Mariam’s Cake video

After all the excitement of the last few weeks three chord political punkelele madness, here is a little something to reminding myself and the world that I have subtler days too…

#fuckoffbacktoEton launch Monday 7pm at Occupy Democracy, Parliament Square


The ‘Fuck Off Back To Eton’ for #1 launch will take place at 7pm on Monday, Parliament Square c/o Occupy Democracy.

You can hear the track below and buy it via iTunes, Spotify and others from Monday. Proceeds from sales will go to the Radical Housing Network and the Land Workers Alliance after I have given a bit of money to people who have given up their time to make the video and record the song.

On 5th April at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Pub in Walthamstow, I am putting on a show called ‘I’ll Be Good To The Land; A History Of Land Rights And Protest In Folk Song And Story’ as part of the Community Food Growers Network spring events series.

I will be joined on the evening by many friends and a special guest called Hugh Lupton as we unpick the people’s history of this fair isle.

Hugh is one of the most brilliant and widely respected story tellers in the country. You can catch a sneaky peak of him below on youtube.
