This U.S. CD EP features four versions of the title song including an exclusive dub version by Youth not available elsewhere.
A truly inspired collaboration of post-punk grandees have come together to create the first great protest song of 2020, "A Very British Coup." This unabashedly political groove anthem takes aim at the hypocrisy and lies of the conservative campaign to pull the United Kingdom out of the European Union without ever mentioning Brexit. Led by Jah Wobble (PiL, Invaders of the Heart), "Coup" was recorded with renowned producer Martin "Youth" Glover (Killing Joke, The Orb, Brilliant) and features the legendary bassist's former PiL band-mates Richard Dudanski on drums and guitarist Keith Levene together with vocals from The Pop Group’s frontman Mark Stewart. Andrew Weatherall and Nina Walsh add loops to the proceedings. “The bass don pulls together his own post-punk Avengers for this anti-Brexit anthem and it’s a riot” Q magazine. “Wobble’s booming dub bass and Levene’s classic guitar skree sounding like a 21st century ‘Metal Box’ - this is already one of the tracks of the year” John Robb / Louder Than War Magazine.
