This is…Rebel Music

A raucous celebration of people power set to a soundtrack of Punk, Reggae and 2Tone

West Bromwich Library, 7pm Wednesday 9th October

It‘s the sweltering hot summer of 1976. The country is in economic turmoil. The far right is on the march. Rock Against Racism puts white punk bands and black reggae bands on the same bill – determined to win the culture war and defeat the National Front. Three teenage music fans, Denise, Trudi and Andrew, join the fight for the soul of working class Britain. The trio navigate racial politics and social upheaval in Birmingham alongside their own turbulent teenage years. Can their friendship survive? The new play from Robin French and JMK Award-winning director Alex Brown is a celebration of the diverse musical legacy of the Midlands. The REP have united with award-winning gig theatre specialists Middle Child (All We Ever Wanted Was Everything) for this raucous story of people power, set to a soundtrack of Punk, Reggae and 2Tone. Join the rebellion. This event is suitable for people aged 18 + years old

Live at Why Not?

David Benjamin Blower performs his new LP ‘We Really Existed and We Really Did This’ at the inaugural Outsideleft Night Out, live at Bearwood’s Why Not Coffee shop on Saturday, September 28th…and it’s free!!

Highly regarded as a folk musician and a radical poet, he says of We Really Existed and We Really Did This “The title is reaching for the feeling you get when you let it sink in that your species has triggered an era of mass extinction, a chain reaction of destructive weather phenomena and a new geological age. No species has ever done the amazing things we’re doing now in 4.6 billion years of the earth’s natural history. All of which might result in our own extinction. At first you’re horrified and desperate and anguished. And then you laugh and cry and it feel the sheer wonder of the fact that we ever came to exist in the first place. It’s a record of folk poetry type songs and soundscapes, with nods to Ennio Morricone, and a lot of sadness and joy.”
