NEW DEMO! LIFEFORM 281
Politicians (theyre Scum!)
The Glaswegian singer Joe F sounds like David Devant & His Spirit Wife, which is always a good thing, with added Mark E Smith styling aaahs.

The lyrics are a, er, politicised Devant too, mixed with a Carter USM level of blunt simplicity. All very cult, then, a rousing singalong for bored Chumbawumba fans.

"The List"

Lifeform 281 - think the Stooges with Alex Harvey on vocals. highly entertaining, the singer even getting his shirt off. Leading us to the finale. - ?

Bio

One does not come across an enigma of an artist that often, as in the case of joe-f. This Scottish good natured firebrand was the seminal creative motor powering his former band incarnation of Lifeform 281.

Now joe-f has shed his previous muse & expanded into an ever deepening arc of musical expression This is not to discount such post punk modern aesthetics as "Shoot Through The Stars" with it's wall of guitar buzz-drone. This nod to the ever present past & its accompanying wail had left joe-f's heart in outer space & outer mind.

Nor can the raucous & penetratingly insightful wail of "Politicians (they're scum!)" fade off into the blustering anthem of airwaves; With it's all too close to home tirade satire of media manipulation ; It's intended victim that of the lemming mentality that perpetuates the fraud & corruption of the unsavory arena of politics. One must see the humor as not to cry. After all, the truth does sting at times.

joe-f exudes a world weariness that would confound others & turns it into a catharsis of sound & vision. The art world & music arena need more bold souls like joe-f who are willing to pierce the veil of the politically correct in the world of music & the world of life. This type of courage to experiment & confound whilst reinventing oneself shows the tenacity of a visionary person of iconoclastic dynamics. Which is what joe-f is to those that can see below the surface appearance & into the deeper motivations of the soul.
