The Dead Milkmen "Fascist Groove Thang" 7" Vinyl & Digital Download GG017


The Dead Milkmen make a triumphant return with their new single, a spirited cover of Heaven 17’s classic anti-fascism anthem “(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang". With righteous indignation and a thumping four-on-the-floor beat, the recording marks the legendary satirical punk band’s first new release since 2017’s Welcome to the End of the World EP—and a characteristically grim pronouncement on the upcoming Republican National Convention.

The new single is accompanied by a b-side, “A Complicated Faith,” a Milkmen original buoyed by Depeche Mode-inspired rhythms and a scalding guitar solo courtesy of Joe Jack Talcum. “It's obviously a very emotional song for Rodney to sing,” drummer Dean Clean says of the tune.

Following the Giving Groove model, all label profits will be donated to a 501(c)3 music-related charity. The Dead Milkmen have chosen Girls Rock Philly as the recipient for this release.
