THE OTHERS - This Is For The Poor (CD Single)


"This is for all the kids who stand out in the crowd / This is for every disappointment /This is for anyone who’s been shoved around / This is for all the ones who stood up for themselves / This is for all the ones who had to fight for it all /This is for the poor and not you rich kids//"
This was a call to arms in 2004 by The Others, a bold and brash blast of post brit pop punk’n’roll. Think Libertines, The Paddingtons, The Parkinsons and you’ll get the idea. The Others were truly a peoples band, using text messaging and the internet to galvanise fans at guerrilla gigs on the zebra crossing outside Abbey Road studios and on a tube train. When I saw them live at The Scala in Kings Cross, by the end of their riotous set there were more of the audience on the stage than on the dance floor. One of the best gigs I’ve been to ever!!! And I’ve been to a few.

There's an interview on my blog for some background info. I think you would dig them. You can punt the link about as well. The songs are straight from the band with their permission to download.
