The Notes:

Track 01 – HANNIBAL

Acoustic Wordsmiths Urban Rap track on Fur , back in Fashion Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

Real Fur,. It;s everywhere again ! Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ? The reality is FAUX FUR never really looks that great after a few weeks and a rainstorm, If your trim still has its bright eyed and bushy tailed look,. its most likely real fur,. pretty sick stuff,. with a global growing skin alive policy,. back handers to hide sources and material tagging to get round import restrictions, elite advertising and profiteering Real Fur is the symbol of absolute ethical and social decadence.

When people wear a jacket with a FUR trim, you are making the clear statement: “Hey i’m really cool with that, and cares about where it comes from as long as i look pretty”..but are you ? really, what kind of person would be ?

Lyrics:
Rabbit Fur , Dog Fur, why not skin a cat fur ?
thought you had the quality but you have got the crapfur
the only fur i’d wanna see is the one thats on your Bush,
on your Bush…x2
the only fur i’d wanna see is the one thats on your Bush,

Been down the fur shop wax your muff and all that,
but you fucking came back with a fluffy fur hat
I seen a poster offering a reward for you lost cat
whats the reward for fur on the back ?
what if you were killed for your fur coat ?
seen that PETA advert where that bloke
picks up a pole and wacks her round her boat
strips off her back spreads blood like a moat

How about i skin you and wear you too you
can wear your fur while i wear a fuck you
You wanna wear fur? Well I wanna wear you
I think I’d look really nice in a hat made of boobs
Believe me there’s only one fur I wanna see
And it’s not the one on your coat lady
Think a bit more personally
Now get out your badger, and show it to me

Are you so scared to show the skin that you’re in
That you’d rather wear that of another living thing
Well it ain’t living now, it’s remains in the bin
And the chances that it died humanely are slim
You wouldn’t wear your pet dog so why wear that
There’s no difference between fido and your fucking mink hat
And if you think there is then you’re truly a twat
Now stand in line as I give you all a slap
a slap a slap

Good News – We found your lost kitten / Puppy ! Bad News is your wearing it !

Track 02 – Fur Trade (NORDICS) Not FAMILY FRIENDLY

02. European Fur Farms Exposed

sales figures on fur in the UK have sky rocketed through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

The Fur Farming prohibition act was passed in 2000,. to prohibit the keeping of animals soley or primarily for the slaughter value of their fur.

Prior to the ban there were 11 fur farms in the UK producing 100,000 mink skins for luxury retail consumption a year. A public consultation in 1998 found there was overwhelming public support to end the practice in the UK.

So if there are no Fur farms in the UK who’s producing the fur that finds itself on to the UK high street ?

Cheap trims and hoods are classically imported from Asia or via Us markets. due to the rise in cost of producing fake fur, cheap real furs such as dog, raccoon in in the toy market cat fur have replaced fake as the main staple supply.

The fine mink and chinchilla furs favored in luxury London retailers are being for the most part supplied via Denmark and Norway. Both these countries insist their fur production is ethical.

A series over undercover recordings and video footage within the Nordic fur industry presents a distressing picture that appears out of step, in every way with this public statement. Please consider the impact of allowing this industry to continue unchallenged.

The following recording presents the experiences Animals for Fur go through, from the initial confinement leading to the knawing of limbs, starvation eating of excrement, and other , normal , physiological disorders caused for confinement. through to the execution of animals, the removal of skins and disposal of the carcasses as waste or by product.

Act    I – Confinement

Act   II – Execution

Act III – Defilment

Track 03 – China Anal Electrocution and Skin Alives

03. China Fur Farms (Main Retail Supply) (*See CONTENT note in footer.)

Right,
this recordings on China.
This was taken in Chinese Fur Farms using a skinned Alive practice. (*See CONTENT note in footer.)

They skin the fur off the animals alive.That’s for the trims and then for full pelts what they do is rather than damage the fur they capture the animal and they anally electrocute it with electrodes so they remove the fur without and damage to the fur and word is that the meat goes to pet food so at least there is some sort of by product.

It goes back into the pet food chain, whereas with some European furs they just, they just dump it for rubbish ,. ..

it goes back into the pet food chain so there is some by product but it’s a cruel process, here’s the recordings

Western demand for cheap fur product.
this demand has created a multi billion dollar industry, animal theft, and an explosion of the fur farming in china. The industry is unregulated* and many of the animals processed for fur have been found still wearing pet collars.
Fur, such as dog raccoon and cat are being processed at a rate of over 100,000 pelts a week and have last year passed the 5 million animal mark yet despite this demand continues unchecked and unchallenged.
Stores have been outed as labeling cheap fur products as fake and as recently as last week, a leading high street store in Covent Garden Store was forced to remove 4 products following an oversight on labeling. Most furs for sale in the UK are being sourced from the cheap fur unregulated network and purchasers are unaware of the origin of their product believing them to be very good fakes.

This audio recording documents the anal electrocution and skinning alive of dogs and raccoon’s for the westerns fur trim and hoods market

*Legislation against Cruelty has been drafted in 2009 but sidelined due to financial implications of applying the law though the main fur regions such as HeiBei have released Public statement that they are ethical.

Track 04 – London Protest and OUTRO (Hannibal Insrumental)

This track is the closing Outro to the Anti Fur campaign Awareness E.P.
The recording captures some protest action in London Earlier in 2015 along with an Instrumental Version of Hannibal.
