about

“All Bing's songs operate exactly on an impossibly narrow line between conviction and spoof. There is an exact refusal of certainty, the tone of an unprecedented fusion of Douanier and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.” - Harry Gilonis

Songs of love and hate (but mostly hate) from England's foremost protest singer - now living in exile and working as a language teacher in Catalonia. Backed by the mighty Ideals (featuring Rob Storey, Chris Cornetto, Clive Bell), Bing comes across as part tinpot dictator, part doomed lover, part drowned rat. From the hilarious but moving “Anarchists in Love” to the trippy travelogue of “Sechuan,” Bing commands entire continents and ideologies, capturing hearts and minds with his rapier wit and sneering upper lip. Lyrically dazzling, musically to the point, psychotropically topical and politically pertinent, “Dizzy” is a both a chilling monument to one man's ego and a warm bath for the rest of us.
