Everyone needs a helping hand to travel this long twisting road called life, not everyone can travel alone, there are too many dangers and disorders out there, it doesn't matter if you are are the weakest female or the strongest male, everyone now knows these are not the correct phrases a female can be strong too and a lot more men are weaker than they seem.
A band that vomited onto the music scene in the early 1990s did not want to be boxed or pigeon holed by the establishment they almost ended up destroying themselves with their mind abuse and crude raw tragedy that was played out before the British music press, in all this anarchy and doubt the band survived and the band leader, Ginger in turn saved so many music listeners, they became family it was not just Earth versus The Wildhearts anymore, it was the band and their fans fighting against all the crimes this world was guilty of.
