This debut single from the Innervation Trust's groundbreaking ministry trio, thebandwithnoname, hits you right in the face from the offtake. Almost impossible to classify, the band take elements of rock/ rap (Rage Against The Machine) and dance grooves (Zarc Porter is in the production seat) and produce something that is profoundly street relevant but not at all stylised. It encaptures the vision of a school's ministry project desperate to see a real change in the hearts of our nation's young people. Adam Brown, Chip Kendall, and Bobby Stearns rap out their plans warning "everybody get ready" amidst an amazing conglomeration of electronic frequencies and the talent of these guys should not be missed. The passion behind the mission is evident on this catchy little number and that forces it into a new realm.
