CITIZEN ZOMBIE BY THE POP GROUP

There are hiatuses and then there are hiatuses. The Pop Group see your hiatus and raise you. Massively.
It's 35 years since their last album, For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?, was released. 1980. Bleak. A year into Thatcher's reign of terror. Now look around you. And with not very much - notable exceptions apply - coming from contemporary bands on the current political situation, it's old hands that recognise the parallels to whom the baton falls. We featured Gang Of Four recently, for example, doing much the same.

The new album is Citizen Zombie which came out a couple of weeks ago and, from it, this is The Mad Truth.

Citizen Zombie is available on all formats from all the usual places right now - you choose if you want to use someone who pays tax in the UK. The Pop Group also do facebook if that's your thing.
