Knee High Socks & Hot Rocks by Rebecca Radical

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Starting off with a short monologue about positivity as a conscious attitude, ‘Knee High Socks & Hot Rocks’ the debut album by Rebecca Radical, released in November 2019, is an exploration of radical compassion after almost ten years of Tory rule in Westminster. 

One of the highlights is ‘Bojo’s Nae Mojo’ which opens with the line “Fuck me I am gutted, can’t believe what’s went down/ Thinking Theresa May might not have been bad somehow / At least she liked ta boogie but now I think we’re fucked /Cause Bojo’s got nae mojo and we’re all out of luck.” Songs like ‘War Is Shit’ and ‘Rebel Scum’ demonstrate Radical’s skill as a wordsmith – something she’s taken full advantage of with her side-hustle selling patches and t-shirts featuring her slogans and illustrations. 

Each song lasts around two minutes or less and they do all sound a bit similar, but occasional spoken word elements and the aforementioned wordplay make the album a distinctive enough listen. If you see Rebecca Radical on the bill at a local gig definitely stay and check her out, and consider supporting her.

You can buy the physical CD for £10 and the digital for £7 on Bandcamp at and find her merch on Etsy at
