City

by Who Killed Nancy Johnson?

We're a four piece from Reading with a good reputation live but less so for recordings. We got fed with sterile, polite studios. So we spent £400 on DIY gear and booked a village hall in Oxfordshire for a weekend, and recorded an album. I SEE SIX is out June 2020. This is the second track.

Hey y'all! We're the afro-punk fusion band Mutha-Falcon and we stay hype. 'Ego Death' is a driving, high-energy, social commentary on what happens when small-town relevancy seeps into an individual's perception of themselves and consumes their state of mind. This is their attitude check.
