Taken from upcoming album '45' to be released on September 13
School of Language aka Field Music’s David Brewis has just shared his video for “Rex” a highlight from his recent album ‘45’. Directed by Andy Martin the video features a claymation (T) Rex Tillerson expresses what all rightminded folk think of the current President.
‘45’ is an album about the 45th President - his dubious rise in politics, his capricious behaviour while in office and the motley cast of characters he has surrounded himself with.
It’s not exactly a protest record, though it is shot through with anger. It’s definitely not a joke, though some of it is darkly funny. It is a tragedy and it is a farce. One advisor sells Trump on the idea of a border wall. Another one feels he can’t quit because of the chaos that might follow. Rex Tillerson fumes at his plummeting status. Psychiatrists fret about the President’s mental stability. Hillary Clinton laments her loss. Trump himself brags and equivocates in his own unique, blustering style.
School of Language is David Brewis, who also makes music with his brother Peter as Field Music. This is the third School of Language album, following on from Sea From Shore in 2008 and Old Fears in 2014.
45 was written and recorded in a little less than two months during gaps in the schedule at Field Music’s studio in Sunderland. It was inspired by Bob Woodward’s book Fear, articles in the Washington Post, The New Yorker and The New York Times and by Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight. It was also inspired by James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, The Meters, Otis Redding and Free.
