Songs I’ve Downloaded This Week

The Morning News

Do you want to know why 1987 was actually a pretty damn good year? Then this makes the case pretty well, as does the post it comes from.

SoulBrutha’s “Put The Needle To The Record”

I’m a long time fan of The Redskins, even before seeing on The Tube back in the mists of time and certainly before I understood the malign influence of the SWP on British politics. The band still do all the right things, mixing soul stylings with post-punk sensibility; Go Get Organised!

The Luther Ingrams song is fantastic, just the sort of thing that’ll see me cutting a rug in my living room even if the kids demand I stop with the dad dancing!


Larry conveys the sad news that Buddy Miles has died.


About Andrew Brown

I live in Lewisham, South East London, and spent 9 years as a Labour councillor in the borough between 1997 and 2006.

    the malign influence of the SWP on British politics.

    This realisation dawned on you before or after you became a New Labour hack? Aren’t you slightly stupefied and depressed to find yourself writing this kind of thing? If you think about it, it is precisely the sort of infantile remark that one only ever makes either from within the Latinate corsets of academia, or from within a squalid bureaucratic career structure, in which bloggery is a sort of half-cocked would-be entrepreneurial exercise. If the almighty had not fixed his canon against self-slaughter, I would recommend a sharp drop and a sudden stop over a blade of some kind. In fact, as I’m an atheist, the almighty can do on: go ahead and top yourself you miserable little scrotum.

    i’m amazed anybody thinks that the SWP has any kind of influence, malign or otherwise, on british politics, now or then

    malign influence perhaps of the 19th century contemporary left in the country

    you say your an atheist but the trot left have got more blind faith in dead dogma than most religious people in this country

    Oh Lenin, where’s your belief in history gone!

    Surely the revolution is only one general strike away and you ought to be calling me a class traitor and promising me that when the it comes I’ll be the first to be put against the wall…
