Culture Vultures

This new video was created by Andy Squiff from his ever expanding sale library, its all fast edits and frenetic modernism. The song is my Led Zep homage [in my head] and its taken from the new album WHILE YOU STILL CAN, its available here and now – if you like loud guitars and old school guitar solos this might well resonate, lyrically it’s a rant against the Populists…or should that be Popularists?
