BRUCE’S RECOMMENDATION OF BANDCAMP MUSIC

Music: “Han Solo”

Album: THE DEBASED STREET MUSIC OF THE VULGAR

Artist: Steve White & The Protest Family

Artist Location: UK

Info:

“[They] remind me of The Clash” – Basil Gabbidon (Steel Pulse)

“I love this band. Punk minstrels who chronicle our times with humour, passion and immense talent.” – Bob Oram, Morning Star

“Everybody please visit: Steve White & The Protest Family” – Tom Robinson

“Constructive political music” – Joe Solo  

Gareth Williams, a fan, wrote, “Lyrically on point. And actually as catchy as f***!
I can’t get Han Solo out of my head. ‘Who’s gonna tell Han Solo that no means no?’ Love this! (‘And don’t get me started on James Bond.’) Favorite track: ‘Han Solo.’”

“The media are lying to you. They’re telling you that the era of the protest song is over. They’re telling you that folk music is what Mumford & Sons do; cuddly, commodified, unchallenging and sanctioned by the Prime Minister, no less. 

“They are wrong. 

“Steve White & The Protest Family are East London’s favourite folk punk political sing-along band. We may not be safe enough for the major labels, but we’ve definitely got something to say, and we’re going to say it, with wit, a certain brash charm, guitars, banjos, mandolins and, dare we say it, moments of four-part harmony. Ours is a revolution that’ll have you tapping your foot and smiling from ear-to-ear. Thinking, too, if we have our way.”

Price: £5 (GBP) for five-track album; tracks cannot be purchased separately
