Kiran Leonard’s new eight-minute long track is the latest instalment of the upcoming ‘Western Culture’ album set for release next week. Featuring the fabulous Let’s Eat Grandma, ‘Legacy Of Neglect’ is simply a masterpiece.
EIGHT minutes you say? Well luckily the track turns down a number of fresh and exciting paths forcing you to pay attention throughout.
Speaking on the track Kiran says:
“”Legacy of Neglect” is chiefly about two things. Culture, and the weird dual meaning of the word: how it’s a concept necessarily in constant flux, in dialogue with a rapidly transforming society, yet also one that many people regard as something static and possessed, a ‘heritage’ you can draw on when the world seems precarious and alien and antagonistic.
“Secondly, history and class: bad analyses of terrible socio-political developments from people who should know better, invariably ahistorical, patronising, disingenuous, devoid of empathy, etc. Let it be said that fascism never was, never will be, a popular movement; it has always been a creation and servant of the elite and the privileged. Consider the actual architects of bigoted violence, and the refuse of our sad histories. Consider where vulgarity actually comes from.”
