HAPPY MONDAYS AND BLACK GRAPE STARS JOIN WE ARE THE REALITY PARTY ELECTION SINGLE
Bez and the We Are The Reality Party have launched an incredibly catchy new single called Right Now Is Forever, aiming to get to Number One on election day May 7th, as the Party aims to get elected in Salford and Eccles, and Worsley and Eccles South.
The double A sided single comes complete with another track, Bez's Manifesto, in which the Happy Mondays star sets out his politics, and he's joined on the tracks and four re-mixes by soul stars Loretta Heywood and Jennie Bellestar - lead singer of 80s group The Belle Stars - Happy Mondays' Mark Day and Black Grape's Kermit Leveridge.
