Tory Baiting split 7" picture disc, with all profits going to Love Music Hate Racism.
20 Years ago, a punk rock trio from Welwyn Garden City called S*M*A*S*H smuggled a song about killing the hated, corrupt and discredited Tory government into the Top 30 of the hit parade. Their righteous anger struck a chord right across the country.Fast forward two decades and we have another detested, unrepresentative government of the rich-for -the-rich, and the sense of bottled up, unrepresented, unexpressed anger and frustration is as vehement as ever. To help give this potent force a voice, S*M*A*S*H have re-recorded their anthem and show no signs of mellowing with age; the barbed lyrics still bristle with incandescent, righteous anger, and have been rewritten to suit the current condemned government.
S*M*A*S*H are joined on this single by a devastating track by Loughborough rapper and bin man NXTGEN. His notorious Andrew Lansley Rap made him a viral hit on Twitter and Youtube [with over 580,000 views of the video] and he has since laid into the Bedroom Tax, the Cuts and David Cameron's cabinet of millionaires. CONDEMned manages to combine these targets in one magnificent poetic rant of rage, showcasing breakneck verbal gymnastics married to knowledge and wit, all accompanied by an understated laid back piano sample.
