Thursday 23rd November 2017 saw the online release of Nettlemouth's debut track 'Occupy' featuring Lara Smiles of 'The Aussie Pink Floyd' and Greg Sams, author of 'The State Is Out of Date', porized Chaos Theory, inventor of the 'Veggie Burger' and experienced protester. Both a ing line up and release date given that the track was inspired by recent events at Standing Rock Indian Reservation, North Dakota.
'Occupy' hit the BBC Introducing air waves several times this year with presenter Linda Serck of BBC Radio Berkshire describing it as both an "Earth-Pounding-ly brilliant track" and "an absolute banger!".
Nettlemouth's video production also made it's debut with the official video launched on the Nettlemouth YouTube channel. This potent combo of audio and visual skills were honed in during Nettlemouth's years as a studio engineer for world renowned and award-winning producer Youth (The Orb, The Verve, Killing Joke, Lee 'Scratch Perry', Paul McCartney...).
After departing Youth's and joining the Wolrd in witnessing the situation in North Dakota unfold, inspiration struck and Nettlemouth decided on alchemical action. Thus 'Occupy' came to be. Now with thanks to Skyride Records and Believe Distribution you too can experience this for Indigenous justice and feel the Nettlemouth manifestation rumble you through to your roots.
