Album review: Thee Faction, Good Politics (Soviet Beret)


Click to follow

The fourth album by self-styled “unpleasant socialist R&B band” Thee Faction has as its stated goal “complete human emancipation”.

A dozen exhilarating attacks on austerity in a Redskins-meets-Dr Feelgood style, Good Politics is packed with quotable slogans (“We didn’t start a class war ... but we’re gonna end one”, “The House Of Lords over the cliff in a bus”). Thee Faction defy you to say they’re joking. They are. They aren’t. They are/n’t.
