More info. on the band and the upcoming single:
“Death Of A Nation is about watching our nations die through cultural corrosion – urban alienation, religious fanaticism, racism, a brainless media – at the same time being part of that death, being responsible for it somehow, but not knowing how to change anything - and finding a voice that can be heard” explains JG.
The Weapons’ story starts in the sleepy seaside town of Penarth in Wales, where brother/sister rappers JG and Georgia G grew up (along with their other sibling, recording artist Jem). After relocating to London with the band last year they unleashed their debut single ‘Terrorist Youth’ to critical acclaim.
Before the end of the year, W.O.M.B had built up a loyal fanbase through their own gigs and Radio 1’s ‘In New Music We Trust’ tour. Using the pennies saved from their day jobs (which range from chef to porn music producer), the band also made their second trip to America for two sweaty gigs at Los Angeles’ Viper Room and Space Lounge.
Banged up at Her Majesty’s pleasure for nine months at 21, prison changed Georgia G’s life, and it was there that she developed her poetry into rap. She has been a guest speaker at Birmingham University and London University rapping her prison argument. Georgia was also guest speaker at the Oxford University Union Debating Society earlier in the year against Jonathan Aitkin MP on Prison reform.
Weapons Of Mass Belief are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album recorded at Courtyard studios, due for release Spring 2006.'
