Stevenage anarcho mob BAD BREEDING have dropped a video for their new single.
‘Whose Cause?’ is the first track to be taken from their forthcoming third album Exiled, which follows on from last year’s Abandonment EP, their debut release for One Little Indian.
The video is the work of Owen Deutsch of D4MT Labs and NYC punks KALEIDOSCOPE.
“’Whose Cause?’ explores political misdirection in the media and its role in sowing seeds of division, suspicion and distrust in our communities,” explains frontman Christopher Dodd. “It touches on the nefarious ties between capital and a pocketed media class, while commenting on how instruments of the right have harnessed and manipulated divisive politics of identity in an attempt to dent the collective bonds of solidarity that bind our communities together. It’s about pushing beyond force-fed narratives and looking at the disastrous implications reactionary storytelling has on propping up the survival of late capitalism and the patrician outriders it funds and protects: the gilded bourgeoisie, the imperialists, the warmongers, the contemptuous old-money hawks, the emboldened corporate elite.”
Exiled is set for release on 21 June and is available to pre-order here.
Bad Breeding play the following dates…
July 21st – Crofter’s Rights, Bristol July 22nd – The Polar Bear, Hull July 23rd – Temple of Boom, Leeds July 24th – The Moon, Cardiff July 25th – Electrowerkz, London
UK rockers SYTERIA have had all their gear nicked after a gig in London.
The Yorkshire band, who feature GIRLSCHOOL guitarist Jackie Chambers, had been playing dates to roadtest material for their forthcoming new album. They’d just played a gig at The Lounge venue in North London before spending the night at the local Premier Inn. The next morning they discovered that their van, parked in the hotel’s car park, had been emptied.
“What next?” they ask. “Well, now we have to replace all the gear as well as find the money to pay for the studio, pressing, printing, etc. in readiness for the new album. Thankfully the gigs we do have booked, the support bands, and local musicians have all been kind enough to lend us their equipment until we do replace it.”
The band have set up a Kickstarter page to fund the release of their next album Reflection. Their modest target was reached in three days, but please consider chipping in to help the band out of a tight spot.
Roots rock supergroup THE A.C.C. have a new video and they’re premiering it exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

An abbreviation of Abbiati Cantarelli Conspiracy, The A.C.C. are fronted by co-guitarist/vocalists Ed Abbiati from roots rock band Lowlands and Stiv Cantarelli of blues-punks Silent Strangers and J.D. Hangover notoriety. The band’s line-up is completed by drummer Antonio Perugini from the Silent Strangers and bassist Joe Barreca of The Mandolin Brothers. Their fifth guest member on the album is guitar and keyboard player Chris Cacavas from Green On Red and The Dream Syndicate.
Ska legend NEVILLE STAPLE and his wife Sugary have announced a new single to coincide with their dates with THE UNDERTONES.
‘Working Hard Everyday’ follows on from recent single ‘Put Away Your Knives’ and the album Rude Rebels, featuring Neville’s Specials cohort Roddy Radiation.
Neville and Sugary Staple co-wrote ‘Working Hard Everyday’ with Charlie Organaire (aka Charles Cameron), best friend and colleague to ska pioneer Prince Buster. He was involved in many of the legend’s hit songs, as well as writing his own music and working with Prince Buster’s son Sultan.
