Recently the band expanded to a four-piece, initially as a bet, the band originally conceived the record as a Broadway musical based on the recent British phone-hacking scandal but were forced to abandon this idea due to budgetary restrictions. This is not a joke. After writing hundreds of songs, fifteen were recorded and placed into an order deliberately selected to present the full dynamic range of the experience, a gift which will be lost to anybody who regularly utilitises the “shuffle” function. Patience.
From the upcoming summer of sport (‘Failed Olympic Bid’) to the creative bankruptcy of the movie industry (‘Robocop 4 – F**k Off Robocop’), urban outfitted riots (‘City of Exploded Children’) and the gigantic rumbling mediocrity of celebrity culture (‘Notes on Achieving Orbit’), The Plot Against Common Sense is a mostly very loud condemnation of many things. How refreshing that the fine folks of “Future of The Left” are converting the souless wank and medioctrity of the daily media into music that rocks and will leave you laughing or crying with tears of delight.
Future Of The Left – The Plot Against Common Sense is out 8 June 2012 via Remote Control.
