HARLOW’S Newtown Neurotics support tactical voting in the general election, with a revamped version of their 1982 song Kick Out The Tories.

Subtitled The Change We Need, the song was recorded in January and held back until the general election was called.

Speaking about the need to rerecord the song, singer Steve Drewett comments:

“The people of the United Kingdom are desperate for change, as it seems the very fabric of our country, our society, our communities, are crumbling before our very eyes.

“We think that rock music is at its best when it reflects the lives of its listeners, and that the reworking of our 1982 song ‘Kick Out The Tories’ does exactly that. The change we feel we need, is reflected in the change we have brought to this new version of our best known number, it is about renewal, is about hope, not hate”.

The Newtown Neurotics believe ‘Kick Out The Tories (The Change We Need)’ captures the zeitgeist of these troubled times and is therefore all the more powerful for it.

The song is available on all major streaming platforms and the video can be viewed on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3b_AYJ5aOg

I remember these guys playing outside the old town hall in the mid 80s. It was summer and the sound of birds filled the air. I love this song, kick up the tories. I hope the new version has got more cowbell on it.
