Oh f*ck, this LONG awaited burner from Manchester-based socio-political underground vocal force Michael O’Neill is here, FINALLY “Essentially, we’re dealing with problems here. Let’s call it the 0800-FUCKPUNK-helpline, Michael O’Neill is on the other side of the speaker and needs you to know, as the ‘proper’ press text aptly puts it below, and as Mr. Huxley already warned, we’re all taking too much of that fucking soma! Well here’s your undiluted antidote. 100% honest, 100% direct, 100% no bullshit – take the hit, Micheal O’Neill is here with a wake up call for us all. The album is called ‘The Binary Order’ but you can also just call it a slam in the face to all weakhearts and vampires, because this is political power punk poetry… That’s four P’s: one for each knuckle.”
“Chewed up and spat out, targeted and watched.” Surplus labour piles up in concrete reservations. The veneer of democracy is fading fast. Confusion reigns. Our subjection to the economy’s ravenous death drive is eased and obscured by Silicon Valley soma, street drugs and the media’s trivialising babble. Pop music’s part of the distraction, of course, but it doesn’t have to be. ‘Binary Order’ is the debut album from Michael O’Neill, a child of Irish immigrants born and raised in North Manchester. A polemic on culture, class and society, ‘The Binary Order’ is fiercely political and musically infectious.
“I’ve had enough of this avant-garde shit”
