About this item

Fresh from a series of triumphant festival appearances this summer, including performances at Glastonbury, Latitude, Bluedot and Deer Shed, She Drew The Gun announce brand new single ‘Trouble Every Day’ released on Skeleton Key Records on 29th August 2019.

A reinterpretation of Frank Zappa’s original, She Drew The Gun frontwoman Louisa Roach has updated the lyrics to reflect our troubled times. Louisa comments –

I heard Trouble Every Day and thought it would make a great cover, Frank Zappa wrote it based on the TV coverage of the Watts riots in LA back in the 60’s, so I rewrote some of the lyrics to reflect what I’ve seen reported on the TV in more recent times, from English riots to the Extinction Rebellion protests. It takes a look at the issues that are facing us at the moment from the rise of the far right to the threat of climate change and the role the global media corporations play in supporting neoliberal ideology.

The revisions to the lyrics received the full blessing of the Zappa estate who were keen to hear the song adapted to suit contemporary times.
