Bez from the Happy Mondays has founded his own political party. It's called The Reality Party. And he wants your vote.
Bez chose to hold the launch at Wangies Bar, his local pub in Eccles, Greater Manchester.
Before things got going we wandered around and asked people what they thought of Bez. Most of them spoke of him as a local hero.
People were mostly Labour voters, but none of them showed much enthusiasm for Ed Miliband's party. A few people said they were thinking of voting for UKIP in the European parliament elections.
Bez told BuzzFeed he got into politics to fight against fracking for shale gas in nearby Barton.
'Bez the bee-keeper' is one of the central images of The Reality Party's campaign.
Before Bez speaks, we hear from Jackie Anderson, The Reality Party's candidate for Salford council and their big hope for an electoral breakthrough.
By the time Bez takes to the stage the pub is rammed.
"We don’t want to get dictated to by corporate bankers and the fourth reich. My granddad didn’t die in the war for fuck all," Bez said to cheers.
Afterwards Bez had a chat about The Reality Party's potential reach. He said UKIP was set up by bankers to drive the UK's political system towards fascism.
In his autobiography Bez detailed how he once dripped LSD into a cut on his forehead in 1986. What's The Reality Party's policy on drugs?
But of all the other parties, Bez said the Green Party were "alright", although he seems to think they wanted to set up a dictatorship.
As for Labour, Bez says the party was "supposed to defend the people and be for the working class, but now they only have slightly different polices from the Conservatives".
But what about the Green Party? Surely they share some of the goals of The Reality Party?
"The Green Party are alright," Bez says. "We've got the same views, and that, but I'm not a communist, I believe in democracy, and I want to keep a democracy, without no communist regime, which basically means a dictatorship. What I'm looking for is true democracy. That's where I differ from Green Party."
