RantBox (it’s Foxie’s and it’s always slightly different but it just looks & sounds the same, ok ….. it is the same…these are my own views and not necessarily those of the band although they voted me leader to tell them what to do according to Gel, so you may remain mystified by it all……………..) So, you can read what we’re up to in the Newsbox without ever having to listen to my missives ever again to get the Bleeding News. Jolly Good. So as we head off into the uncharted territory of Article 50 the vacuous rhetoric of the Tories and Brexiteers continues unabated. It started with “they need us more than we need them” (wrong), a “no deal is better than a bad deal” (really, define your bad deal because a deal has to be ‘agreed’?), developed into using EU nationals already here as negotiating bargaining chips (a threat), then descended into A50 declaring “withdrawal of security co-operation” if we don’t get a trade deal (blackmail and dangerous for UK citizens) whilst all the time with Mrs May & Co declaring that the EU is going to have to talk about future trade arrangements BEFORE we’ve agreed the terms of the exit (what kind of idiot would believe that this is what the other side would do first in ANY negotiation when THEY hold all the trade cards and there’s a small matter of the divorce settlement to agree). You really have to wonder what world these politicians and the brainless all education expenses paid Etonites that make up their cohort inhabit. In my world, if I go into a meeting threatening all sorts, I’ll quite rightly get told to do one and likely leave with sod all or have to go back cap in hand apologising or giving serious ground to restore some level of trust. Not according to the UK Government it seems who thinks it can treat everyone like they treat the working class here. Good going guys, let’s see what crap you end up getting back before you realise it is called a ‘negotiation’ for a reason. Then there’s that Prize ‘Dick’; David Davis, don’t even get me started on him but on the good news front, at least UKIP is creeping away into the cesspit where it belongs. Hurrah, only 3 years until a General Election and the sad demise of the UK leaving just England & Wales. Well done Brexiteers, good job a-go-go. Cheers, Foxie
NewsBox For those of you visiting this page for the first time, here is a jargon buster: 'Hearts Attack' means gigs 'Hearts Propaganda' means biog 'Hearts Noize' means music 'Hearts Pix n Mix' means photo/video Hearts Doshswap' means merchandise The rest are hopefully self-explanatory (-: Gigs Gigs are being worked on and slowly coming in, so watch the GigBox, not GoggleBox, but the GigBox, or better still visit “Hearts Attack” which will tell you everything you need to know, apart from the meaning of life or what’s for tea ‘cus it’s all just a play on words innit. 2017 Plans Now that we’ve a few 2017 gigs under our belt, we’ve started turning our attention to the album and working on new material. Yipee. The plan, yes the plan, is to start recording later in 2017 with a planned early 2018 release. Given everything that has happened since June 2016 and the political clusterf**k that is continuing and in recognition of ‘the 3 wise monkeys’ attitude of the Brexiteers, it seems appropriate that this album is a sign of the times. So, “Patriots & Partisans” it is. Website Yup, it’s changed a bit. In a kind of evolutionary way, not a revolutionary one. Revolution’s cost money and take a lot of planning in case you hadn’t guessed but we live in hope…………………….see you somewhere in 2017. Peace & Love with the occasional necessary disturbance to keep things fresh. All the best, Foxie, Gel, Ewan, Stuart
