Irish Punks Touts have recently revealed their new single Political People which is taken from their debut EP Sickening and Deplorable. The EP is available as of now from all digital retailers. Listen to Political People below.
Political People is a two minute sub culture anthem looking at how politics, the parties and the manifesto’s are so far removed from the youth.
Touts is one hell of a band name. Anyone who’s ever been to a gig in the UK will immediatally think of those bastards who sell overprised tickets for your favourite band. The Irish definition is slightly different and refers to someone who informs the police of illegal activities.
“Touts will be shot” an all to familiar slogan on the walls of Northern Irelands which has now been reclaimed by Touts, a rising Irish punk band from Derry consisting of teenagers Matthew Crossan, Jason Feenan and Luke McLaughlin.
It’s no wonder then that the band’s live reputation in Northern Ireland has spread like wild fire and has seen them sell out venues to masses of kids throughout the province without releasing any music. Touts have since played with Blossoms and Cabbage and have just played their first ever London show at The Camden Assebmly.
