Album Notes
Meat Is Murder. In fact, the song that saved my life. I'd never heard a song like this before in my life. And in 2014, partly because of its overwhelming existence, I decided to never eat meat again.
Meat Is Murder by The Smiths, recorded in 1984 to me is one of a kind – high up in the honor roll. Thanks to the cooperation and the eternal patience of my partner in musical crime AIex Elzer we were able to make a derivative. I am convinced that making music about animal abuse in order to raise awareness can prevent animals from suffering and will contribute to less animal abuse from now on and in the future to no abuse at all. In addition or as a result of raising awareness, maybe more people choose to eat less meat or maybe become vegetarian. That abattoirs will be superfluous is my dream. Meat Is Murder would have never seen daylight if slaughterhouses had had glass walls - Everyone would have been vegetarian ages ago. Unfortunately, too little has changed since 1984 and time is running out. Today, I feel it as my duty to pass on the Meat Is Murder legacy by Morrissey/Marr for the animals. With the derivative of Meat Is Murder I’m hoping to give the animals, whom I concider to be my friends, their voices they deserve and need so badly in these horrible times.

Well worth the wait
I have Previously heard a couple of demo versions of K performing this song and and I loved them very much but it's an absolute joy to hear the final studio version. Love the guitar/ instrumentation as well as the different arrangement and refreshing feel of a song that I know very very well indeed . As ever K voice is achingly beautiful, haunting and dare I say it Angry as this is plainly a subject and a song that means so much to the artists. A very well done to all and although I dont speak one word of Dutch Ks wonderul voice means that I cannot wait to hear the Dutch version .if you love this song like i do check out some of the artists other work on you tube.
