about

Post industrial groove in C for Chicken feed factory and F for factory farming. The village of Stoke Ferry in Norfolk has been blighted by a huge Chicken feed factory casting it's decaying gloom over the heart of the village for years. Meanwhile factory farmings sheds of atrocity, pepper Norfolk's horizons, lanes and backyards to make a few bucks.The Chickens are cheap and so are the accompanying jobs we are fobbed off with. We deserve better and so do the chickens. The band put this altogether with 3.38 minute rant, referencing 70's pop and punk on the way

lyrics

My eyes are crusted up with dust.
And breathe it in, it seems I must.
The permitted particulates you just can’t trust.
Will surely turn my lungs to rust.
Your emission submission barely meets the minimum requirements by law of the government commission.
Just enough is not good enough.
Cough, cough, cough, cough it up.

Please could you tell me the source of that smell?
Your ingredient expedient is making me unwell.
Agrochemicals in the dust and the grain.
Pharmaceuticals, washed down the drain.
Every town has it’s dark satanic mill, it pollutes the air and makes me ill.
So come on Liz Truss, this is just and you must just support our cause or be damned and cussed.

There’s 2muchAg in the air. The two sisters of Boporan they just don’t care
There’s 2muchAg in the air. The two sisters of Boporan they just don’t care
The two sisters of Boporan they just don’t care.

They say there’s only one F in Stoke Ferry.
And it’s got an elfin’ great big chicken feed factory.
Cheap beer and job security, that’s the story of yesterday.
The profits have all been funnelled away.
More noise and dirt every effing day.
This “village is riven” Mrs Coates did say.
Our post industrial legacy.

It’s “profits over people” and the politics of meat.
The price is neat, it’s “chirpy chirpy cheep cheep”
Chicks are de beaked coz they stress and peck.
The merchandise must be protected.
We don’t see the sheds where the sun don’t shine.
Or the final trip to the production line.
Hormonally grown with antibiotic spice.
I wouldn’t eat it, it wouldn’t be nice.

This sell by date it seems to be wrong.
This dirt cheap meats been around too long,
In the tooth. And you’ve hidden the proof.
Now it’s time to, “tell us the truth”
And your word is your bond and your bonds are junk,
food business, for years it has stunk.
You’ve made a killing, but your chick stocks down.
The chicken king is loosing his crown.

There’s 2muchAg in the air. The two sisters of Boporan they just don’t care
There’s 2muchAg in the air. The two sisters of Boporan they just don’t care
The two sisters of Boporan they just don’t care.
