Kill all ruling class laws
Slightly awkward but a thoroughly enjoyable tune with occasional moments of brilliance (in this case the slightly more subdued part in the middle of the verses)? Check. Utterly bullshit lyrics? Check. Sloganeering-filled shouty chorus for shouting along? Check. Hello typical GT era song.
And that’s about that from A Vision of Dead Desire. Well, those parts and the fact that it’s much catchier than the average GT b-side. It’s got a fairly simple, riff-tastic verse that’s pretty much a giant prodding hook that refuses to detach itself. It’s also got those funky filtered/layered vocals (is that Nicky singing along?) which sound quite unlike anything else during the GT era. But it’s not such a good track that you’d cry over not having it. Pretty basic formula stuff. Funnily enough, the song’s outro and its wannabe-anthemic rising turns the song’s mood into something completely different right at the end; would have been interesting to see if the rest of the song had continued on that vein.
It’s nothing special but it’s got a right amount of the typical GT youthly energy and the verses are quite good (even if so simplistically hooking that it’s daft) so it’s definitely got its merits. But you can’t say much else than “it’s pretty b-sidey” from it.
This was originally called UK Channel Boredom and a demo exists. Outside the different chorus (musically around the same, lyrically completely different from what I can make of it) and the little trivia value that’s got, there’s not much to it.
