'Blood Monster', powerful political track out on March 15


About nine months ago, I wrote about this coming song here!

The track features musicians from This Is The Kit, Portishead, Radiohead and Massive Attack, and was produced independently in Bristol U.K.

Strong message! Great collaboration.

Goodrich - 'Blood Monster'






The video for 'BLOOD MONSTER' was written and directed by Goodrich and Bristol filmmaker Albion Maynard. 

Filmed in and around Bristol, it features Julian Landau, lead singer of local legends Zen Hussies, as a suit-wearing, briefcase-brandishing 'man in black', travelling door to door through suburbia, hypnotising ordinary people into a frenzy of hatred, division, and violence. 

The film plays out as a nightmare, with the action serving as a metaphor for state and corporate coercion, be it the rise of right-wing conservatism, warmongering, populism, fascism, etc.

Produced by Bristol singer-songwriter Jimmy Goodrich, 'BLOOD MONSTER' is a special project in aid of STOP TRUMP COALITION.

A few words from Jimmy:

"As some of you know, for the last 18 months I have been secretly working on a benefit single and video for Stop Trump Coalition (stoptrump.org.uk) as they organise ‘the largest demonstration in British history’ ahead of Trump’s visit to the U.K. in 2018."

THE LYRICS 

Blood monster 
Murder-man
Drag your blade 
Across the land

Blood monster 
Where are you going? 
Your eyes are red 
Your fangs are showing 

Blood monster 
Oh Bringer of fire
All the bloodshed in this world 
Can never slake your dark desire 

Now every trace of love 
Has disappeared 
Erased by hate 
Replaced by fear
And the blood monster 
Draws ever near 
To drown the world in fire and tears

Warmonger 
You beat the drums
And place your bets on either side
Blood monster
you feed on the young
you set their anger running wild 

Your hunger for oil and gold 
Is never sated or satisfied
Your heart's grown old and cold 
And yet you don't lay down and die

Now every trace of love
Has disappeared 
Erased by hate
Replaced by fear 
And the blood monster draws ever near
To bathe the world in fire and tears
