I like listening to some of Kmfdm's stuff every now and then.

Damn, I've not listened to them or heard anyone referring to them in a looong time... Blast from my past!

They're alright, bit of a shame about a subset of their following being right-wingers and the Columbine-glorifying types (the Sascha guy's repeatedly distanced himself from both). Nothing you can really do about that it seems; I've encountered some right-wingers who like Rage Against the Machine (not to mention this)...

I like this track too

Pop Group, just discovered them. Not bad. Their sound kind of reminds me of Talking Heads.

Audio from the ACG/CWO meeting in Leicester yesterday on No War But The Class War - we hope that we'll be able to get it up soon so everyone can have a listen.

Came across this 70s German group Ton Steine Scherben, their earlier stuff is supposed to be anarchist and anti-capitalist

here's also their saxophonist/manager destroying a table with an axe during an interview

Shame he didn’t give his sax the same treatment. The devils instrument.

Phew, that was a relief - I was expecting some wanky jazz noodlery but this wasn’t bad.
Ok, so whilst I think the world would be a considerably better place without its existence, there have been a few instances where the saxophone has yielded pleasing results, namely the bass version of the instrument in glam rock, Roxy Music’s Let's Stick Together, and best of all, here, where it doesn’t sound much like a saxophone at all...

Must have listened to this a hundred times. If you like grime listen from the start, it’s another level to pretty much any other rapper. For the best bit, which would more accurately be described as poetry rather than rap, go to 12:00. Seriously, it’s magnificent.

Oh I have no opinion on Naked City, just know them from that one scene in that Michael Haneke movie.

I haven't been able to get into non-American rap/hip-hop for whatever reason.

Here's a remixed version of Nas' "World is yours" off Illmatic, which btw is an incredible but flawed album, with the guy from a Tribe Called Quest (heard one album of theirs and it didn't really speak to me; their sampling of Lou Reed's "Walk on the wild side" was interesting, and a lot of their music has nice production and generally sounds good). It would have been nice if Nas developed more in the direction of political rap groups like the Coup or Run the Jewels, minus Riley's apparent Maoism etc. Anyway what I like about this is Nas responding to the powerlessness of proletarians (obviously and more specifically proletarians of color) with the scarface-inspired "the world is yours". Although I guess the communist interpretation of that, workers creating the world's wealth and having the collective power to get rid of capitalism etc., is less common than of just wanting to become Tony Montana.
