Incendiary folk-punk agitators STEVE WHITE & THE PROTEST FAMILY have their third album out this week.
Protest For Dummies was written over a two-year period that has seen a change in government, further attacks on the welfare state and the Syrian refugee crisis. While reflecting these issues, the album's songs also take in fox-hunting, UKIP gaffes and the media's treatment of Jeremy Corbyn.
Formed in 2009, the Walthamstow band has become a regular and essential feature of benefit shows and festivals across the country, sharing stages with the likes of THE LEVELLERS, THE MEN THEY COULDN'T HANG, BILLY BRAGG and THEE FACTION. White himself is also the host of unplugged sessions at the annual Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival in Dorset.
Protest For Dummies is available to download from the band's Bandcamp page, and on CD from Four Dogs Music and Bookmarks Socialist bookshop.
