In true Hip Hop style they who pull no punches when it comes to saying it how it really is. With a plethora of talent under one roof Rotten Hill Gang are a breath of fresh London air.

Teach Peace is an education, exhilaration and a down right banger. It's rap and roll, a mash up of styles all under one album.

Trying to explain the immoral wrongs of the world within the words and where they come from. Re-educating themselves and saying wat they believe in their songs, that's why Rotten Hill Gang have named their new album Teach Peace.


Whiskey Moon Face Drops Upcoming Album, Formless Forms, Late March

Education, housing, healthcare, foodbanks, racism, corporate greed, tax evasion climate change, child abuse and religion all need to be addressed properly, not swept under the carpet to be covered up by the next scandal.

Rotten Hill Gang believe we all need to be speaking our minds about what's going on. 
Peace can be just as prosperous as war. Even for the corporations, there's nothing wrong with making money it's what you do with it that counts.

It's not where we're from, it's where we're at.


Formed in a heartbeat within the cracks and alleys of Ladbroke Grove and Portobello, evolving over a lifetime from Powis Squareto Times Square. Rotten Hill Gang are a perfect example of the whole being greater than the sum of one. A W11 based collective of street poets and classically trained musicians thrown into a room to record and film the chaos in an attempt to make music and TV exciting again. With a no fear attitude of "achievement is the belief of the imagination."

Based around a backbone of a solid group of musicians including:

Gary McPherson AKA Dirty White Bass/DJ/Street Star/Vocals
Rotten Red West AKA Redskin/Rapper/Poet/Wordsmith
Martin Hallett AKA Mallett Drum/Perc/Vocals/Programmer
Gus Robertson AKA BeetleGus Guitars/Vocals/Selector

The album also features Hollie Cook and Annie Bea two stunningly talented writers/performers and Fjokra Mac, the multi-instrumentalist who can pick a tune out with his teeth.


Andy Cooper and Sweden’s Easy Are Set to Drop New Albums Late January

Over the last 12 months this cast of mavericks have performed with a huge array of artists including members of The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Slits, Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople), Beth Orton, Dawn Penn whilst Don Letts and Paul Oakenfold have deejayed at RHG's events, the latter remixing "Might As Well Quit" from RHG's debut album.

All of this of course is Rotten Hill Gang blowing smoke up their own arses. But it's not just them, word is catching on that this band have got something worthwhile. You don't have to believe another boring bio, just take a listen to the mesmerizing album that is sure to be the soundtrack to many summer festivals, dig in and turn it up.

 

TEACH PEACE.
