“This song is blasting!” - Huw Stephens
South London separatist trio Flash Fiktion release “Me and Mr E” - the anthemic third single from their self-titled debut album, due this summer. The track has already garnered heavy radio support from the BBC’s Huw Stephens and XFM’s Eddy Temple-Morris and John Kennedy.
“This is the song that represents our vision entirely. Subtly epic, twisted, mysterious and
glorious” says lead singer Matt Rokk.
The song recounts a man with a split personality, who after visiting an otherworldly lapdancing club, watches it burn down in suspicious circumstances. “I think we all have an element of split personality in all of us, and I guess Mr E is mine. Our songs are like little stories, based on real-life events but given a kind of psychedelic twist. They’re like dreams, or nightmares, and the bizarre things that happen within them.”- Matt.
Me and Mr E will also be available on a very limited run of customised tape recorders, with the song encased. “The seeds of our production and recording skills were sewn, toying on Fisher Price and Sony models,” says guitarist Ollie Thomas, “This is a nod to our musical birth”.
The B sides comprise “The Loner”, tying in with the A sides’ mysterious mood, a tale of alienation set to a dark atmospheric soundtrack. Remix duties are covered by “System Heavy” – another sign of flourishing life from the immediate surrounds of the Flash Fiktion HQ. Sub bass, arpeggiator-fueled electronica pulsating through your stomach causing feelings of nausea and euphoria.
Dance or Die people - you’re still Evil......
