Zounds Ancient Briton

"Ancient Briton"
A heavy beat and a catchy chorus are the hallmarks of this anthem to
modern/ austerity/ binge-drinking/ ConDem Britain.
It starts in a pub in Bradford, takes a trip round the terraces, easy-jets it to
Spain and ends up with a picture on Facebook of an obliterated geezer lying
face down on the pavement wondering what day of the week it is.
It’s the reason the Romans high tailed it back to the sun.
And you thought they were just a wimpy peace and love band!

"Sick Of Work"
The B-side of this platter is also as catchy as hell (which is where this godless
band are headed).
With a chord sequence that launched a thousand hits and even more misses,
this feel-good waxing urges Britain’s hard working families to bunk-off, enjoy
the sunshine and throw a sickie. Still infantile after all these years.
The band might be out of step with the political classes but are bang up to
date by issuing this on vinyl, everybody’s favourite retro-petro-chemical byproduct.
Available as a download for those not into conspicuous consumption!

ZoundsLiveZounds - The Redemption of Zounds


The 10 songs he (Steve Lake) has written for the new album retain all the hall marks of the classic template; incisive lyrics, sharp guitars, satirical overtones, emotional terror and great, memorable tunes. Yet it sounds totally at home in a modern world that, Steve claims, 'is as bewildering, absurd, tragic and joyful as it ever was'.
The current line up is Steve Lake - guitar, Paul 'overdose O'Donnell - bass, Paul Gilbert - drums. All the boys sing like angels and play like demons. "
