanted to do something with animation. We forgot though that it just takes SO fucking long. And we had no idea it was going to turn out how it did. We started by doing some animation bits and then David got the idea to have our heads but animated versions. So, we made a plasticine mask to cover my face. We modelled it on the cut off head of a dummy and then transferred it to my face. It looked so freaky it was unreal and right there and then we knew the video was gunna take a drastic turn and we just followed it! We then decided that it would be a cool idea if I WAS the cut off dummy, cos the song is all about being cut off and isolation, so it was a perfect fit thematically. We then faced the task of actually figuring out how to film it and put it all together!! We are definitely not animators or video makers, so it was a big learning process that took two months to come to fruition. We also had our seven year old little boy at home with us throughout the whole process and if you can imagine making a claymation video out of plasticine with a 7 year old in the room, well I’m sure you can imagine!! But we’re glad it’s done and pleased how it turned out in its own freaky way. It’s for the big bunch of freaks out there who feel like they’re disconnected and out there on their own, but we’re all connected in some way. We’ve all just got to hang on for the ride!!! Long Stem Carnations forever!!”



‘I am Moron’ was declared “Album of the Day” by BBC 6 Music and received critical acclaim from the national press:
The Sunday Times called it “A Triumph”, ★★★★ “I am Moron is much cleverer than it would have you believe”- The Telegraph, ★★★★ – I Paper, 9/10-
Louder Than War, “An act of fine calibration of noise and sweetness”- Q, “Packed with their observations of modern culture and the utter madness of the current world”- Sunday Mirror, Album of the month- Classic Rock, “Their Best Record Yet”- Long Live Vinyl, 8/10- Uncut, “Anarcho spirit dominates”- MOJO, “Excellent”- Brooklyn Vegan.

Despite all of this deserved praise and success, the band have obviously been gutted to not be able to play live throughout this period, and due to the on-going Coronavirus situation, have made the tough decision to cancel all scheduled live appearances this year and have focused their attentions and hopes on a UK tour in February 2021.

Cardiff’s HIMALAYAS release ‘WE LOVE TO HATE’ on Friday

Cardiff’s HIMALAYAS release ‘WE LOVE TO HATE’ on Friday

Out July 3rd

Himalayas are a four-piece garage rock band from Cardiff who have spent the last few years honing their sound and style. Heavy guitar lines, dual vocals and huge anthemic hooks hold and captivate audiences old and new. Having played at countless festivals, sold out local venues and received an impressive amount of radio and international interest they move forward in 2020 with a new single

 ‘We Love To Hate’ out July 3rd. The track is produced by Steffan Pringle (Estrons).

Like many bands and artists (and to the disgust of many a fascist out there), Himalayas are politically-active, and nowhere is that more obvious than in this new track. As Gigwise.com say, ‘Love To Hate’ uses frenetic garage rock as the medium for delivering this message: “never could you love to love yourself/so you love to hate” frontman Joe Williams howls on the cyclone of the guitars that surround him’

The band, who consist of Joe Williams (lead vocals/guitars), Mike Griffiths (guitars/vocals) and Louis Heaps (bass) met at school and bonded over their love of bands like The Strokes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse, Royal Blood and Manic Street Preachers.  Drummer James Goldbourn moved to Cardiff from Dubai and found like-minded souls in the trio to complete the line up.

Releasing their first tracks in 2017, they were quickly picked up by the likes of Huw Stephens, Greg James and Clara Amfo at Radio 1 alongside Gordon Smart (Radio X), and over in the states on Jason Kramer (KCRW). Tracks including the single, ‘Thank God I’m Not You’ have amassed an incredible number of streams on Spotify, tipping 22 million and counting. They have also been featured on key playlists including the influential Walk Like A Badass.

On the live front, in the last year they have performed on the Festival Republic stage at the Reading & Leeds Festival, SXSW and The Great Escape, as well as an array of headline shows.

The band describe ‘We Love To Hate’as a song about “projecting anger outwards towards undeserving targets rather than facing up to and addressing our own problems. It’s becoming easier and easier to pin it on the most popular scapegoats than to go to the root of the problem and try to fix it.”   

A wild, unerring cyclone of sound, it’s a furious anthem-in-waiting that’s destined to be sung into bedroom mirrors the world over and howled back to the band at future live shows.

Animal Breakdown release new single Night Garden

ANIMAL BREAKDOWN – ‘Night Garden’ 29th May 2020


“It’s all Wire spike, Buzzocks drive, Cure peculiarity and with a bass line and drumbeats that leave you with no choice but to dance, or prance, around the room.” – TheMildManneredArmy.com

A band I look forward to hearing much more from.” – EmergingIndieBands.com

FFO: The Cure, Big Deal, The Replacements, Pillow Queens, Manic Street Preachers, Desperate Journalist, The Cribs, Asylums, Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies, Best Coast, Piano Wire, Silversun Pickups, Nada Surf…

London’s ANIMAL BREAKDOWN self-release their new single ‘Night Garden’ on 29th May 2020, distributed by DistroKid.
https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/animalbreakdown/parting-glass-ep


Night Garden’ follows up on the success of 2019’s debut double single ‘Parting Glass’ // ‘Black Horse’ with the London power trio advancing with all guns blazing on their latest track. Recorded during a weekend retreat to the cheapest, dingiest hostel available the boys united with audio engineer Wynter Prior at the helm in Brighton’s AudioBeach Studios. ‘Night Garden’ offers up a delicious new-wave-tinged nocturnal driving rock anthem for the new decade, with a breezy cruising guitar riff paving the way for a dramatic jump into a crushing chorus. ‘Night Garden’ demonstrates Animal Breakdown’s skill at fusing catchy captivating melodies with powerful dark energy and beguiling lyrics. The song’s subject matter deals with sex, sleaze, dangerous liaisons, the reckless paradox / contradiction of feeling both invincible yet hopeless and the ensuing battle of confidence vs consequence.

Animal Breakdown – “Night Garden” (new single) – Music Matters

Born out of the ashes of family tragedy, broken hearts, violence and unemployment brothers in arms Martin Lynch, Josef Mitchell and Marco Nikic formed ANIMAL BREAKDOWN bringing their intense and passionate live show to a number of venues growing their fanbase across the capital and the rest of the UK.
