SHOPLIFTING 4 JESUS IS ON ITS WAY

We knew you guys couldn't wait any longer, and we're so excited nor could we!

Pre-order it today and we'll pop it in the post next week!

Our bass player Frankie Z tells us how it is:

The lord helps those that help themselves…and it is indeed the case where this album is concerned. What is the difference between plagarism and theft, inspiration or plundering?  Once  the lines had been  well and truly  and most deliberately smudged… the fun begun .

This album for me was one of the most creative processes I’ve ever  been involved in . From the moment the name 'Shoplifting for Jesus' was half -consciously muttered it was seized upon and given life, and this really set the tone for the creative process - people,in a room, being encouraged to create - a blank page,a computer screen, waiting for audio - a guitar,a keyboard - and some extraordinary characters.

Then, more people arrive, and enjoy, and they too participate. Bez is in town...he’s got to catch a plane in the morning,where’s he gonna go when he’s in London? He comes down to Jamm and ends up on the intro to 'We Stole the Moon'   drummer Johnny D meets Lois Winstone, she pops by and sings backing vocals on 'Abide with me' and the intro to John Sinclair. She tells her Dad - and blimey ,suddenly we’ve got Ray Winstone on  the opening track 'Nightmare' ..it’s all going very well. It doesn't stop there ...Martina Cole is next up  bringing a much needed edge to 'Who the fuck is John Sinclair ?'

Tallulah Boom  raps on 'Saved' and 'Let's go out 2nite', from the USA MC Russell Jordan  takes the first verse on 'It’s about that time'.  Now we can’t stop ‘em... Rob from Ireland's Cold Comfort, Proud Mary  “we’re from the south of the bridge” chant Major Dee and Rhia Creole ....the list goes on……
Shoplifting  for Jesus? Mohammed knows I’m good .?
Killing in the name ?  Thieving is the game ?
