Captain Ska’s ‘Liar Liar’ hit no.10 in the download chart today but the BigTop40 chart show on CapitalFM and Heart refused to play it.
Performed and produced by the band Captain Ska and promoted by campaign organisation the People’s Assembly Against Austerity the song features various speeches and news interviews from Theresa May followed by a chorus of ‘She’s a Liar, Liar…you can’t trust her, no no no no’.
The song attacks the Conservative Parties’ record in office over the NHS crisis, education and levels of poverty. “When there’s nurses going hungry and schools in decline I don’t recognise this broken country of mine’ goes one of the lyrics.
The song has been available for download from last Friday (26 May) and has been rising up in the iTunes charts, reaching no.10 today.
The chart show, hosted by Marvin Humes & Kat Shoob, announced the track had reached no.10 but instead of playing it went straight onto playing no.9.
Jake from Captain Ska said
“This can only be seen as an attempt by the media owners to undermine public opinion. Thousands of people have downloaded this track and we demand that it is aired as any other song would be.”
The People’s Assembly is asking all supporters to complain to the BigTop40.
