Having been temporarily banned from various venues in Essex, the group has now made multiple appearances in East London and their next show is …. The will also support Wild Palms in Chelmsford

The video is directed by Chris Wade (Dog Brain Studios) who also recently worked with Kagoule and Broken Hands, in the bands new adopted home on the south coast and brings to life the paganistic mania of the music and lyric.

  1. Made mildly more interesting by the Happy Mondays guitars, but is this really all we have to be excited about? Shit in a bucket.
