ROBIN GREY: “FUCK OFF BACK TO ETON”

It really is hot right now.. hot right now – it’s the new track from London’s very own Ukulele genius – Robin Grey… and all the kids at school are singing it.. apparently. The little rebels… “F*ck off Back to Eton”  was created after a run in with Cameron himself in a place called Alnwick. After getting over 25,000 hits on youtube in one day the video was then pulled offline. It is now back on vimeo.. Robin Grey say’s of the song:

“At the time, the song just came from the gut, but thinking about it in hindsight, I think Eton symbolises a lot of what is wrong with this country. We have a tiny clique of very over privileged men, with an over-inflated sense of entitlement and they still hold the status quo in terms of power, land and money.”

When questioned on his use of crass wording Grey, 36 states

“I didn’t know what to sing and the minute I started singing it (‘f*** off back to Eton’) I was like, that’s a bit crass, I thought I could do better than that. But I just kept on going, because it was coming from the heart.It’s lyrically crass, but people have connected with it. It wouldn’t have been my first choice., but what’s happened, has happened. It would be lovely if I wasn’t the person who sung to David Cameron on a ukulele, but there’s worse things I could be known for.”

Robin re-recorded the tune with his Nan as his backing dancer. Nice one Robin. I love it despite its crassness.. 😉

Restricted due to some ‘titillating(word of the day) scenes this video is a must watch. The track is Lies by mysterious trio Is Tropical who are producing some interesting work at the moment. It is the third release from their debut album ‘Native To’ on Kitsune…it’s one I shall be enforcing on some of my serial dater girlfriends… check it out here:

I’m also enjoying this mix from the talented DJ – Pete Carvell (Bad Life/Gash Digital). Bad Life is a label formed by autoKratz and their friends and the team are currently busy organising the Bad Life 1st Birthday European tour and they may be coming to a city near you soon so keep your eyes peeled. Having witnessed Autokratz perform on Naksan Beach in the deepest darkest wilderness of South Korea and seeing Pete perform in…the concrete jungle most of us know as er London I can assure you that the tour will be definitely be one to watch out for.
