This Human Condition is back with a new EP  called Transcentury.
The result is 4 electronic tracks inspired by flamboyant characters. Transcentury is a made up word by the band, meaning people who are not afraid to be different and stand out from the crowd. The title track invites you into their world and lists the people and the albums they are inspired by and has a dance & experimental feel.  Disco bunny is a positive upbeat futuristic disco-inspired track about a street performer called Pablo who dresses up as 'The Disco Bunny’. Sapphire is atmospheric synth about a man on the streets of Bristol (UK) who dresses in women's clothing and looks like a carnival queen. 
Anthemic “Pride In All Of US’ is about LGSM activist Mark Ashton (Pride Movie) and is documentary in style. 

An interview with This Human Condition

Mister Minchie and Jamie Jamal talking music. 

  Meeting Michael Eavis.

Jamie and his Mum met Michael Eavis on 12/6/18 in Bath. Mister-Minchie was there but too shy for a photo with the Legend. They presented Michael with a copy of their new single and told him it was about the excitement of going to his festival. Michael asked Jamie if he went to the festival in 2017? Jamie replied Yes I did, I also performed on the Mini Pyramid at Williams Green with my band. "Oh did you how marvellous", he said. 

Quote from Michael Eavis

"I'm Thrilled you have taken the trouble of writing a song about my festival"


Disco Bunny was premiered by Rusty Egan on Artefaktor Radio
