Following in the footsteps of Airbourne and The Darkness with a happy-sounding, back-to-basics and roll style, English rockers, Massive Wagons, have released the anthemic “Billy Balloon Head” track and . Only Massive Wagons take on deeper issues within their jolly rock sound; frontman Baz Mills commented:
I really have no idea if the term ‘balloon head’ is one used anywhere else in the world but where I’m from. Maybe it is, I don’t know — but if you’re a balloon head, then as far as I’m concerned, you’re the sort of person with nothing much in the way of being nice, being tolerant, being open-minded, or having much going on upstairs full stop. The song’s a stab at racists and ignorant people. I’ve no time for it; be nice or fuck off. That, in a roundabout way, is what ‘Billy Balloon Head’ is all about. If you’re gonna be a twat, fuck off and be a twat somewhere else, on your own. Bottom of the sea preferably.
Following on from their previous single “China Plates,” which takes a candid look at the rise of social media and people’s compulsion to share every aspect of their lives online, the band’s new song “Billy Balloon Head” this time takes aim at the growing culture of intolerance, ignorance and racism which is sadly prevalent in modern society.
