Billy Bragg || Tramshed Cardiff || 19.11.17
Not many musicians can play two hours of material and keep their crowd entertained. This activist however, certainly has a musical repertoire to Bragg about.
“We may just survive/ If the militia of the mind/ Arm against the climate blind” 🌎 good lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise! I’m happily wearing a message from @toriamos for #kochbrothers & #scottpruitt

Anti-Flag - American Fall: Their 11th studio full length just released by Spinefarm Records pressed on random color mix. Soooooooo damn GOOD!! I thought "American Spring" was great but this is even better. They sink their teeth into nearly every social and political issue of today, basically a scream in the face of everything that's wrong with America. IMO this is their best since "The Bright Lights Of America" and one of the best punk records of the year!
“We Insist! (subtitled Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite) is a jazz album released on Candid Records in 1960. It contains a suite which composer and drummer Max Roach and lyricist Oscar Brown had begun to develop in 1959 with a view to its performance in 1963 on the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation. The cover references the sit-in movement of the Civil Rights Movement. The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album one of its rare crown accolades, in addition to featuring it as part of its Core Collection.
The music consists of five selections concerning the Emancipation Proclamation and the growing African independence movements of the 1950s. Only Roach and vocalist Abbey Lincoln perform on all five tracks, and one track features a guest appearance by saxophonist Coleman Hawkins.
It’s been an honor to channel these artists and this great work.
