Everyone knows a Kenneth.
Even if you don’t know Kenneth, you know a Kenneth.

He’s the guy who puts the ‘Please clean up – your mum does not work here’ sign on the microwave. Not because he wants to lead the charge for cleanliness; he just wants to feel some semblance of power. And, yeah, you know he’s put his sweaty hand up to organize the work Xmas party again this year.

Prepare yourself for flat beers, gourmet (say it with me, “gore-met”) sausage rolls, and petty tyranny. Why can’t Kenneth ever buy a shirt that isn’t one size too big for him? Why is it always untucked a little bit? Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?

The new single from Tape/Off takes a fly on the shit carpet traipse through the strange and horrible world of work Xmas parties. Will you end up using you three minutes thirty-eight seconds of Seal’s ‘Kissed by a Rose’ at Karaoke to reveal your true feelings via a tinny microphone to people too drunk to remember?

You are a pillar of self-control.
