Preachers and Pilgrims on Parade, getting ready for their morning raid, gathering on street corners armed to the teeth with the words of false prophets, speaking salvation to the soulless strangers they find on their door to door assault, holding people up at Bible point. Organised Religion.... Organised Crime. People wouldn't put up with drug dealers knocking on their door selling opium, (well some people might) so why should we put up with these witnesses of Jehovah peddling and pushing their drug of choice to the vulnerable who are looking for a way to cope with their life's slow suicide. We live our lives in worlds of our own making, where the only people that can change it are themselves. Drugs numb or kill the pain, religious dope brings nothing but false hope; There is no after life....just life. There are many ways of dealing with today, but they aint gonna come knocking on your door. It is up to people to find their own way, and without wanting to sound like Bono (further proof that there is no god, because if there was Bono would have fallen out of his aircraft the other day when the door opened mid-flight.) many “still haven't found what they are looking for.” Which is why on a Sunday I either don't answer any strangers knocks on the door, and if I do they are politely told to FUCK OFF!, unless they are a drug dealer!!

Please Enjoy Your Punk Rock Responsibility is the debut mini-album from Enemies Of Promise, a couple of fellas from Wolverhampton who are armed to the teeth with a fully loaded pistol of six killer tracks, their weapons of choice are; a couple of guitars, vocals and a drum machine, and they have their sights firmly trained on the usual suspects; politicians, bankers and anyone else that stands in the way of social justice. This is a righteous riot of a listen, I mean check out these titles.... Palace of The Mighty, Edge of War, Please Enjoy Your Punk Rock Responsibility, You Have The Right To Strike, My Heart Is Still Red, The Man In Authority....
The vocals deliver a throaty tunefull state of the nation address to the dispossessed. and disillusioned and anyone else that wants to listen and learn. The music is toe taping and fist in the air thumping Post Punk'n'Pop Rock. Guitars chug and chop over the rat a tat, tat of a machine gun drum machine, Less is definitely more because there are times across these six tracks when Enemies Of Promise have just as much power as say.... The Jam, SLF, or the Newtown Neurotics there are also some great Punk Rock Everly Bruthas vocal harmonies thrown into the mix. This is catchy and confident stuff....pure, simple and honest. Enemies Of Promise know the power of music and how it can change lives this album is a sound track for revolution, and it's one call up you should answer sign up at their facebook page, where you can find out details of how to get your punk responsibility, and trust me....you will enjoy it!

Doing something for a month in the aid of charity. I don't know if this is just a British thing, but we've had Stoptober (October) when the British people were encouraged to stop drinking/getting drunk for the whole month, now it's my personal unfavourite, Movember (November) when men are encouraged to grow a moustache for the month. For fucks sake what's wrong with people, why do they feel the need to do something because they have been told to. I mean give up drinking grow a moustache do whatever, but do it whenever, not when some campaign tells you to do it, and give money to charity when you want to with no gimmicks attached. As for all the people that do follow the calls because they feel they have some social obligation to do so, someone needs to wake them up by throwing a bucket of ice cold water over them....no wait up they've probably already done that to themselves with the 'ice bucket challenge' In the bigger picture sometimes it is the small things that matter, fascism comes in many disguises,and people do stupid and dumb things if they are brainwashed enough.
