Ridicule for the media from Riskee

Following on from their extremee piss take of rightwing Brexiters that was Blue Jacket, Riskee and the Ridicule are back with a new tune that casts their critical eye on the media.

“Backwords 2” is a song about the influence of the media on the general public, how they can be so easily swayed by spun truths and false words,” explains front man Scott Picking. “The close-minded approach to the world we live in has to be torn up. It’s less like a sequel to “Backwords” and more like a progression. We’re a different band who have got better at what we do, this felt like a way to showcase that with different dynamics and new wordplay. Right now, it’s a frustrating and limiting time to be in a band: travel restrictions from the mess that is Brexit still loom, too many venues are suffering or closing down, and we miss playing live. ‘Backwords 2’ put those feelings into a direct song.”
