The launch yesterday got closed down pretty quickly by the authorities which is strange as people had been performing in the square with amplification all afternoon… First they banned me from teaching people the dance moves, then they said they would confiscate my ukulele, then they wanted to nab my laptop which I was using to show people the video…
We also did a little performance on Norwegian TV nation news which was fun – http://www.tv2.no/2015/05/04/nyheter/6882840
The ‘Fuck Off Back To Eton’ for #1 launch will take place at 7pm on Monday, Parliament Square c/o Occupy Democracy.
You can hear the track below and buy it via iTunes, Spotify and others from Monday. Proceeds from sales will go to the Radical Housing Network and the Land Workers Alliance after I have given a bit of money to people who have given up their time to make the video and record the song.
Oh golly gosh, I was up in Northumberland to see my Nana for a peaceful break after the ‘Three Acres And A Cow‘ spring tour, when a nasty big blue bus cut me up on my bike… and then I had a little unplanned chance to sing to David Cameron… Quite an unexpected bit of serendipity perhaps?
