ALBUM: SXSW 2007 Showcasing Artists
FILE UNDER: Melodramatic Popular Song
LABEL: Beggars Banquet
INFO: iLiKETRAiNS welcome in 2007 with a spectacular nine and half minute release, reciting the story of the only successful assassination of a British Prime Minister, 'Spencer Perceval', in 1812. The song is written from the perspective of murderer John Bellingham whilst the accompanying track, 'I am Murdered', is sung from that of Spencer himself. Both tracks were produced by the band late 2006 in the first recording session for their forthcoming debut album. 'Spencer Perceval' is a colossal and beautiful piece of music, setting out the stall for this strangely unique band in the year to come.
