We're on strike again in a few days, objecting to our pension being reduced, our contributions increased and our working lives extended (I don't mind the latter, it's the combination that infuriates me).
So here's a little something from Test Dept. and the Striking South Wales Miners' Choir, a hurried collaboration between London punk/electronic troublemakers and the miners in 1984. Where has the political music gone?
The first one is classic Welsh Male Voice Choir
Then we have the Stalinist/Scottish 'Victory'
'"Long Live British Democracy Which Flourishes And Is Constantly Perfected Under The Immaculate Guidance Of The Great, Honourable, Generous And Correct Margaret Hilda Thatcher. She Is The Blue Sky In The Hearts Of All Nations. Our People Pay Homage And Bow In Deep Respect And Gratitude To Her. The Milk Of Human Kindness."
and finally the genuinely haunting 'Comrade Enver Hoxha'.
