In the first of a series of podcasts Bouquet of Dead Crows introduce the first two tracks on their new release Celestial as well as chatting to Sandy Mill, Gavin Chappell-Bates and Dave Hammond. The interviews were recorded before the lockdown so information about gigs and festivals are now incorrect.

There are of course more pressing issues than introducing a band right now as we struggle against a global pandemic, but, The English Disease, having readied themselves for their debut and with a run of gigs to follow that have had to be cancelled/postponed, decided to invite our trusty man with a camera Paul G Forshaw to their rehearsal room to document their sound.
A very new and exciting band. Treat this as a virtual gig……let us know what you think!
Bang Bang Maxwell -drums
Maximus Volume – guitar
Max Factor – voice
To clarify what is going on we invited Max Factor to introduce each of the songs in the set:
Is that punk rock enough for ya? : fed up with being told what ‘ I is ‘ and what ‘ I ain’t ‘ this is a riposte to the soulless fakes and plastic conservatives who uphold the rules of punk orthodoxy.
Sex Pigs : creepy middle aged men sliding right up tight against pretty young things at gigs
Crypto Queen : the One com scam , persuasive and lucrative but not for the investors
Bad Acid : what it says on the tin , life can be a bum trip and we all need to love and be loved.
Politic dog : there is no escape for any of us , politics, like it or not, affects every thing we do , for those who don’t care it may be time you did .
20 minutes in Mostar : a memory , a true tale of visiting a country on the brink of war and playing a game of football with innocent children , did they survive the horror that awaited them ?
