Love Me, I’m A Liberal’ tour.

‘Love Me, I’m A Liberal’ tour September / October 2016 Single out 28th October – new full band version Supports Carter USM’s Jim Bob in November / December Xtra Mile laureate Chris T-T will see out our annus horribilis with an autumn and winter of touring ‘Love Me I’m A Liberal’ and supporting good friend and national treasure Jim Bob. ‘Love Me I’m A Liberal’ is the second single from Chris’s tenth studio album 9 Green Songs. Adapted from the classic satire from US protest singer Phil Ochs, the song raises an iPad selfie to the safe-and-sound set quite happy to finger point, jeer and slacktivise for change from the internet and for the benefit of their right-on friends. 9 Green Songs refuses to toady up to expectations, from its title to its targets, its mood or even its musical genre. Its the album we deserve for the times we’ve come to expect at the moment we’ve realised we’ve become complacent. Chris’s enormous stack of songs, whether playing solo or with his accomplished fireb(r)and the Hoodrats, he can chart the last 16 years of British folly with bold storytelling, an incisive wit, and a little bit of good ole’ English crass. Whether brewing storms with piano chords, cutting folk songs from acoustic strings, or throwing the audience ire-laced sentences accompanied only by silence or pounding drums, the T-T live...
