She Drew the Gun has summed up this week in a spiky nutshell: ‘Trouble Every Day’, out today, is our single of the week.
The song is a rewriting of Frank Zappa’s original, as She Drew the Gun/Louisa Roach explains:
Frank Zappa wrote it based on the TV coverage of the Watts riots in LA back in the 60s, so I rewrote some of the lyrics to reflect what I’ve seen reported on the TV in more recent times, from English riots to the Extinction Rebellion protests. It takes a look at the issues that are facing us at the moment from the rise of the far right to the threat of climate change and the role the global media corporations play in supporting neoliberal ideology.
Catch her live next week at Last Train Home Festival
Can we see her on a gig with She Makes War soon please?
