The 25th Of May is a big day in this house – it’s @kittycowan’s birthday, for one. It was also the name of a politically-driven, early 90s white Liverpool hip-hop band (named after the Argentine War of Independence) that despite some game application and barnstorming shows never quite found their niche. This is a white label of Fuck The Right To Vote, a disownment of mass apathy that their label Arista reputedly refused to release and later had the ignominy of being changed to Stuff The Right To Vote for a John Peel session (there’s also a great alternative take on their punning debut LP Lenin And McCarthy, whose sleeve warns of ‘explicit and subversive lyrics’). Machinations aside, it’s rabble-rousingly good in a PWEI-with-a-purpose, EMF-with-revolutionary-fervour sort of way. The band’s core agitator Steve Swindelli later resurfaced touting similarly strident ‘post-grunge cinematic hip-hop’ with Manbreak to a nation of deaf ears.
