What will it take for the English to wake up?
Thanks, I like the song (got their album after my mum told me about it), but I'd never seen the video(some of their other songs are a little more leftie "isn't it bad that these people can afford two houses in our area etc")
who are they?
Show of HandsI believe they got slightly more well known a couple of years ago when Wogan started playing Roots on his radio show
"....when Wogan started playing Roots on his radio show."That man will play anything...carrots, parsnips, spuds...you name it he will play it.
Somebody put the same tune/but different video on Guido's site about 2 years ago and he deleted it,I managed to find out who they were as I recorded it before it got deleted,then I did a search on the tune,it's a bit late but you found it.
Prefer the Levellers personally
It seems we've all had an angry week this week - sorry to hear your closing your blog, Guthrum. Think again.
" Prefer the Levellers personally"Now if we could just get then interested in levelling the Westminster asylum they would go to the top of the charts.
Magnificent band. Seen them live thrice. :P
Beautiful.Thank you so much for putting this song up, I never would have seen/heard this otherwise.
Check out Poppy Day from Steve Knightley's solo album - Cruel River. In fact, check out the whole album and all of Show of Hands' back catalogue. They're fantastic!!
Watch their 'Crooked Man' (Dear Tony) video out on YouTube - having watched it & this one, I've bought their album.
Heard at a recent Medical Conference.... An Israeli doctor said "Medicine in my country is so far advanced, that we can take a kidney out of one person, put it in another, and oy vey we have him looking for work in six weeks'.A German doctor said, 'Zat is nussing! In Germany, ve can take a lung out of vun person, unt put it in anuzzer, and have him looking for vurk in four veeks'.A Russian doctor said, 'In my country medicine is so advanced comrades, zat ve can take half a heart from one person, put it in another, and have them both looking for work in two weeks'.The English doctor, not to be outdone, said 'Hah!, That is nothing we can take two arseholes out of Scotland, put them in 10 & 11 Downing Street and have half the country looking for work within twenty-four hours'
The last thing the EU and our Union Government want is for England to stand up for itself. We have been broken into administrative regions for a reason.It seems a bit daft to me that nations like Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to wish for 'independence' that is really just swapping one higher authority for another.
Great vid, great tune, ta for that.
