IF YOU CAN’t BEAT THEM, SHOOT THEM: Songs of Represson
If you can’t beat them, shoot them like stray dogs. Even if they’ve never pulled a gun at anyone: Martin Luther King, Bob Kennedy, Rudi Dutschke, innocent students at Kent State University, Ohio, innocent black farmers and workers in Alabama, young white students pleading for equality between black and white in the South. Nowadays, think Erdogan
And if they do talk about violence against your violence, murder them. Malcolm X. Think Erdogan again.
If there’s too many to shoot, brainwash them so they can repress and censor themselves. Re-read Herbert Marcuse’s “One-dimensional Man” about the interiorisation of repression and repressive structures. Or R.D. Laing’s essays and Ken Loach’s related films about violence-reproduction within the family.
Meanwhile, listen to Marcuse and a bunch of fine artists about repression (EB)
GIVE IRELAND BACK TO THE IRISH
Both Paul McCartney and John Lennon were very clear about the Irish “question” and the “troubles”: Ireland belongs to the Irish and there’s no way occupation and repression can be justified. Much later, U2 sang about Bloody Sunday.
This Radio 68 special is here to remind you of an armed struggle in Western Europe, a struggle which hasn’t been entirely settled. So much effort was mobilised to unite East and West Germany (ring ring goes the cash register), so much effort has gone into avoiding the unity of the Irish. Listen to voices from Ireland in defence of what’s theirs: their land, their language, their culture.
The Indian singer-songwriter Peter LaFarge recorded Johnny Cash’s The Ballad of Ira Hayes and Johnny Cash in turn recorded several Peter LaFarge compositions for his album “Bitter Tears”. In fact, when Johnny Cash discovered he was partly of Indian descent, he decided to record an album’s worth of songs in praise of the Indian culture, libelling against their treatment. Together, LaFarge and Cash have recorded some of the finest folk and blues songs about this HIDDEN and SILENCED GENOCIDE.
Plus a few tracks from “Sacred Spirit. Chants and Dances of the Native Americans”, by The Fearsome Brave.
JUDY COLLINS: IN MY LIFE
“’Released in 1966, ‘In My Life’ features songs by artists who didn’t ring a bell – yet. There are the first appearances of songs by Leonard Cohen on record. And though Randy Newman had been covered by some pop artists, he was yet to release his own album. Jacques Brel had given a show at Carnegie Hall, but could hardly be called a household name in the USA. Peter Brook’s play “Marat/Sade” bore no relation to the popular music business at all, but it was a revolutionary piece of work, also stylistically, and Collins let herself inspire by it.
Whereas this isn’t an album of protest songs, some tunes quite explicitly reflect the values that were soon to define the sixties, such as pacifism (Brel’s ‘La Colombe’), or directly point towards revolutionary lyrics (like Brecht and Weil’s ‘Pirate Jenny’) and even to the French Revolution itself (Marat/Sade, after Peter Brook) “ (© Eddy Bonte)
“In My Life was the album most crucial to Judy Collins’s astonishing evolution from traditional folk singer to an artist not limited to any category. While folk music was certainly an element of this extraordinarily varied set, it was just one ingredient of a record that also drew from classical music, the theater, rock, and more. Some critics did try to classify the sound as “baroque folk” at the time, and if that’s an actual genre, In My Life is certainly the keystone baroque folk album. But the album transcends labels, testifying to her skill at interpreting material by an amazing array of writers in remarkably eclectic musical settings” (…) (by Richie Unterberger http://www.richieunterberger.com/inmylife.html)
