Protest For Dummies - Steve White & The Protest Family

£10.96 (£9.13 ex. vat)
So welcome, to the 3rd album from one of our favourite bands – the rather fab Steve White & The Protest Family.

Protest For Dummies is an unashamedly political album that nonetheless never hectors or lectures but will make you laugh, cry, tap your foot and sing along.

The two-year period that this album was written over saw a change of government whose programme gets set out in rhyme in God Save The Queen's Speech, increasing attacks on the welfare state and a heightening of the Syrian refugee crisis, which as the band are quick to point out is much more of a crisis for people fleeing war than for the governments of their
host countries. Would St George have got past the Calais Jungle, they ask.

Their tales of the times take in fox hunting, more UKIP gaffes and the media's treatment of Jeremy Corbyn, retold as a wrestling match. Steve turns his attention away from the band's Walthamstow base to bring us news from the northern end of the borough too. That place where the people who vote for Iain Duncan Smith live.

Musically the band are still occupying that space that's neither punk nor folk but at the same time is both, keeping the company of the likes of The Men They Couldn't Hang and The
Levellers while still earning comparisons with The Clash, Ian Dury and Billy Bragg.

RELEASED ON DECEMEBER 5TH - available to pre-order now.
