The Battery Farm

The Battery Farm are back as strong as ever, slaying the live circuit with their incendiary gigs, a bonkers frontman who comes across like the bastard son of Buster Bloodvessel and a guitarist who romps around the stage like a maniac in a Neil Sedaka t-shirt. This new offering Roy Keane Isn’t Real is the scuzziest punk number they’ve produced yet. A searing hit on the senses that fucks you up. Read on…

This is the second song to be lifted from the upcoming EP Dirty Den’s March Of Suffering which lands in October. It’s a tale of fake news and the bullshit we hear in the government tainted brainwashing news from one of our main corporations I won’t mention who water down the real stuff for the so called gammons who believe everything they read. Or is it? You decide. Anyway it’s two and half minutes of razor sharp noise with a video to match, filmed mostly on Oldham Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter by the excellent visual skills of Trust A Fox. A welcome return to the North Manc lads with a lot to look forward to.

Frontman Ben Corry explains (sort of):

“Have you ever met Roy Keane? We’ve never met him. Where is he whenever there’s something going on? Not with you, that’s for sure. How come he always fails to materialise? How come you only ever see him on TV, where FAKE NEWS is rife? Think, yeah? This is a song about conspiracy theories and the logic behind them.”

The ironic thing about the whole song is that Roy Keane is ACTUALLY real. I should know. I saw him deliberately break Alfie Haaland’s leg at a Manchester City game back in the day. I bet he’s never been to Gorton though, the bastard…

The Battery Farm play Gullivers NQ, Manchester on October 16th. The venue will be transformed into a sinister world of their own. Expect a modern freak show…
