I've also enjoyed listening to the Drums and the Cure Remixes lately.

Heir Apparent - A.N.D. ...Dogro lived on, from 'Graceful Inheritance.'

'The ancient cultures never knew the facts. Technology has given truth where myth had been before. It's time Humanity stepped through the door.'

Has its problems, but refreshing in a way.

I heard a tune on the radio in the mid to late Nineties. It had a Poppy digital rhythm track and could loosely be described as 'reggae'. The only lyrics I can remember were:

"Got to be, part of the working class, yeah
For your friends and family:
Because we need that company... "

Does anyone know the artist and song-title ('Working Class', I presume)?

Another tune from the early Nineties that I would desperately love to track down was more underground and contained the lines:

"Jim is having his party,
Where is the police tonight?"

Any help will be gratefully received.

Rise Against - Ready To Fall.

Rise Against are impressively determined about committing suicide.

She said, "Just go on do what you
Pretend is your life, but
Please don't die on me." -

Wings won't take me
Heights don't phase me
So take a step
But don't look down
Take a step
Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall.\

They'll stop at nothing to get what they want. They'll stop at nothing, so why should you?

I saw Rise Against at Brixton Academy with phoney ass politico Tom Morrelo a few years back. It was awful beyond words - a lecture between every song made up of mostly liberal claptrap but regularly employing the word 'revolution'. And then, as if it hadn't been bad enough, as an encore the dragged on Billy Bragg for some campfire revolutionary songs. It was the musical and political equivalent of having your toenails pulled out.

Rise Against were generally objectionable, that said they are a bit bipolar, as they do opt despite popular trappings to identify with the fairly obscure and marginal genre of punk. They have occasionally been doing a bit better of late live, I'm told, but that might depend. The straightforward suicidal angle there does sort of encapsulate the punk elements of their style, though, so it does have a sort of appeal. Generally their earlier records are a bunch of slogans and Valentine's Day card extracts shouted loudly, which may or may not resemble the word 'revolution,' but there are occasionally some bright spots. Their earlier song 'Black Masks & Gasoline,' does include some of the trends you mention, but also some slightly similar attempts at detachment to the song previously mentioned, such as the perhaps rather cynical take on MLK, 'And I have an American Dream, but it involves black masks and gasoline,' as well as slightly less liberal sentiments than those associated with the band, like, 'We're not putting up with this planet one more day, much less one more year.'

You sort of figure that if Satan, the adversary, made a rock band, it would be quite different from Rise Against.

That may well all be true and I've no reason to doubt such a splendid fellow as yourself but it doesn't alter the fact that regardless of the sentiment expressed, their set up as 2 whole hours of imagination free tedium. The very dullest of metal tinged punk that had a similar effect to swallowing a large dose of Mogadon and the keeping yourself wake by bashing yourself over the head with a croquet mallet.

I've had this on repeat all week. I think my next door neighbour will probably do me an injury next time we see each other. I don't know why it's not a better known reggae song, I mean it's not obscure but it should be better known.
