The English protest-rock quartet White Ape have always been a delight to feature over the years since first appearing on the site back in 2014.
Word arrives that Sotones Records – A label based in Southampton (England) are set to release the LP SOTONES10 on the 3rd of November to celebrate their 10th anniversary. I know, I know you are wondering where is this preamble leading…
…well the thirteenth track on that eighteen track album is by White Ape with a gnarling saw against egregious consumption in a track which once again displays their ability to deliver engaging music whilst wrestling with issues of societal iniquities with Eat More Meat.
It is often possible to appreciate the integrity of musical output even, though perhaps even more importantly, when the context of a song is in condemnation of ones own lifestyle and not feel in the least flustered by so doing. Music that stands on its own traction with fortitude of message always deserves space, to my mind – and as a meat eater, it is with some pleasure that once again I tempt you to the delicacy that is White Ape.
