Celebrate election season with TORY SCUM

by Ruth

It’s finally happened – we’re releasing a music video!

Featuring Not Right “classic” Tory Scum, this video was kindly assembled in true DIY style by awesome VJ funkcutter (of punkvert and anarchistwood fame).

With the General Election just weeks away, please share this video and vote in the election.

Voting won’t overthrow the neo-liberal establishment, but it is a fantastic Tory-removing mechanism.

“This Revolution Is Not Complete” on BBC 6 Music

by Ruth

Our song was played on 6 Radio Music’s “riot grrrlz” show last night!

You can listen to the show here.

It’s available on iPlayer until the end of the month. They play a bit fast and loose with the idea of “riot grrrl” but it’s well worth a listen with some amazing tunes all round.

Massive thanks to everyone who requested our songs, particularly our musical buddy Maki Yamazaki / Dr Carmilla (whose tweet was read out on the show) and riot grrrl legends Lucid Nation. A shout out also to Grim Dylan, the other underground Midlands band whose music was played – they’ve just released an album and it’s really good.

If you wanna hear loads more awesome feminist punk bands, you should have a peek at our UK Riot Grrrl page!

“Balls” featured in the Advocate!

by Ruth

We’re featured in a really cool article in the Advocate – 37 Alternative ‘Trans Anthems’ by Trans Musicians.


It’s pretty amazing to have “Balls” listed alongside awesome songs from the likes of CN Lester, Against Me!, Coyote Grace, Athens Boys Choir, The Cliks and so many more. Thanks to Mya Adriene Byrne and Mitch Kellaway for the mention!
