THE BABES RELEASE ‘LITERALLY A SINGLE’

Hardcore-Crust-Celtic-Punk-Rock!

Totally unique London band The Babes invented their own genre and there really is no other band like them. Hardcore Anarcho-Punk with bagpipes!

Celtic-Punk’s most hardcore band The Babes are  a pretty busy band so how they found the time to enter the studio I don’t know! They originally formed out of friendships made at the IMW sound engineering school in East London but a few comings and goings (it wouldn’t surprise me if they couldn’t keep up with The Babes heaving touring schedule!) including quite a long time as a 3-piece of drums, bagpipes and bass they have recruited Adriano on electric alongside Matt Ren Ex on bass, Animal on drums and Colombian born Mao Holiday on bagpipes and lead vocals. The song is called ‘Condemned’ and ‘Literally A Single’ is the name of the release and is sung almost entirely in Spanish. This will be the first of two singles The Babes will be releasing and buying the single directly from the band’s website will help them to press ‘BIG & HUGE’ their follow up album to Greetings From London from two years ago. The Babes are a DIY band and have always recorded, mixed, produced and mastered their songs themselves. In the near future the song will be made available on various platforms but we at London Celtic Punks always recommend to try and buy directly from the band. The few pennies that the likes of iTunes and Amazon let spill from their grubby little fingers won’t pay to help release the album so support the band by buying direct from them. As the boys put it 

“Thanks for your support and keep rockin’ XXX The Babes”

I AM NOT CONDEMNED
 
CONDEMNED A un pasaporte sin salida
CONDEMNED Del sagrado corazón
CONDEMNED Con sus políticos corruptos
CONDEMNED Y policías lame culos
CONDEMNED Divididos por estratos
CONDEMNED De su profundo letargo
CONDEMNED Duélale a quien le duela
CONDEMNED Son felices comiendo mierda
 
I AM NOT I’M NOT CONDEMNED
 
CONDEMNED Olvidan falsos positivos
CONDEMNED Y se halagan secando ríos
CONDEMNED El campesino olvidado
CONDEMNED Está Pidiendo paz a gritos
CONDEMNED El temor es su religión
CONDEMNED Y la guerra su grandeza
CONDEMNED Yo recuerdo carros bomba
CONDEMNED Mientras ellos generan amnesia
NO NO NO I’M NOT
NO NO NO I’M NOT
NO NO NO I’M NOT
NO NO NO I’M NOT CONDEMNED

As we said before in the review of their debut album Greetings From London The Babes may not be everyone’s cup of tea in the Celtic-Punk scene but for far too long we have feasted on the luscious sound of mandolins and fiddles and lilting Irish airs but sometimes you just need something to bang your head to. Their energy is boundless and infectious and proves again that just as you think the Celtic-Punk scene is all played out something comes along and pushes itself into view.
