“Pretty Fucking Sick Of It All”

This is a great song.  I’ve always been a fan of Joanna Gruesome, but after the shake-up, I was afraid they were done for.  Guess what?  They ain’t.  The band’s new line up features two amazing and inspiring women, Kate Stonestreet (formerly of queer punks Pennycress) on melodic vocals/shouting/screaming and Roxy Brennan (of Two White Cranes and Grubs) on melodic vocals/keyboard, joining Owen Williams (guitar/vocals), George Nicholls (guitar), Max Warren (bass) and Dave Sandford (drums).   This is the first single released by the the line-up.  I love their mix of noise punk/pop sensibilities.  The band states that “Pretty Fucking Sick Of It All” is about:

“…being pursued by intelligence operatives and is partly set in the Welsh village of Llangrannog. It is influenced by our recent U.S tour, during which the CIA took a special interest in the group’s movements.”

All I know, it is a great song by a great group.  Get the mosh pit ready.
