Faithless Feel The (Live 8) Faith

Sister Bliss from Faithless chatted to Skrufff this week about last week's Live 8 concerts and said she was delighted to have played at the gig as well as with the message the event delivered to politicians.

"Dido told me that she'd been asked to do it months ago and I was immediately itching to be involved because I felt ideologically and musically that's where Faithless have been coming from the very beginning," said Bliss, "Mixing politics and music has never been an alien concept for us."

I think Live 8 shows that the world wants to be compassionate, the rich nations are finally realising that there's this ridiculous inequality between rich and poor and there's enough to go round, what are we fucking around for? I think people will become more and more pissed off with politicians and their lack of efficacy and they'll be a revolution, she said, whilst mopping the floor," she laughed.

Speaking the day before London's bombings, she had harsh words for Tony Blair suggesting 'I think he realises he's lost a lot of ground over Iraq and that it's actually crucial that he's seen to be compassionate.'

"Which is ironic given that he's fucking blown people to smithereens and hundreds of thousands of people have been killed or had their whole infrastructure fucked," she continued, "But if he gives with one hand and takes away with the other it's better than not giving at all."
