WATCH: Norman Baker’s Reform Club’s hard-hitting song “Give War a Chance”

Norman Baker’s band, The Reform Club has a new album, Never Yesterday, out. Today, they release a very professional looking video.

Watch the hard-hitting song Give War a Chance which satirises the activities of a “peace envoy” and is published ahead of the Chilcott Report which we are sure will be published at some point this millennium. Norman plays the role of the envoy to absolute perfection. And there are tanks. Real tanks.

Of the song, Norman says:

A well-crafted three minute song can often say more than an hour-long speech, and I hope that is what we have put together with Give War A Chance. For the avoidance of doubt, I should say that the title is ironic. The events of 2003 were seismic in effect and the whole episode is unfinished business.

    Lol, good stuff! We don’t see a lot of older musicians so Norman’s band is a welcome contribution. I’m not saying there are no older musicians of course – but pop does have a big emphasis on youth and songs about youth.

    Art should be celebrated.

    Great stuff – carry on Norman (although I must say the Voice is a little optimistic in expecting Chilcott publication this millennium).
