The Last Gang - "Gimme Action" Fat Wreck Chords - A BlankTV World Premiere!

Artist City, State, Country: Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

Artist Bio: The year is 2021. America is still fighting its way through an ongoing pandemic, currently fueled by the ignorance of millions who have decided science isn’t good enough for them. Countless lives have been lost or disrupted by an inefficient government loaded with corrupt politicians, egged on by snake oil salesmen who are inexplicably given nightly platforms on cable TV or allowed to spread their disinformation through social media.
Make no mistake: Rome is burning. We are fiddling.
Pissed off yet? So is The Last Gang. This California punk quartet had big plans for 2020, with a seemingly endless string of tour dates keeping them on the road in support of their Fat Wreck Chords debut, 'Keep Them Counting'. Crowds were getting bigger. Sing-alongs were getting louder. Spirits were getting higher. The only problem? The band was trying to write a new record simultaneously, and it wasn’t going well.
“Our downfall is we want to tour a lot, but it’s sometimes hard for us to write because it takes so much out of me,” begins frontwoman Brenna Red. When the world came to a standstill in March 2020, it was actually a blessing in disguise for Red. She could finally focus on everything happening outside of their tour van — and she quickly realized it wasn’t pretty.
“Because COVID happened, I was allowed to not rush, and we stepped back and re-wrote songs,” she explains. “Then I went to Fat Mike’s to write with him, and he challenged me to write more Clash-influenced reggae. I listened to 'London Calling' to get inspired, but I think Joe Strummer once said if you want to be inspired, don’t listen to your idols — listen to your idols’ idols. So I also listened to a lot of Toots and The Maytals and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and a ton of Trojan Records compilations.”

Song Lyrics: "Gimme Action"

Powder keg they have spawned
Lit a fuse under the new dawn
Voices turn into force
Riding high among the obtuse
The world is dying to evolve
From the old agendas of hate and fear
Sick inside
Banality of evil has thinned its welcomed ride
Gimme action, pregnant with the dissent brawn
Solitude, sure footed steadfast to unrest
Gimme action, gimme action
Solitude, sure footed steadfast to unrest
Civil reaction, calling all hands
Breaking point has passed
Humanist faction abolishing autocrats
A petrifaction, we are bred of what they've sown from decades
Pressed into hardened resolutes
Now the world is dying to evolve
From the old agendas of hate and fear
Sick inside
Banality of evil has thinned it's welcomed ride
Gimme action, pregnant with the dissent brawn
Solitude, sure footed steadfast to unrest
Gimme action, gimme action
Solitude, sure footed steadfast to unrest
Substituting the bleak dividing monologue
With commonality up against a demagogue
Thread in hand, a pursuit of equitability
I can't, I can't
Over and over your modern story changes dialogue
Public execution in a camouflage
Never again, never give in we say
I can't, I can't
Push and protest
Depose the fascists
Eradicating bigotry
Uprooting systematic seeds
Domestic unrest spreading fire fast
Ticking time bomb they've cultivate and manifest
Gimme action
Meta klaxon
A unifaction
Gimme gimme action
Gimme action, pregnant with the dissent brawn
Solitude, sure footed steadfast to unrest
Gimme action, gimme action
Solitude, sure footed steadfast to unrest
