Left Over Lolly - "Pity The Small/Social security" (YEAR 030) (YearZero/Snatch Tapes) 2015

To celebrate the forthcoming UK General election, Snatch Tapes and Year Zero Records brings you this cynical Election cash-in that as much to do with getting the lolly in the back bin as does the governments "trickle down" economic plan. Get this doom disco classic for 'NOTHING' and spend your 'trickle down' riches on the bastards who deserve your money,like Robin Thicke and fellow smug plagiarisers in the 'charts'.
Snatch Tapes DIY producer Philip Sanderson has put together a one off bedroom supergroup called Left Over Lolly and recorded this single, complete with cheesy 8 bit disco stomp loop and an elegant Georgian 4 min fade.
$et to a background of a field recording from the 2011 riots, this could be a prediction of the near future as the opportunities for 'the small' people are slowly strangled. The result of what is actually 'Trickle Up' economics, where the lower echelons of society are subjected to higher food and energy prices,lower wages(in real and adjusted terms),coupled with lower or non-existent benefits.The extra profits and lower expenses flood into the elite's bulging bank accounts. The world of the 'Haves' and the 'Have Yachts'. Where corrupt Bankers are rewarded with bail outs and bonuses for plunging half of the population into a poverty trap, with zero prospects(and Zero Hour Contracts) of joining the increasingly unattainable middle classes. The unemployed are endlessly demonised and ridiculed on state TV,and the real criminals are barely mentioned.....this calls for a Howard Zinn quote:
"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all-over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves and the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.” (Howard Zinn)
Good luck with your choice of out of touch Toff in the election,because whoever you vote for, the government will get in....and they ALL want to continue the capitalist kamikaze ride to inevitable self immolation.
(Except The GREENS....who are endorsed,second place to ABSTAINING,by Year Zero records)

So in the next riots, don't forget your mask, try and avoid looting any Plasma Screens and head for Whitehall and Westminster.Smash up the Houses of Shame and MI6 instead of the High Street shops.
