11am Saturday July 3rd @ The Walks Kings Lynn..Les and John are the bands delegates tomorrow morning as the folk of Lynn campaign to save their hospital from decay and downgrading. We've mustered a short set with the aid of a distortion pedal . A Drum n' bass duo. Glad to be sharing the mic with Jeremy Corbyn, Emily Blake, Sam Cook, Jo Rust, Pallavi Devulapalli, Gordon Taylor and Diarmuid Tiernan 

It's a complex world, so when I wish this campaign success. I also wish for the building contractor not to screw things up and stiff us for cost overuns. For surely they'll try it on. And maybe drop the QE2 business. How about the Kings Lynn Hospital of integrated medicine? Then my neighbour won't have to schlepp down to the London NHS hospital of integrated medicine for her cancer treatment that may head off chemotherapy. Yes the consultaion comes care of the NHS but the treatment isn't covered. Finally may big Pharma get it's knee off our neck

This is the first two released tracks recorded over 2019 by the Band at Perfect World Studios in West Norfolk. Working For the Man features Piano from Carol Hunter and guitars from Brian Eade with John Preston on vocals. Lockdown meant we couldn't experiment with bass and percussion. But Les Chappell percussionist and perfect world engineer declared the track finished after Brian emailed him some haunting pedal steel guitar. Available on bandcamp.


White Trash features; Les Chappell, Drums, percussion: Brian Eade, many guitars: Carol Hunter, Piano and John Preston Bass and Vox


The videos appropriate some of the bands performance props. E.g. the use of song titles on cardboard boxes has extended into collage and newspaper hacking. The performer sings to the monitor camera in lockdown in a strawbale shack in West Norfolk. Nicking old gig shots and family photo's. And learning to edit on the job. It feels the limitations of this predicament have enriched the process of finalising this project.


We seem to make enough money to pay the next website hosting bill. It would be nice to reach more listeners but in the main a more wholesome culture is our aspiration..

“Eat out catch a virus!” As power continues to delegitimise itself via venality, greed, cruelty and incompetence the UK govt. have arrived at the only option left. Gimmicks and empty slogans, these last miserable celebrations of death culture will be like bad re runs, followed up with a bad cough. “Eat out to help out” sticks a fiver in your pocket so you can go and have a “full English Covid”. With a pat on the head from Rishi 12 houses Sunak. This novel strategy brings in an era of Govt. by special offer. The Tories will ditch the “Manifesto” at the next General Election in favour of a catalogue filled with coupons and QR codes, offering free entry to fun places like Chessington world of adventure where you can get a free Covid test and not receive the results. Vouchers for Weatherspoons and Greggs. Discount sporting events, cruises and other forms of high risk entertainment. Meanwhile Labour with produce 500 pages of “Rational evidence based policy”, procedures, protocols, rules and guidelines. The Tories will thrash us yet again…This is dystopia, It doesn’t look like it does in the movies. No rugged individualist fighting off zombies in a wrecked metropolis. No. Dystopia is grabbing a cheap bad sandwich in bad clothes and really regretting it when the second spike bites. Dystopia is failing to respect deadly consequences and supplanting courage with stupidity.


I’ll be eating in and working on our next Video “White Trash”. May go for a double bubble release in August, when Working For the Man will be available for download and viewing…. X J

The fun graph obviously indicates the possibility of a scary winter. More like terrible winter. But looking into the near future August looks pretty shit if you ask me. No wonder the govt. are increasing mortuary capacity.


What do we do with this as we drift towards pseudo normal? Trying to relive the halcyon days of shopping paradise, drifting around in search of that endorphine fix from a purchase, or buying kebabs with shedded Virus droplets and chilli sauce.


We're ready to go, go, gone. Who's being had?


We hope to have "Working for the Man" on release prior to this eventuality.

Working For The Man 1.


Regarding ‘The Return to “Normal”’ or “re opening the economy”…….


1) No!

2) No! No more “Working For The Man.”

3) It was never normal.

4) More like a psychotic drug with psychopathic side (and centre) effects.

5) Still is.

6) The system ain’t dead quite yet. But is still killing us off.

7) Not by method but by greed and stupidity.

8) Not a conspiracy, but a stupidocracy.

9) Re opening won’t work anyway.

10) re infection spikes, no apparent immunity. close down again, again, again..

11) It’s the pandemic age.

12) Supply chains snapping, cracking and broke, with the emphasis on broke.

13) The collapse of energy profit.

14) Where were all those spare part widgets for our things and toys, not manufactured this first quarter?

15) Drought.

16) Working for the man always was invariably boring

17) And in the main subtracts from our commonwealth

18) i.e. economic growth = death

19) No, No return to “Normal” please

20) No more tedious BBC/Govt. abstract data, statistics, punditry and alleged expertise. 

21) It’s grey culture of authority and official wisdom

22) No more labour for sale, rent and mortgage.

23) No more abuse of land and animals for the sake of kinky appetites.

24) More of less, readily available to all in abundance.

25) More kind regard, less stinginess.

26) More thinking, talking, contemplating, care and reflection. over and over.

27) The repair job requires the qualities in 26 prior to action

28) Our “leaders” and managers are bereft of these capacities due to expensive and damaging education.

29) The repair job is about repairing what was broken by “Normal”

30) Forget normal. It never was but an extraordinary elaborate aberration.

31) Working For The Man, single release on Bandcamp coming soon….. X Jonny
