Apparently the UK government has no interest in allowing Serbian punk act The Worldly Savages to play their folk noise at our lovely festivals. In trying to stop the spread of folk punk, the government saw it fit to deny visas to half the band members! It is not the first time I’ve heard of bands having problems this year; who knows how ridiculous it will become after Brexit!
The band is scheduled to play Boomtown Festival this coming Friday; the good news is they will still be playing, the sad news is that it will be a stripped down version with half the members left behind in Serbia!
Well the band was not too happy about the situation and took to youtube to protest UK visa restrictions. You can check the rather amusing video for “21st Century Racism” below. It’s actually very catchy and raises a good point about border controls.
