That’s Not My Name – new Heavy Load single about Hate Crime
Heavy Load are releasing a re-worked version of the Ting Ting’s No.1 hit to coincide with Learning Disability week.
Heavy Load say “we’re fed up with hearing people like Jeremy Clarkson using words like ‘retard’ and Frankie Boyle’s offensive jokes. So many words of hate are in common use on TV, across playgrounds and in work places. Heavy Load have approached the Ting Tings to radically change the lyrics – and they love the idea:
“They call me spaz, they call me special, That’s Not My Name”
Heavy Load say “we’ve deliberately used the words that are so common because we want to make it clear what we’re singing about”
The single gets released through the band’s own label on 21st June ’11
