Music · James Brown · Talking Loud and Saying Nothing

On the occasion of the UK Independence Party (UKIP)'s saturation media moment this funky moment seems apt. For the party of 'make up populist policy'.
Like a dull knife just ain't cuttin'
We're just talkin' a lot and sayin' nothing
Just sayin' nothing, just sayin' nothing
According to Brown, 'Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing' was "aimed at the politicians who were running their mouths but had no knowledge of what life was like for a lot of people in [the United States]" as well as "some of the cats on their soapboxes... who were telling the people one thing while manipulating their emotions for personal gain."

A mate was panicking about them to which I responded that Brits have been here before. Troglodytes have had their moments before. The BNP has MEPs but now no councillors. Before that we had the National Front (who?) and before that Britain a/ laughed at the 1930s answer to UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Oswald Mosely, and b/ beat back the blackshirts at Cable Street.
Wait a minute, stop fellas, cool.
For a stream of laughs at Farage's expense I recommend this Twitter feed.

Shake your money maker after the jump:
