The Vile Assembly – World Premiere of the Band’s New Video.
The track is entitled ‘Suicide Feast’.
With thanks to the group and their representation, Just Listen To This is pleased to bring you the first showing of the act’s promotional video for this song, which reflects the members’ social consciousness and in particular here the plight of the homeless. We won’t spoil the impact of the footage but the link to the video is given below:
The song itself has a nagging sound highly evocative of early Bowie and perhaps moreso vintage Cockney Rebel in the nasal and insistent vocal. Below we give as much information as we can on the group and their slant on life. One to watch, we suggest.
Debut British punk-rock band, The Vile Assembly, were created solely to be the whistle-blowers on unjust society; their purpose to say what needs to be said through the universally understood medium of music. The band was created following a fortuitous meeting between three lifelong friends in a New York café, who decided that enough was enough and the troubles of the world needed to be voiced.
Although the friends, Paul Mason, Mark Webb and Mark Wainwright, had owned a music studio in Liverpool for two-decades, they’d never even contemplated making music of their own until that fateful day, until the avid conversation between them spurred on the conception of The Vile Assembly.
The seeds of The Vile Assembly’s ethos were planted over two decades ago, but lay dormant, waiting for the right time and agenda for their opinions to find a voice. A vocation to be a poet, Paul Mason (the band’s lyricist and vocalist) found everything that happened in the world asvile. Out of choice, he opted to live on the streets of Liverpool for a month so that he could experience destitution first hand. With no gap or respite, he repeated the experience in San Diego. The result was horrendous, but he inspired a batch of poems, the main being ‘The Lonely Tramp In Liverpool’.
(Many thanks to The Vile Assembly and Sam G)
