Today’s Music to keep me ANGRY in Lockdown – Phil Ochs

Today I’m so angry at the blatant Tory propaganda machine and its strangling of democracy via control of the press and BBC that I wanted something that reflected that.

I wanted something overtly political.

I thought about Gang of Four, then Buffy St Marie. I thought of Billy Bragg but I’ve already had him (as well as Stiff Little Fingers). I’ve had Dylan and Bob Marley and Roy Harper. I’ve had Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie.

So today I’m going for Phil Ochs. I need a big slice of his anger and political idealism!!

Here’s to you Phil!! Your music lives on!! Your sentiments are even more important now!!

Where are the new generation of angry poet rebels??

I'd like to hear from you...
