FOR ALL THE TRUE HEADS
FREE CHELSEA MANNING
Chelsea Girl is a protest song. As simply and directly as possible we want to draw attention to the plight of Chelsea Manning, the former United States Army officer who shed light on the darkness at the heart of western civilisation and made our world brighter. Now she is undergoing gender transformation in solitary confinement in a military prison. A heroine, a saint, branded a traitor and isolated from the world she helped. Despite the tragedy of the situation this is a song of joy, of light over darkness, a message across the sea letting the loneliest girl in the world know she is not and never will be alone.
RATS OF MAYFAIR
[ RATS OF MAYFAIR ]
Dig if you will the picture: a Mayfari nightclub, watering hole of the super rich, playpen of royals and oligarchs. For all their billion-headed assets - liquid and powder - each captain of industry will never be more than a couple yards from a rat. London is riddled! And the rats truly run this town. And the love the rat has for his mother carries more import and beauty than any love the oligarch has for his money. The prince can smell a rat but the rat can smell a prince, which is worse?
