Pete Gardiner “Dangerous People” – Listen

Pete Gardiner alludes to several kinds of ‘Dangerous People‘ on this new single which channels rage and despair in about equal measures.  Who’s the bigger threat, the poisoner keeping shtum about what he’s been doing “no fool admits to murder whilst he’s being tried for theft” or those thinly disguised people responsible  for the turmoil in the world’s political situation: “how do you like what’s going on in America ?  How do you like what’s going on down town ? How do you like the salesman on your doorstep?”  The Northern Ireland based singer adds that his aim was “to write something in the style of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Everybody Knows’ where the lyrics somehow say everything about where we are in the world without being specific about anything.
