Ahead of the release of new album ‘Western Culture’ next month, Kiran Leonard has shared new track ‘Legacy Of Neglect’!
The 8-and-a-half minute epic follows on from previous singles ‘Paralysed Force’ and ‘Unreflective Life’ and features Let’s Eat Grandma on backing vocals.
Of the track, Kiran says: “‘Legacy of Neglect’ is chiefly about two things. Culture, and the weird dual meaning of the word: how it’s a concept necessarily in constant flux, in dialogue with a rapidly transforming society, yet also one that many people regard as some thing static and possessed, a ‘heritage’ you can draw on when the world seems precarious and alien and antagonistic.
He also added: “Secondly, history and class: bad analyses of terrible socio-political developments from people who should know better, invariably ahistorical, patronising, disingenuous, devoid of empathy, etc. Let it be said that fascism never was, never will be, a popular movement; it has always been a creation and servant of the elite and the privileged. Consider the actual architects of bigoted violence, and the refuse of our sad histories. Consider where vulgarity actually comes from.”
