Captain Ska GE2017 Liar Liar

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Liar Liar GE2017 knocks Bieber off iTunes top spot

Thursday 1st June 2017

A SONG branding Theresa May a “liar” is so popular it knocked [Canadian] superstar Justin Bieber off the top spot of the iTunes charts.

The hit Liar Liar GE2017 by Captain Ska slams the Prime Minister for her litany of lies in speeches and interviews.

Samples include her stating that she would not call a snap general election, followed by a chorus of “she’s a liar, liar, liar.”

The tune briefly became the most downloaded iTunes track yesterday, ousting Bieber’s remix of Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s Despacito off the top spot.

All proceeds from Captain Ska’s song — promoted by the People’s Assembly Against Austerity (PAAA) campaign group — sold before June 8 will be donated to foodbanks across the country.

But radio stations have been accused of banning the song for refusing to play it. BBC Radio 1 said: “We do not ban songs or artists, however our editorial guidelines require us to remain impartial and the UK is currently in an election period so we will not be playing the song.”

PAAA has organised a protest tomorrow night calling on the BBC to play the track at 4pm, BBC Broadcasting House, London, W1A 1AA.

You can download the song here.

This music video is called The ClashCapital Radio (live at the Belle Vue, Manchester, UK – 15. November 1977).

That song is about Capital Radio; one of the stations which are now censoring the Captain Ska song. Contrary to the BBC, Capital FM cannot hide for their censorship behind ‘impartiality’ rules, being a commercial station.
