PRESS RELEASE: Swindler, Liar, Shagger, Cheat
New video and single from south-west England based art rock band Littermouth
Performing and recording original self-penned material, Littermouth deliver a blend of cerebral art rock with added groove. Thought-provoking lyrics are intertwined with off-the-wall lead lines, dirty bass and driving drums. The new single and video from the south west England-based band ‘Swindler, Liar, Shagger, Cheat’ is released on August 17th.
Lead vocalist, Jon Price: “Swindler, Liar. Shagger, Cheat is about the immoral and shocking lengths to which the tabloid press go in order to sell more papers. From The Sun’s ‘1 in 5 Brit Muslims’ sympathy for Jihadis’ front page headline to the hacking of Milly Dowler’s voice mail by The News of the World. But the real message of the song is that it’s us the great British public that buy these papers and buy more of them the more scandalous and sensationalist the headlines are.”
Jon adds: “Elements of fear, anger and injustice weave their way through my lyrics. I don’t really go for writing happy love songs.”
Littermouth are: Jon Price – lead vocal; Julie Meikle – backing vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboards; Andy Lloyd – drums & percussion; Andy Young – bass; and Steve Shelton – guitars, synth guitar, backing vocals.
Formed in 2012 Littermouth have released a number of songs and music videos and already receive regular daily air play on radio stations all over the world. These include BBC introducing, X Radio, 365 Radio Network, Dr John’s Unsigned Rock Surgery and many more.
The single, along with other tracks on the band’s self-titled album, were recorded and produced by the band themselves and mastered by three time Grammy Award nominated Andy Jackson. Andy was head sound engineer for the last two Pink Floyd albums and was responsible for the digital re-mastering of Floyd’s legendary album Dark side of the Moon.
The single and album are available for purchase via the band’s website
