Track of the Day: Patrick T. Davies – Mob Rule Britannia
What better way could Far Out mark this momentous milestone of matrimony (can you detect the sarcasm?) than with something brand new that takes a suitably irreverent sideswipe at British nationalism and the monarchy.
Manchester-based performance poet Patrick T. Davies gave us the video for his debut track ‘Mob Rule Britannia’ just in time for the big occasion – and we couldn’t help but have it as our Track of the Day this fine Saturday.
It’s what can only be described as a downtrodden approach to dealing with the royal hysteria. Set to a pulsating electro loop, Davies delivers a 4-minute torrent of spoken word exploring the royal tabloid fixation, misplaced national pride and ever-aggressive British attitudes to immigration.
So for a wedding party that’s all-together a little more thoughtful, check out the video for ‘Mob Rule Britannia’ below and get the track as a free download via Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
