about

In Joe's own words:

Joseph Jeremiah O’Sullivan, my great-great grandfather, came over from Cork in Ireland in the late 1800s. According to family legend, on the way over he dropped the ‘O’ from his name to sound more English. Tilbury docks is where the Empire Windrush docked in 1948, in Thurrock, Essex; now a very safe seat for a Conservative party responsible in 2012 for wrongfully detaining and deporting many of the Windrush generation as part of the Hostile Environment policy.

These two things have been circling around my head in the past few years since the 2016 Brexit referendum, and the rise in an apparently socially-approved right-wing nationalism that’s gone along with it. This record covers colonialism through the eyes of museums, immigration, and wondering just what the hell is going through some people’s heads. Or in other words, it’s a weird folk-rock record about Brexit.

Tilbury is available everywhere digitally on Friday 26th June 2020.
