The Iain Duncan Smiths offer up a take on The Smith's 'Bigmouth Strikes Again' only a matter of hours after news broke of Lord Ashcroft's allegations

Morrissey-inspired, anti-tory satirical band The Iain Duncan Smiths recently gained some attention for such Smiths covers as ‘There Is A Light That Always Goes Out’ and ‘Girlfriend In A Coma (She’s Fit For Work).

Now, having wasted no time at all, they have written and recorded their own take on ‘#piggate’ as it has come to be known, and it’s called, you guessed it, ‘Pig’s Mouth Strikes Again’. A take, of course, on The Smiths’ 1986 track ‘Bigmouth Strikes Again’, you can hear it above.
