Skunk Anansie Release Furious New Song “Piggy”
Skunk Anansie songs really only come in two categories — angry and sad.
Their new single, “Piggy,” falls squarely in the former category. And, no shock here, it’s friggin’ excellent. Like, it makes me wish I had a pair of steel-toed Doc Martens. I don’t know what I’d do with them, but that’s what the song makes me wish.
As to what, exactly, has Skunk Anansie so furious these days, vocalist Skin explains:
“If there’s one thing we’ve all learned over the past couple of years is that we cannot depend upon our governments to look after us. They seem to be unable to learn from the past and incapable of securing a decent future. This song was written in a moment of rage combined with bitter disillusionment. Brexit then a complete mis-handling of Covid, how the hell did we get to this?”
How the hell did we get to this, indeed. This song is exactly what the world needed to balance out the stupidity of that new Kid Rock track.
