Music For A Better World
NOTES
THE PAPERS new release COWGIRL KISS is a song that takes a swipe at pill culture. The band rides into town with a better way of being healthy using natural remedies and alternative approaches to staying fit from yoga and homeopathy to acupuncture and wholefoods. Get with the beat, get up on your feet, and dump the pills, they're making you ill.

Whatever you dream make it real: 'It Doesn't matter who you are' 'Barack Obama
NOTES

The Papers were formed in 1979 and were based in the wild end of Brixton South London and oscillated between the music scenes in Brixton and Deptford Crossfields estate – the home of Dire Straits, Squeeze and many other fine bands. The scene was agitated, uncompromising, exhilarating, ripe for political protest and full of invention and unstoppable musical carnage. In the middle of this The Papers emerged with their strident tough talking explosion of challenging agi-pop.
