Behind The Tracks: HOLY POPES - DBT (Single) (2022)

Commenting on the track, guitarist Dominic Knight (ex-The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster) says: “Our entire system is based around debt. From using sea shells as markers of goods that are owed, to the paper money we hold in our hands being merely trusted in an idea of wealth, rather than having actual value. These ideas always affect the poorest in society and we see it so often with money lending, overdrafts, and borrowing.”

“Promoting ideas of climbing the social ladder through materialism and wealth means people can no longer wait for the next car or phone, they have to borrow in order to obtain it today. This capitalist trick has us blame each other for our ills, and distracts us from the billions that are accrued by the very few, leaving behind them a trail of poor bodies, environmental destruction, and social instability. Debt is slavery. Capitalism is organized crime.”

‘Holy popes’—the irony of giving godly importance to man-made ideas. Systems of oppression are created to make us subservient—to religion; capitalism; to the patriarchy.

“It’s a farce, and music is a machine that kills fascism and bigotry,” enthuses Knight. “Let’s dance whilst we overthrow harmful systems.”
