FFRUK TV Larry Love Special Feature

love 24 feb 2014

Acoustic headliner Larry Love featuring Brendan O’Connell play an exclusive set for FFRUK Reggae Punk Night and you thought only Nick Cave and Johnny Cash could do murder ballads? Wrong, take a listen to Larry Love (Alabama 3) and Brendan O’Connell (Ghostflighters) and revise your thought processes!  They say that white men can’t sing the blues, but this one can, all the way from the Thames Delta with jazz-infused blues meeting Americana outpourings, infusing Merle Haggard with rebel resistance songs. The pair normally play together as Robert Love’s Ghostflighters and are a regular draw around the Brixton area in particular, their songs echoing the 12 Bar ghosts with their rich blend of poignancy and heartfelt tunes of hope, redemption, despair and all things in-between! A worthy headliner for the night that’s turning Monday into the new Friday!

The BNP did not pass! London, June 2013

The BNP (nazi British National Party) wanted to march to the Cenotaph – but they were stopped by a large peaceful multicultural Unite Against Fascism demonstration. (June 1st 2013) Police protected the nazis and arrested dozens of peaceful young/old, black/white protestors simply for “not moving on when asked to”. But the sheer numbers gathered against the BNP meant they could not pass!

All power to the voice of the people!

Happy 150th birthday London Underground

Interior-of-1938-tube-stock

On January 9, 1863 the first section of the London Underground opened, between Farringdon and Paddington – the first subterranean railway in the world. It was an instant success, copied widely across the globe and giving its name to an entire system. And despite some under-funded and unloved years, it is now enjoying a renaissance.

My first memory of the London Underground was not travelling on it. In the 1950s, I was brought up in a flat on Campden Hill between Kensington and Notting Hill and during hot summer nights I would hear a ghoulish noise that so frightened me I made my mother sit outside the bedroom until I drifted off.
