Release Notes

Upbeat and unapologetic this is a double-A-side single raising funds for (and awareness of) The Pankhurst Centre/Manchester Women’s Aid. Why? Because gender equality is not a ‘political viewpoint’ it is a human necessity and in 2018 (100 years since the first UK General Election where women were allowed to vote) there is a distinct lack of social progress. The Pankhurst Centre/Manchester Women’s Aid are working tirelessly to correct this without government funding. Objectification within Popular Music is part of the problem. ‘I’m Real’ addresses the smothering nature of a controlling relationship, ‘I Don’t Want Your Attentions’ is about sexual harassment in the workplace. Energetic and catchy music with meaning and purpose.

Band Bio

Formed in Manchester UK in 1989 by John Armstrong (guitars/vocals/songwriting). Underground rock veterans The Speed Of Sound collide a 1960’s influence with ‘The Now’ creating an atom-smashing, DIY, NewWave, NoWave, NuWave, Post-Punk, Power-Pop, Psych-out. The lineup is currently Kevin Roache on bass guitar (since 1993) and

Ann-Marie Crowley on vocals, guitar and percussion (since 2015), plus an assortment of drummers; Anthony ‘Eddy’ Edwards plays on ‘I’m Real / I Don’t Want Your Attentions’. Fiercely independent, The Speed Of Sound exist in spite of The Music Industry, rather than because of it and speak from outside its grasping tentacles.
