The John Preston tribute Band formed in 2006 in an attempt to bring about a financial crash. After that resounding success in 2008 they started recording music and text is concerned with the multiple crises of ecological collapse, zombie politics, economic incompetence and the tragic consequences, that our otherwise intelligent species brings upon ourselves and our fellow lifeforms. Drawing on Zen jokes, wise old dissidents, punk riffs and outrageous piano and guitar escapades to bring some relief to otherwise hopeless subject matter.  


Their latest offering new single 2muchAg. A post industrial mockney rant, targeting, self named Chicken King, Ranjit Boporan and his 2Sisters factory farming monolith, of which 2Agriculture is a dusty, smelly subsidiary. 2Sisters has recently had it's rotting giblets dragged through the media and the parliamentary select committee for food and rural affairs following a hygiene scandal. "This sell by date seems to be wrong, this dirt cheap meats been around too long." Things became embarrassing after members of said, parliamentary select committee received Xmas hampers from 2Sisters. But for the Chicken empire trouble comes in 3's and probably more's. An old cranky feed mill in the village of Stoke Ferry, West Norfolk, has been found to be a dust bomb waiting to flatten the village and nothing was done despite being put on notice, by inspectors and enforcers. "Your emission submissions barely meet the minimum requirements by law of the government commission." "There's 2muchAg in the air." 


The John Preston Tribute Band declaim and cough as Stoke Ferry residents, tire of the routine disregard for the lives and health of the community. The song goes on to nail the shame of the dirty factory farming business that brutalises all involved for the sake of  a few bucks. "We don't see the sheds where the sun don't shine". The Stoke Ferry feed Mill may have provided "jobs”, but at what cost as we ingest it's filthy legacy. With the knowledge it could all blow up, (literally,) in our faces if we don't act. "Just enough is not good enough." 2muchAg available from our bandcamp site. X john
