SFH - Mayor On Crack 45 (UP047)
Toronto’s “mayor” Rob Ford is an ignorant, corrupt, lying, bigoted, drunken buffoon of a drug addict without any sense of shame or decency, so it’s clearly incumbent upon us to issue a punk rock record attacking him personally.
Luckily, Warren Kinsella’s SFH have already recorded an appropriate response to this unfortunate episode in our city’s history, so we at Ugly Pop Vinyl are putting it on the 7” vinyl disc it deserves. Kinsella is known to aficionados of Canadian punk for his part in 1980’s HOT NASTIES EP (one of the greatest Canadian records of all time, already reissued on Ugly Pop and now in its fourth pressing), and to most of the country as a persistent thorn in the side of the national Right, from his days engineering Liberal election strategy and taunting the likes of Stockwell Day right up to his current role as progressive voice in public debate and author of last year’s “Fight the Right”, a manual for the rolling back of Canada’s conservative tide. His present band continue to churn out the sort of tuneful, topical but angry punk that the tasteless goons of Ford Nation would find decidedly unappealing.
Titled “Mayor On Crack” and backed with an especially sweet b-side surprise, this will be a limited pressed of 500 copies, 300 on cocaine white vinyl and 200 on blackmail black. Expect availability in approximately two months.
