Rage Against The Brexit Machine

£830 of £3,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 6 months
"Rage Against The Brexit Machine" are releasing a stream of diverse songs to highlight the need to exit Brexit for the good of all in the UK, the EU and the world. Brexit is breaking the UK - let's finish the job before Brexit Breaks Britain !! We seek a better Britain in a united reformed Europe.


In doing so we will "take back control" of Murdoch's Murderous Media Monopoly Machine and The Barclay Brother's Brexit Bullshit Bandwagon and give the Remain movement the publicity it so badly needs to turn the corner on Brexit.

We have already released eight songs under the banner "Rage Against The Brexit Machine".  Find them on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Spotify etc. More coming:

In Limbo - A cool dance groove that highlights the plight of the 3 million EU Citizens caught in limbo in the UK featuring professional singer Rachel Ashley - Release date March 2018

So Good - A disco pop reflection on our times inspired by Harold MacMillan - Available now to pre-order for release Feb 09

Pants to Brexit - feat. "Boris Johnson and Madonna" in a lover's triste on the Titanic

Jacob Rees-Moog - 18th Century Tory Tranceflloor 

No, Jeremy Corbyn - Against Jezza's Brexit obsession

Way to Know - feat. Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band 

The Biggest Loser - A tale of "Brexit buyer's remorse"

The Tragedy of Europe - feat. Winston Churchill

Don't Throw it all Away - Feat EU Supergirl 

Fiscal Cliff - A hard rock song for hard times under hard Brexit (or any Brexit for that matter)

Shit Eating Grin - A dark reflection on Theresa May's Leadership style from Peter Da Clinker with influences from Joy Division to Wire - Release date Feb 23 2018

How You Can Help

1. By giving a donation, small or large. 

2. By direct sponsorship - please contact us for details if you are a business or an organisation.

3. By sharing the project widely via direct e-mail, text or word of mouth to potential donors.

4. By social sharing via Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin etc. Blog about it and so on.

Who Are We?

By day I am a business consultant, speaker and author of 7.5 books on business. Find out more about our talents at The Academy of Rock , Human Dynamics and Virgin . My aim is simple and single minded :

BREAK BREXIT BEFORE BREXIT BREAKS BRITAIN

I led the Musical Direction of The No 10 Downing Street in 2017, combining speaking, musical parody, comedy, performance art etc.  I am unrepentent about my occasionally abrasive but clever form of satirical activism to reach the heads, hearts and arses of the people ... after all the Brexit referendum was caused by a direct appeal to arseholes ... ??

Who Benefits?

You and your children will benefit in terms of avoiding up to 10 years of economic and social ruin that we face under Brexit. Present estimates indicate a £60 billion exit bill and about £100 billion per year of austerity due to Brexit impacts. That's £1 TRILLION of your taxes, student loans, pensions, NHS funding, social care ... and for what benefit? I'm still waiting to hear the cost benefit analysis David Davis ... are you listening? And all for 37 pence a day - what a waste!!


We are not saboteurs, traitors or snowflakes, we are true patriots. We believe in a better Britain in a united reformed Europe so let's do this together:

So, today marks the launch of "In Limbo" by "Voices for Europe". We have had a little bit of publicity via the Sunday Star, The Guardian and at this moment we are just one point under Kylie Minogue. If we continue to hang around in the Amazon chart we may end up in the Top 40 next week so please download the songs now.

Ideally you buy three copies of the EP - one for yourself, then gift one to a weary remainer and another to a leaver in regret. That way you contribute NINE clicks towards the chart position. Don't delay - we need those clicks now.

Find all the links to iTunes, Amazon and Google Play via http://www.brexitrage.com/rage/sample-page/april-20-in-limbo-voices-for-europe/

At the same time Mark Duffy has made us a supremely brilliant video for the song - coming soon. he is unwaged so if you feel like supporting him please donate here. All money is going to him this month.

Thank you all so much for your support so far.

If we chart this song, we will own the Brexity media.

Once in the chart we will likely stay there in the run up to the local elections with a message to Remain in the EU.

Just think about it ....

A Letter To Gina ....

I've just sent a letter to Gina Miller to see if she will help us mainstream the In Limbo song.

Who else do you think we should ask?

This week we have had a piece in The New European, we appeared on BBC Any Questions. Thoughts and ideas to gain exposure for the song and cause?

Join our Facebook group to get busy at https://www.facebook.com/groups/188546291745623/

BBC Any Questions piece is here : https://soundcloud.com/peter-cook-2/any-answers-listen-without-prejudice

We start the countdown to song release on April 20 now so please get in touch if you can help. To quote a blues song "I can't do it all by myself" :-)

Today I heard that David Davis says that "We will still have Brexit even if Parliament reject Theresa May's deal as part of a meaningful vote". What part of meaningful is a vote by the elected Sovereign Parliament where you reject the result?

So, it's time to Rage - Get off the sofa, do something. Stop talking about Ball Tampering and start talking about Vote Tampering ...

We need your help - we need to mainstream the arguments of 3 million EU citizens about to be left outside alone by Brexit. In fact we need to mainstream the argument to Remain in the EU for all "Citizens of Nowhere" ... some 73% of the people in the UK.

We need your help to make a killer video for the project so please donate something to the fund.

At the same time you can help in any way below ... here is our marketing plan below.

We have our first pieces of publicity for the release of "In Limbo" - A piece from Femi Oluwole and another from a French Newspaper courtesy of Kristina Violinist Singer.

All the best

Peter

Things to do to make “In Limbo” a chart success

The objective

To help stop Brexit by getting newsworthy stories about the human cost of Brexit into national media. To do this we must chart the song in the UK Top 40 w/c Friday 20 April.

The strategy

We have JUST ONE week to chart the song. There is NO second chance or build up. Chart position is determined by sales in one week and we need to fire all the bullets in one week. People will not buy again in the second week etc. so it’s a one time affair

The song goes live on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and so on Friday 20 April and chart runs from 00.00 Friday to 23.59 Thursday.

ALL purchases count towards the chart, in other words if you buy on Amazon and iTunes that counts twice. Also every different format counts towards the chart position, so buying the 11 minute version, 3 minute radio mix and the “Ghosts” ambient mix ALL count.

We will almost certainly be able to pre-order the song from Friday 13 April, which gives us a two week window.

Some useful facts

We probably need 10 000 downloads minimum to crack the Top 200.

We estimate that 30 000 would mean we get to the Top 40.

There will be 3 formats of the song available, so that’s about 10000 people we need to engage assuming they bought all formats (they won’t), probably 15000 x 2 formats. It’s a lot but if we all act together

We need a minimum of 500 people on the fb advocate group to spread the word. And I don’t mean just clicking the like button !! ☺

I plan to produce some not for sale versions in different languages to help us reach Europe : A German mix, a French one, the Latin mix (Italian and Spanish) and the Eastern European version.

I know what does not work …. me spending 24 hours a day shouting at people to buy the song …. So I need your help …

The tactics

There are three phases to this:

PREPARATION – We mainly need to build numbers of people willing to help and draw media, celebs and Remain VIP’s to the cause to build the platform for launch. I will make the song available on Soundcloud to get people listening and talking about it.

w/c 13.04.18 – Pre-ordering – We need to get as many people as possible to pre-order the song

w/c 20.04.18 – Chart week – all hands to the pump to get downloads and profile out there

Any of these things work. I simply need you to run with some of these:

• Dealing with the Press : I am attaching a database of Press contacts – please let me know who you can target in a reply to this post so we don’t duplicate

• Gaining active endorsements from celebs and / or Remain VIP’s – written, audio on a phone, video etc. See Femi Oluwole’s video endorsement as an example

• Writing to MP’s and Lords – I will upload separately a LOL (List Of Lords) – do we have a similar list for MP’s, presumably a LOMP?

• Local TV / Radio – getting interviews and features – I’ve will upload separately a press release. Generally speaking one needs to write a specific call to action to engage a particular journalist and it’s often helpful to personalise the approach

• Direct e-mail / pm / phone calls etc. to your networks with a simple call to action – I can supply some sample letters. Direct approaches are much better than social sharing in general

• Playing it in your friend’s houses and asking them to download it. Start the conversation

• Asking those people to do the same, which multiplies your effort xxxx many times over

• Social sharing on fb, Twitter, Google, Linkedin. Sharing and Liking is not downloading but every little helps

• Blogging about it and getting established bloggers to do the same

• Commenting on other people’s articles / blogs – I have been commenting on national newspapers with a byline about the song and links where possible

• Oh, yes, and buying the song !!! During the week of launch I hope we can personally mail as many people as possibly asking them to spend the cost of a pint of beer on this and to ask their friends to do the same

Ideas please

Peter
