Welcome to the South Easy
Oh, man. Did I just say that someone else was Brighton’s finest? Changed my mind, guess I’m slippery like that. But truly, this verse from Gi3mo is incredible. His key line — “This land we’re in is full of twats and Gary isn’t having it/ Them angry, ratty, masochistic anglo-saxon activists” — rings especially clear and true in a week when here in the UK we’re forced to seriously contemplate the prospect of authoritarian Cruella De Vil lookalike Theresa May as our prime minister. In a more assured country the idea would be laughable but Giz is right. This is England. There’s a lot of angry masochists round here.
“My Own Shit” is from Joe Fire’s New Approach, The Mixtape which is streaming now on Soundcloud.
