Order Grazie Governo via Pirates Press Records ( and The Bar Stool Preachers (

Grazie Governo (“Thank You Government”) is the album that everyone angry and frustrated with the current political situation has been waiting for. The intelligent and passionate lyrics are backed by the unique, catchy, and creative songwriting that this band is becoming known for. It truly exemplifies the band’s incredible talents and uniqueness, and the energy and commitment that these UK upstarts are turning so many heads with.

With the success of their 2016 debut album Blatant Propaganda, this very motivated group of friends got some unreal touring opportunities, and have traveled a LOT of miles sharing their tunes and energy with thousands and thousands of people—and they’re not letting up anytime soon. They’ve played big shows to stadiums filled with Germans, and legendary club shows filled to the brim with sweaty punks, rude boys & girls and fans of all ages—and it doesn’t matter who they are playing with, or who they are playing to, they impress everyone—and have a great time doing it! For the full experience, make the effort to see THE BAR STOOL PREACHERS live and better understand why so many people are hailing them as one of the best new bands around! This album, and their previous full-length speak volumes, but seeing this full package in the flesh truly proves that they are the real deal.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
