Ghetto Funk presents: Icons Remixed Vol. 2 – The Whole Damn Review! (pt 2)


 If you like bouncy beaty breaky goodness, and haven’t been living in a cave for the last week, you’ll be aware that those nice chaps at Ghetto Funk HQ have given us an early Christmas present in the form on the follow-up to their ground breaking ‘Icons’ album.

For some unknown reason, I took it upon myself to review the whole shebang -who says I’m at a loose end on holiday from work, eh?

Sadly I ran out of beer, and split this into a game of two halves – I’ve gone all Motson haven’t I …

Still, here’s part two.

(for part one covering tunes 1-10 look here, for the ‘missing’ tracks, I covered them in my first look blogpost)

Three on a Thursday #43


Ahoy campers!

How the devil are you?

Good?

I’m feeling rather chipper this week, for no particular reason really (other than the fact that I’ve only got twelve days work left at work this year, and the fact I’ve had a couple of pints) so this is definitely an upbeat selection for your ears this week.

If you’re out and about tonight I’ll be down at No. 51 Stokes Croft having a beer with Rackabeat & Bar-low, and Hidden Riddim at the launch of their new night, so if you like these selections, you can come and buy me a pint.

Right, onwards to the music!

Funk Against Fascism


Back in the dark days of the early Seventies, spurred on by the like of Enoch Powells “Rivers of Blood” speech, the National Front and associated far Right groups were on the rise, and were generally making life miserable for any immigrants in the vicinity.

Rock Against Racism, founded in 1976, was punk music’s attempt to raise awareness of the issue, and to counter the brainwashing of young people by, well, a bunch of jack booted thugs. They organised series of  huge marches and multi-cultural gigs, supported by the luminaries of the day, such as  The Clash, BuzzcocksSteel PulseX-Ray Spex,  Stiff Little FingersAswad and Elvis Costello, to persuade people to turn their back on the fascists and embrace the melting pot of modern Britain.

In 2002, driven by the rise in activity of the National Front and BNP, the Anti-Nazi League and Unite Against Fascism relaunched the concept, this time called “Love Music, Hate Racism“, and carrying forward the founders of Rock Against Racism ideas, in that modern music is influenced by many cultures and traditions, and that it can be used to bring different kinds of people together. The modern run of gigs have been supported by Ms Dynamite, Hard -Fi, Akala, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Estelle,  Lethal Bizzle, Roll Deep Crew and Basement Jaxx amongst a horde of others.

(Update – I’ve removed this from Soundcloud, as I’ve only got so much space, but it’s available on Postbocks here)
