U.K. art rock band Babble release their second album "Bread & Circuses" on Out of the Box Records via Musik and Film.
The Romans gave the masses free wheat and grand spectacle to distract them from their poverty, subdue reason and reflective thought. It worked. For a time. 21st Century rulers have a similar problem with the poor of today and the cracks in their schemes are widening by the day.
UK band “Babble” and artist John Taylor have collaborated on the “Bread and Circuses” project as their response to the challenges unfolding as authorities and established ways of thought lose their hold over the sleepers who are waking up in increasing numbers. Art, music, words and beauty are shining through humanity, giving power back to those willing to reject manufactured culture and apathy.
“Bread and Circuses” is a reflection of those changes – each song takes an aspect of the struggle to be an authentic individual and explores it with hypnotic music, rich language and song and the powerful original artwork of Worcester-based artist, John Taylor
The shows first outing was at the Midlands Arts centre as part of the Birmingham Arts festival and Babble are now fixing dates for the 2013 tour. Come and take a few bites of the bread; as for those who ask for more…..learn to bite the hand that feeds you...
