Bigot’s Banquet from Punktastic duo Cherry & Peesh out Friday

Inequalities and injustice highlighted by an eclectic mix of music and poetry make for a must-listen album!

This third album by Cherry b and Peesh LoGOz once again brings together their unique talents as Cherry & Peesh, Essex punk poet and Northumberland guitarist, singer and songwriter respectively.

Bigot’s Banquet‘ draws upon a mixture of styles and sources, acoustic and electric, spoken word and song, from the heartfelt pleas of yearning to be understood in ‘You Don’t Know How I Feel‘ to the political anger and thundering riffs in ‘Fool English‘.

Humour abounds in the tongue in cheek ‘Married To The Mod‘ and tales of positivity and hope are captured in ‘5 Year Plan‘ and ‘Dark Horse‘. The musical style undulates from Rock to Punk to Folk, mesmerising and evocative guitar led compositions laying down the soundtrack.

The album concludes with a fired-up cover of X-Ray Spex‘s cult classic ‘Plastic Bag‘.

The title track ‘Bigot’s Banquet‘ – a rocking electric guitar driven song is out now;  “Arrogance fills the spaces, The crumbs of greed leave no traces”

For those new to Cherry & Peesh, this dynamic duo specialise in spoken word at the forefront of their music. In addition to continuous gigging across the UK, they present their own show on Louder Than War Radio called ‘Poetry is the New Rock n Roll‘ – find previous shows on Mixcloud HERE.

They are already working on their next album, which will be a collaboration with Dub artists!
