Thee Faction are a nine-piece Socialist RnB collective from Reigate. Their backstory is a bit hazy, with roots somewhere in the early 80s, but their current incarnation has been providing marching songs for the masses and comradely sing songs for the socialists since 2010. In that time they’ve been hotly tipped by the Daily Mirror, slagged off by the Telegraph, lauded by the Morning Star, and have played big-stage slots at festivals from Glastonbury to Tolpuddle. “a dose of wildly galvanising, blisteringly angry, insanely entertaining blue collar rock’n’roll….mixing the grungey pub rock power of Dr Feelgood with the bolshy brass of Dexys, virtually every track is scalp-pricklingly good…” (Mojo – 4/5) “The pseudonymous collective purvey piledriving, brassy RnB and proletarian-rousing politics, and deliver both with unapologetic gusto, at a time when both are needed more than ever….they offer a blood transfusion to the world-weary, painfully over-sophisticated state of 21st century pop.” (Classic Rock 8/10)
