Primal Scream Are Too Tame For The Sex Mad Conservatives
ANORAK loves it when minted rockers talk about politics. This week Primal Scream were upset that the Conservative Party’s Home Secretary Theresa May walked off the stage at the Tory Party conference to the strains of Rocks.
The band issue a statement in Q magazine:
“Primal Scream are totally disgusted that the Home Secretary Theresa May ended her speech at the Tory Party conference with our song ‘Rocks’.How inappropriate. Didn’t they research the political history of our band? Hasn’t she listened to the words? Does she even know what getting your rocks off means? No. She is a Tory; how could she?”
How can a Tory know what getting your rocks off means? Well, since the band brought it up, what does the Party of John Profumo, Stephen Milligan, Boris Johnon, Alan Clark, Anthony Lambton, John Major, David Cameron, Jeffrey Archer, David Mellor, Tim Yeo… know about sex and rugs and rock ‘n roll?
It’s a wonder the Tories don’t find Rocks a bit, you know, tame.
Which they might have. It turns out that the song played was Bohemian Like You by the Dandy Warhols. That includes the line:
Wait. Who’s that guy just hanging at your pad?
He’s lookin’ kinda bummed.
Anyone want to help with the list..?
