This rabble-rousing act feature 24yr-old Derek Meins on vocals, accompanied by both Robert Dylan Thomas and ‘T-Train’ on thunderous double-drums. Derek’s force-of-nature voice and rallying-call songs are unashamedly political but aim to inspire and energise rather than dictate some dubious ideology. The Agitator’s music is stripped-down, loud and in yer face. No frills, primal. “Guitars are for decadent capitalist sissies!” Though starkly contemporary, their sound contains classic ingredients harking back to the fifties and depression-era thirties.
