Aoife Ruth (of The Annulments) sez:
With the week that’s in it, what with the Budget and the general squeeze, we thought ye might like this song. It’s called ‘Bank Failures’ and a guy called Bob Miller wrote it about the Wall Street Crash of ’29.
This is a video of us singing it at the Black Letters and Ballads night last month. Every month, performers have to find songs on a certain theme and at the last one, the theme was ‘Hard Times’ so this seemed pretty suitable! If it was written yesterday about the current mess we’re in I don’t think it could be more apt.
