B Boys - I Want

"Non-essential" shops re-opened in the UK today. Of course all of the usual suspects were there, queueing outside to get the sweatshop leggings they'd been craving for the past 3 months, all lining up to pay obeisance to the culture of consumption. But I think more of us have quietly enjoyed this long spell of not shopping. To go so long without that itch of wanting has had a calming effect.

We've listened to B Boys before at Doklands. They're from New York and they play a very precise and unadorned sort of punk. Too smart and playful to be austere killjoys, their take on consumer culture is as humane as it is angry. I Want is taken from the album Dudu (2019).
