about

Bread and Circuses 2012
Power concedes nothing without a demand.
THE ROMANS gave the masses free wheat and grand spectacle to distract them from their poverty, subdue reason and reflective thought. It worked . For a time.
21st Century rulers have a similar problem with the poor of today and the cracks in their schemes are widening by the day.
Uk band “Babble” and artist john taylor have collaborated on the “Bread and Circuses” project as their response to the challenges unfolding as authorities and established ways of thought lose their hold over the sleepers who are waking up in increasing numbers.
Art, music, words and beauty are shining through humanity, giving power back to those willing to reject manufactured culture and apathy.
“Bread and Circuses” is a reflection of those changes – each song takes an aspect of the struggle to be an authentic individual and explores it with hypnotic music, rich language and song and the powerful original artwork of Worcester -based artist ,John Taylor
The shows first outing was at the Midlands Arts centre as part of the Birmingham Arts festival and Babble are now fixing dates for next year’s tour . Prior to that, a special end of 2012 event has been finalised for Saturday November 10th at the Worcester Arts Workshop, Sansome Street, Worcs as a special album launch event of “bread and circuses” (triple gate fold digi pak with 16 page booklet of john taylor’s artwork for each song). Come and take a few bites of the bread; as for those who ask for more…..learn to bite the hand that feeds you……..

about

BABAL England, UK

One speaks and a thousand misunderstand
where millions are silent and a thunderous applause erupts
where chatter overwhelms humility and gossip destroys worlds
the tongues wag, the ears flap and the mind creates a wall
everything has been said but no one has understood
talking with conviction and concluding that knowledge is easy and effects a multitude of expanding smokescreens around truth
