"Also maybe not punk rock as such, but a protest song nonetheless and one that came out of the Tory government that set Britain back about a decade in terms of tolerance.
My favourite haha!
And there's an Exploited song giving one of…"
Everyone knows that the first UK punk groups pre-dated Margaret Thatcher's rise to Prime Minister. Once she took power, though, and set the agenda, it seemed to rejuvenate and radicalize a second wave of bands. Probably Crass's screed against the Falklands War was the most directly confrontational, but what were some of the other well-known British political punk groups/songs of the era? See More
Particularly those in Iowa, North Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Colorado and especially Ohio: Since you're on this list, you already know that we're down to the wire in a very close campaign. I'm not endorsing or opposing anyone, but just urge y'all to maybe turn off the stereo for a few weeks, read up on the candidates and their positions, watch the debates, be wary of cable pundits on both sides and, most important, vote your conscience as well as your economic…See More
"Three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been convicted of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred, over a protest in a cathedral."http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19297373By the time this is posted, it'll be old news to most of you, but maybe not to all. I've read that rallies are being held in NYC and other cities. If anyone's aware of an online petition drive, please let us know. - RickSee More
AW's a legend and should be seen (to be believed, if for no other reason). Sorry for the late notice for those who didn't know. For those who did and were expecting the Minneapolis Conquerors who recorded for Get Hip several years ago, they're not. These Conquerors are KC-based and apparently harbor a garage-psych bent.$10 at the door.http://holdmyticket.com/event/116702See More
"I don't really know about 'other countries,' but in the U.S. it's looking increasingly as if Obama's re-election is going to come down to what Merkel and the ECB decides to do in the summer-early fall months. And that…"
"Ha, at least it wasn't the Mail. That could give a seriousely scary view of a country on the brink of apocalypse. If you read the Telegraph you just start imagining that people in Britain are a bit like boring Republicans.
"I'm not a huge Mumford & Sons fan though I do quite like them. Though of course they aren't 'legendary', like the Beatles, Stones, Who and Bowie etc, but they are hugely popular in the UK amongst a very wide spectrum of…"
Seems some people in the UK are embarrassed that Mumford & Sons were chosen as the entertainment for the White House's state dinner with David Cameron. A columnist at The Telegraph wrote, "Where once we sent the Americans the Beatles, the Stones, the Who and David Bowie, now we can only extend to Mumford & Sons... Imagine the bemusement of senior members of the White House team forced to watch Mumford & Sons play. Only a few weeks ago they were hosting a sizzling White House blues…See More
"What rotten timing to check out on a weekend with the entertainment press still obsessing on Whitney.
Does that mean there are two left? Naturally, Iggy Pop is probably still as healthy as a horse. Go figure.
"Mike, this sounds like something your ancestor would've said in the 18th century: why should we give up the colonies overseas when generations of British citizens have been living there? Today, London won't even allow most…"
