I'd love to have this on a 7" too.

Will this be released as a 7" at any point? That would be pretty great. These songs are great great great.

Free Criminal Records FC01 Channels "Backpfeifengesicht" b/w "Airstrip One"

Two songs recorded by Channels in 2016.

The two songs on this single are the first two songs written and fully arranged by the newly re-energized Channels. The lyrics are a reaction to the upending of the world order at the time of the songs’ birth. “Airstrip One” is a meditation on Brexit, xenophobia and the manipulation of nationalistic fears in the face of an uncertain future. “Backpfeifengesicht,” a musical voodoo-doll of the President-elect on the eve of his victory, takes its title from a German compound word whose various translations include “a face in search of a lead pipe.”
