Song of the Day: Swine Tax – Johnny

Formed in Newcastle upon Tyne, Swine Tax is the creative voice of Vince (lead vocals and guitar), TK (bass), Charlie (drums) and Euan (synth and guitar). A close-knit group with a strong musical chemistry, the band continues to hone an acerbic rock sound that takes cues from both UK post-punk and US garage rock. Swine Tax are often noted for their animated spoken-sung vocals, sharp songwriting and wry social commentary. Well-known up north for their independent ethos, the band have immersed themselves in their home city’s thriving Diy culture and continue to gain a reputation for cacophonous and adrenaline-fuelled live shows.
