Give me drums... Give me bass... Setting up some... Track and trace...
A perfect introduction to South London's most prominent post-punk poets, Pimps Run Free is the first of 3 Crushed By Pimps releases scheduled for 2022 through Lights And Lines.
Pimps Run Free picks up the threads of the general dissonance and chaos of society explored in the debut album, bringing them up to date in the context of the pandemic. A mix of poetic nuance and anger with layers of satire and a whole load of NOISE really help hit the nail on the head with this one...
In guitarist Ben's own words:
“Pimps run free is a song about the pestilence virus times. Pimps will continue to run free regardless of pestilence virus times.”
An exclusive bonus remix is included as a B-Side for subscribers and anyone who buys the single on Bandcamp!
As part of one mammoth recording session in 2021 Crushed By Pimps recorded 9 brand new tracks, the remainder of which will be released on Lights And Lines this year across 2 new EPs - Space Between The Eyebrows and Battle of Britain Memorial Sausage.
Both will be available on CD and all Digital and Streaming formats over the coming months, and will include some more exclusive Bandcamp only surprises! More details including release dates, artwork, previews, and track listings will be announced soon!
