THE BERMONDSEY JOYRIDERS with JOHN SINCLAIR - Live @ 100 Club, London. (May 2011)
This post is a bit overdue, I’ve been having problems uploading to my Media Fire account, which is interesting, as I’ve heard of several blogs which have had their accounts shut down, this hasn’t happened here yet….but….perhaps it’s only a matter of time in the post Megaupload ‘illegal download’ purge by the US Film Industry before it becomes harder for bloggers to share music. I’ve given up on Media Fire and have started using 4Shared again, any problems with accessing files, leave a comment. Anyway today’s music comes from The Bermondsey Joyriders, and their incendiary brand of South London rock’n’roll blues, here they are joined for some spoken word narration by 60’s counter culture legend John Sinclair; the man who injected the politics into the MC5. Until recently it looked like part of point 10 of John Sinclair’s White Panther Party program; Free Music, Free Culture and Free Media had thanks to the Free Technology of the internet had been achieved, but as mentioned earlier it looks like this freedom is under attack, but hey ho lets go, and keep on keeping on with songs in our hearts to shake the city walls. Noise and Revolution, The Bermondsey Joyriders second album, which also features John Sinclair,is due out sometime this year could be just one of those records judging by these five tracks recorded at the 100 Club in May last year, so if you want any loud Rock’n’Roll, you know what to do!
