What are you listening to?

One of Bragg's finest:-

Quote

Father mows the lawn and Mother peels the potatoes
Grandma lays the table alone
And adjusts a photograph of the unknown soldier
In this Holy of Holies, the Home
And from the TV an unwatched voice
Suggests the answer is to plant more trees
The scrawl on the wall says what about the workers
And the voice of the people says more salt please

And it has to be said there are many:-

 

"I grew up in a company town
And I worked real hard 'til that company closed down
They gave my job to another man
On half my wages in some foreign land
And when I asked how could this be
Any good for our economy?
I was told nobody cares
So long as they make money when they sell their shares.

 

Can you hear us? Are you listening?
No power without accountability!

I lost my job, my car and my house
When ten thousand miles away some guy clicked on a mouse
He didn't know me, we never spoke,
He didn't ask my opinion or canvass for my vote.
I guess it's true, nobody cares
'Til those petrol bombs come spinning through the air.
Gotta find a way to hold them to account
Before they find a way to snuff our voices out."

Really like these Spanish lasses

 

 

 

 

 

Had never heard of them but quite like this. Noticed they're playing at Electric Ballroom in April so have bought a couple of tickets as they're only £15.

That's cool, I think if they were playing a Friday or Saturday somewhere I'd of gone to.see them.myself. They played Leicester on the last tour but looks like they've swerved us this time.

Poetry and flowers won’t mend this broken heart, but, you can put the hoover round if you want to make a start…

 

lyrical genius!

Just finished the brilliant "Dark" on Netflix and the track "Thunder" by RY X just blew me away, downloaded his two albums "Dawn" and "unfurl" both V.GOOD.

Also Eric Whitacre's Deep Field ( short vid of hubble deep Field images OST)  mind expanding and blowing!
