about

Our singer Danny wrote the lyrics, and says this:
“Watching Pussy Riot getting bundled into a cage-like cell
through my hangover eyes, I thought back to the night
before when I had a party for one and did all my housework
wearing nothing but red lipstick and cider. Realised most of
my lyrics were ’bout drunkeness, silliness or bad, bad boys.
I wished that I could be more political, I wished my music
could be a force of change. It’s not, of course, but this song
is a tribute to Pussy Riot and their bravery, and also ’bout
drunk naked cleaning.”

Like Danny says, we are a bunch of wallys who try our best,
but often fall short of embodying the kind of big-balls-attitude
of Pussy Riot. We are a raucous rabble who like the party
too much, but our hearts are in the right place.

The melody was already written by our keyboardist, I wrote the
lyrics jumping around my flat. Home is important, a safe
space to be alone and be silly or sad or secret.

There is such a contrast in the sense that The Meow Meows have the freedom to be buffoons, to tour, to write lyrics without considering the consequences, and Pussy Riot simple
peaceful musical protest has led to them being ripped apart from their young families and suffering huge hardships

from RE​:​connection - Pussy Riot Project, released December 15, 2013
Brighton-based girls and boys with a shared love of ska
and drinking until incapacity. Supporting the likes of T he
Temptations, Reel Big Fish, King Blues, and The Skints, the
band’s sound is a fresh and happy muddle of sixties garage
and dirty pop with a belly-rumbling rocksteady rhythm,
blistering hot horns and heartthumping keyboards, topped
off by two all-dancing, all-harmonising female singers armed
with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and killer stage presence. Still
staunchly independent, entirely self-managed and self-financed,
T he Meow Meows are looking forward to writing
their third album and plentiful summer festival appearances
