about

The outcome of three years learning how to play. This album is intended as a demonstration of possibility, not just an object for passive consumption. We made this. Now it's your turn.

about

Not Right Coventry, UK

We are: punk attitude, riot grrrl aesthetic, queer feminist rage, the politic of “people” before “profit”. We are the lead guitarist who doesn't solo, the trombonist playing percussion, the singer who just shouts. We are hatred, we are joy, we are noise for the sake of noise. We are Not Right. ... more

Track Name: Tory Scum
When we marched a cry went up
From Horse Guards to Millbank
The papers patronised our anger
Called us a throwback
But when we chanted "tory scum"
Our rage was well-informed
We knew their game: greedy intent
An ideological war

Out out tory scum
Out out tory scum
Out out tory scum
Tory scum tory scum

Privatising education
Selling hospitals
Destroying jobs, and benefits
For those who need them most

Out out tory scum
Out out tory scum
Out out tory scum
Tory scum tory scum

Don't hate disabled, immigrants
But pin the blame on your true foe
Your enemy are tory scum
And yellow-bellied sycophants

Out out tory scum
Out out tory scum
Out out tory scum
Tory scum tory scum
Track Name: Balls
I don't miss my balls
I don't miss my balls
Oh so fragile stabbing pain
I don't miss my balls

I don't miss my dick
I don't miss my dick
What a pointless bundle of nerves
I don't miss my dick

I don't miss my chest
I don't miss my chest
Really boring breasts are more fun
I don't miss my chest

I don't miss the boy's club
I don't miss the boy's club
Sexist bullshit all the time
I don't miss the boy's club

I don't miss my voice
I don't miss my voice
Oh so hateful droning flatly
I don't miss my voice

I stand before you whole
Stand before you whole
Woman ain't a man missing bits
Stand before you whole
Track Name: This Revolution is Not Complete
When abortion’s still illegal in Northern Ireland
When the wealth gap is still ever wider
When we still don’t have equal pay
When you still get bullied for being gay
When sexist jokes are still let loose
And irony’s used as an excuse
When the Coalition try to take us back
It’s time for a feminist counterattack

We’ve just won battles
Not the war
Time for us to rise some more
We’ve just won battles
Not the war
Time for us to rise

When rape victims still get the blame
When right-wing tabloids fan the flame
When policemen commit sexual assault
But are never found to be at fault
When public services are cut
And women’s shelters are out of luck
When the Coalition try to take us back
It’s time for a feminist counterattack

We’ve just won battles
Not the war
Time for us to rise some more
We’ve just won battles
Not the war
Time for us to rise

So reclaim the night
Slutwalk
Keep up the fight
Never balk
Raise some funds
Occupy
Gonna be a feminist ’till I die

Win the battles
Then the war
Time for us to rise some more
Win the battles
Then the war
Time for us to rise
Win the battles
Then the war
Time for us to rise some more
Win the battles
Then the war
Time for us to rise
Track Name: Debate Club Wanker
There was a wanker on the bus
She sat there in a suit
Explained her tagline without fuss:

"We believe everyone has the right to be unequal."
- Margaret Thatcher

It's ideological don't you know
It's ideological don't you know

There was a wanker on the bus
He sat there in a suit
Explained his tagline without fuss:

"If do we do act, we must do so with a clear conscience and a strong heart."
- Tony Blair

It's ideological don't you know
It's ideological don't you know

There was a wanker on the bus
He sat there in a suit
Explained his tagline without fuss:

"Calm - calm down dear. Calm down. Calm down. Listen - listen to the doctor. Calm down and listen to the doctor."
- David Cameron

It's ideological don't you know
It's ideological don't you know

Real life is an abstraction
Policy impacts a distraction
Debating club all inaction
Get real then we'll see some traction

It's ideological don't you know
It's ideological don't you know
It's ideological don't you know
It's ideological don't you know
Track Name: Freedom of Speech
My body is not up for debate

When your speech takes our freedom my friend
Then we'll hit right back
'Cos what you say makes it okay
for bigots to beat assault and maim
for authorities to ignore our pain
for medical malpractice
to continue without shame

My gender is not up for debate

When one in three try suicide
it's not theoretical bear in mind
the impact of your hateful slurs
your shit-filled piss stain fucking words

My life is not up for debate
Fuck your freedom of speech
You unrepentent stinking shower of cunts
Track Name: Intersectionality Song
Had a troubled childhood
Something on my mind
Pain through teens, self-hatred grows
I know my freakish means

Now I have the power
Standing on this stage
Look at me, look at me
Perform transgender rage

Had a loving family
Went to a good school
Had it so damn lucky
Abled body, abled mind too

Middle-class white girl
Standing on this stage
Look at me, look at me
Perform transgender rage

This complex is performance
Such privilege is a pain
Even hard-offs have it easy
In their own way

This one is for all those
Who can’t be on this stage
Look at me, look at me
Perform transgender rage

This one is for all those
Who can’t be on this stage
Look at me, look at me
Perform transgender rage

Transgender rage
Transgender rage
Transgender rage
Transgender rage

Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team
Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team
Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team

What a sight for eyes to greet
Flowers strewn across the street
Some drunk bugger dug them up
To sadly on the pavement flop

Then down the road comes shining bright
Orange lights to pierce the night
A special rescue team arrives
To set the flowerbed to rights

Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team
Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team
Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team
Emergency Flowerbed Rescue Team

The workers are so very swift
Their rapid gardening is a gift
To those whose spirits gain a lift
From flowers maintained not with thrift

But on the route to my abode
No streetlight shines upon the road
The council says it costs too much
Is it unsafe? Just a touch!

Track Name: Never Back Down
As we began to sing our songs
It’s quickly clear that someone’s wrong
He shouts in safety from inside
The corners of his rigid mind
And physical corners, nightclub booth
A sexist coward, sexist coward

And so we holler back of course
We stand our ground determined force
But we’re to blame for our response
We’re to blame, we’re to blame

But we won’t back down
Never back down
We won’t back down
Never back down
Yeah, we won’t back down
Never back down
We won’t back down
Never back down

They cut out righteous anger short
They took us aside for a talk
Our attitude almost caused a fight
Just shut up and do what’s right
Pretend that nothing happened
And the nice security men will look after you

And so we argued back of course
We stand our ground determined force
But we’re to blame for our response
We’re to blame, we’re to blame

But we won’t back down
Never back down
We won’t back down
Never back down
Yeah, we won’t back down
Never back down
We won’t back down
Never back down
Yeah, we won’t back down
Never back down
We won’t back down
Never back down
Never back down
Never back down
Track Name: The Facilitation of Lawful Protest
Holding kids for hours in the cold
Facilitation of lawful protest

Rubber bullet threats abound
Facilitation of lawful protest

Beating grannies
Smashing cars
Groping fannies
Defending grass

All for law and law for all

Facilitation of lawful protest
Facilitation of lawful protest

Policeman doing a bailiff’s job
Facilitation of lawful protest

Dragging Christians from a church
Facilitation of lawful protest

Beating grannies
Smashing cars
Groping fannies
Defending grass

All for law and law for all

Facilitation of lawful protest
Facilitation of lawful protest
Track Name: My Body
Mine is the body of fantasies, dreams
Shemale pin-up, late night TV
Mine is the body you hate to love
Wanking alone, I warm your blood

Get off my body, it’s mine and my own
Get off my body, not yours to bone
Get off my body, sick fantasy’s yours
Get off my body, and I’ll get off yours

Mine is the body of vomit and fear
My existence a trap with you to ensnare
This life I was given has tarnished me whole
Am I now unsexed, unattractive to all?

Get off my body, it’s mine and my own
Get off my body, not yours to own
Get off my body, sick fantasy’s yours
Get off my body, and I’ll get off yours

I mean, come on
You’re a perverted arsehole
A blinkered bigot
Like I would want to fuck you anyway
