I think it's disgusting the way This government is treating people who can't Vitally live in this English country of ours / I think it's absolutely disgusting The way we treat people in this country

Primary prole MP judge general policeman
Figureheads sucked in as just another token
Sell your culture and tolerate another
Annihilation in the pursuit of self-love corruption

UK channel boredom
Tune in reception control
UK channel boredom
Underclass coma zone

Don't pacify your life to suit dead law convention
White trash held up as just more gold chain icons
State fed lies charm empty eyes
Happy thought's a unity death smile of acceptance

UK channel boredom
Mainline's on a death fix
UK channel boredom
You bleed the thought of throwing bricks

Europa kid realise your thoughts
Kill all ruling class laws

    General Comment"UK Channel Boredom" is a song by the rock band Manic Street Preachers that appeared as the second song on a 7" flexi-disc given away free with the March 1990 editions of two fanzines, Hopelessly Devoted and Goldmining. The first song on the disc was "I Wonder What The Trouble Is" by North West indie band The Laurens (Craig Latham/Tim Nixon/Jon Clarkson/Dan Connolly/Paul Deakin). 1000 copies were made. It is not an official single, as it is non chart-eligible. Recorded for £25, the song takes its title from the (as yet unsigned) band's first press release, written by Richey Edwards: "...We are the only young kids in UK Channel Boredom to realise the future is in tight trousers, dyed hair and NOT the baggy loose attitude of scum fuck retard zerodom of Madchester". The song later reappeared in a re-recorded form as 'A Vision of Dead Desire', a b-side to the single You Love Us, which reached #16 in 1992.
