LAST POST........of 2011!


Well that’s 2011 been and gone. Quite an eventful year all in all from nature showing its force with the Tsunami in Japan to the recent death of Kim Jong Il in North Korea, what else has happened…..


Riot torn England Phone hacking , The deaths of Bin Laden and Gaddafi. Occupy London, New York. Protests, Students, middle classes. Eurozone economic collapse. The Arab spring uprisings, give rise to fundamental extremists to gain power in ‘free and fair’ elections. Syria is heating up, but no Western intervention.


I wonder what’s in store for next year?


2012 The Queens diamond jubilee year. God save her, and her Fascist regime where troubled families are gonna be targeted by state employed ‘trouble shooters’ A green an (un)pleasant land where more troops are gonna be deployed in London next year to defend the(ir) Olympic games than were deployed in Afghanistan. A free and democratic country where police have been given the power to use water cannons and rubber bullets on protestors, and under extreme circumstances real bullets. That’s if we believe what we read in the great free press, only time will tell or at least we may find out in July, when I’m thinking that maybe the London Olympics will attract protest groups from across the world to come to the capital and have some games of their own, along side groups from the UK. A united movement of global dissent and discontent.


Sandwiched between the United States of America and Europe is the state of not so great Britain, or UK plc as I’ve heard it referred to. A country were it takes politicians two months at goodness knows what cost to work out that celebrity culture has a detrimental effect on young people. We are told that austerity is the answer while renting panda bears from China because it is good for the economy.


I hope all these TV Chefs choke. They make me sick with their cookery programs that they force feed an already bloated audience. Just like the DIY/Home and garden make over programs that came before them they are ammunition in the fight for the hearts and minds of the people. ….Dum Dum Bullets for the Dumb dumb masses.


2012.…The year the world ends, if we believe the Maya civilisation, or is it just that some peoples world will come to an end when they’re evicted from the lifestyle they bought into that they can no longer afford to pay for. When the going gets tough, there’s always a course of state prescribed anti-depressants available to keep the fear and anxiety away from the door.


With the continuing economic crisis in the Eurozone I expect the spectre of Far Right forces may start to rise. We’ve been here before in the post second world war period. Lest we forget!


The more complacent and compliant we are, the more complicit we are in their con. We are all guilty!
Forget New Years resolutions, lets have a New Years Revolution!

What did Joe Strummer think?




“Marx was something of an old fart. He was an authoritarian and a centralist and what he proposed was essentially the same as capitalism, except with a different set of people in charge. In any kind of realistic political change you have to start on the inside, by changing the central value system. You can’t start by changing the structure, change has to be a personal choice.” - Joe Strummer 1981. Painting of Joe by Knox 2011.

999 - Live @ Markthalle, Hamburg 28/10/80


No introductions or grand narratives needed for 999, one of Britains great punk bands. This recording is a short, sharp and sweet set of songs pilfered from a torrent site, with respect to the original uploader, and posted here for your enjoyment!

Some thoughts/ideas that haven't made it any further than what's written below.


A Weberian nightmare where bureaucracy controls the whole show, targets overseen by a mass of the middle management class. They are the problem.


The value on material things, ‘The Stuff’ is too high, people are now living with its costs. High standards of living cost a lot to maintain, especially if they’ve been living the champagne lifestyle on lemonade money.

It should not just about the money, that’s why we are in this mess. Money corrupted pure Socialist values. The working class sold out to buy their council houses, a new working class was born, one that worked to consume, a consumer class

The cycle will only break when people start to rethink about money being the driving force. They’ve peddled this shit for too long.


One group that haven’t taken to the streets with dissatisfaction and in opposition to the politicians polices are the elderly.
Those living in Care homes or receiving home care. Those on a poverty pension
A hundred thousand altzhimers sufferers on the streets of London now what a sight that would be. The Grey Brigade


Nearly fell into the whole Public V’s Private Sector trap. The divide and rule tactics of the people in power; The Ploiticians and Trade Union Leaders. They say they represent the people and their members, when in truth they just represent themselves.
No I don’t agree with the motivations behind the pensions protest. I’ve never earned enough to pay into a pension fund, and I find it insulting that people earning £25,000 + a year consider themselves poor. To some people on the pensions protest it was just as much about ‘the stuff’ as the August Riots were to those involved then. I mean why else where there first time strikers on the march, was it was because nothing those in power had done had effected them before? I saw placards with “Hands off my pension” printed on them???? Excuse me but isn’t that a contradiction in terms…. I mean the words Union, unite and unison convey a feeling of togetherness not self individualism.


Private Pension pots were plundered by New Labour, no one defended theirs.
Public services could have taken strike action over numerous issues, for example Teachers Unions when targets and league tables were introduced.



Still it’s good to see the non-elected Lib Con government getting another kicking from more people they’ve pissed off, the middle classes are mobilizing themselves.

I really should be writing a review of last nights gig by Knox and The Trailer Trash Orchestra at Club 85 in Hitchin, followed by some ranting about David Camerons rejection of Europe, then I was gonna post some muzak by either 999, Chelsea or The Vibrators, but….I’m feeling rather fragile, so this is all yer gonna get until the next time.

News from the frontline.


I work for the Not so Healthy public Service, where they have gone into a PFI deal with the private sector. This has resulted in people doing the same job, but getting paid a different wage for it. How this got past the unions is beyond me, but hey at least the workers are all in it together!

"FIVE YEARS MY BRAIN HURTS A LOT"


“This blog will evolve as it starts to revolve in front of your very eyes…. I'm making this shit up as I go along…. Artwerk, poems, rantings ravings and music, whatever takes my fancy and comes out of my archives and into my brain. Oh you lucky, lucky people, for what you are about to receive may you be truly (un)grateful.” - Dec 3rd 2006.
Those were the first words I wrote and posted as NuzzProwlingWolf, a mission statement? No just a statement. The mission….To make people think! What they think….Well that’s down to them/you. Over the last 5 years I’ve been accused of being a Marxist Lefty, an Anarchist, a Right Wing Daily Mail reader, and had my mental state questioned. I wouldn’t label myself as any of those, and as for being mad, well…. No more than the rest of you, anyway….Isn’t it about time the lunatics took over the asylum? Over the last 5 years A lot has changed but much has stayed the same. Visitors have come and gone, thanx to each and everyone of you. I’ve aired my opinions, vented my spleen. Some have agreed, some have disagreed. I’ve tried to remain objective about my objections, and at times failed. Quality control has been a bit haphazard, but I stand by everything I’ve posted, even the stuff that might appear to contradict itself. I’ve shared some muzik, some have liked it, some have not. I’ve suffered technical difficulties, both mechanical and human, that have restricted what I’ve been able to post. Some people have left comments, others haven’t. I respond to some, others I don’t, it’s nothing personal, I’d love to get into debating issues I’ve raised but I don’t always have the time. But most of all I’ve had fun with whatever’s been posted, and been incontact with some good people in blogland. As for the next five years? Who knows…… but one thing I know/think/feel. is that The times are gonna be a changing and we can either be the solution to the problem or the problem. If we let ‘our leaders’ carry on leading us down their well trodden roads there are gonna be some pretty major problems! Revolution or evolution? You decide. Here’s to the next 5 years!!
