Review - White Light Parade - House Of Commons

White Light Parade - House Of Commons

View The Review

6 out of 10

With Brit Rock having a bit of a renaissance at the moment, up and coming bands are waiting to get their share of fame and glory. White Light Parade are no different. With a title like House Of Commons, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is going to be a politically charged album. Riot In The City definitely delivers with a Clash-like stomp and Damned-influenced snarl. Whilst Wait For The Weekend could have been penned by Paul Weller.

Although this album has somewhat of a weak start, it picks up pretty quickly though albeit the material is not quite the most original around. Nevertheless White Light Parade have a tonne of passion and urban work ethic. Not quite a Definitely Maybe here but there is a tonne of potential here with this band.

I see, what a title, 'House of Commons'.

I wonder what they would think of my song "Gordon Brown be my Angel" then. Do you regard it to be original? Is that what you have been looking for?

Gordon Brown! Gordon Brown!
Will you be my angel?
Guardian angel is what I meant
Will you rescue my soul?

For you are in charge
Of these people I wrote to
Stephen Timms, Jack Straw
Let me place my trust in you

Gordon Brown! MP’s!
Let me sing out loud
For what you do, for my country
For my reproductive system

You right wrongs! My right’s been wronged
I am desperate for you
Not just you! There’s Jon Herring
I’m a violated woman

Gordon Brown, help me sleep!
Help me sleep like a baby
Will my babies ever come out?
Maternal desires!
I lost my womanhood
In a sinister curse
Gordon Brown! Bring it back!
You are perfect for that!
Gordon Brown, Gordon Brown
Chase the devil for me!!
