A People's History of Godspeed You! Black Emperor

G_d’s Pee AT STATE’S END!

From The Rebel Beat on anchor dot fm

For the last quarter-century, Godspeed You! Black Emperor have been putting out epic, orchestral, anarchistic rock music. Their albums and legendary live performances have fuelled radical social movements in their hometown of Montreal, and all around the world. To celebrate the release of the band's latest album G_d's Pee at State's End!, The Rebel Beat is doing a 2-part people's history of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. This first episode features a conversation between host Aaron Lakoff, anarchist graphic designer Kevin Lo, and Sharmeen Khan of No One Is Illegal Toronto and Upping The Anti. We examine how the band's music has been interwoven with some of the greatest moments of social upheaval of our time, from the protests against the war in Iraq, to the massive Quebec student strike of 2012, to the current pandemic.

insurgent | emo | rap

From Solecast

Erda makes emo inspired rap music with an anarchist bent. Their music expresses both the existential angst of our epoch and the spirit of resistance. Based out of NY, Erda has a background in various genres of music, and this lends itself to a very unique aesthetic and approach to hip-hop. In this conversation we talk about bridging the personal with the worldly, Erda's background with farming and permaculture and life under the algorithm.

Anarchism and Punk – Call for Chapters

Anarchism and Punk – Call for Chapters

From jimdonaghey at noblogs

Anarchism and Punk – edited volume
There has been a wealth of excellent writing about punk over the last few years. The best of these have been the critical reflections that pull free of the quagmire of 1970s nostalgia, and the critical engagements that see beyond the narrow scope of punk’s Anglo-American birthing ponds. This Call for Chapters proposes to continue and extend that exciting work by considering in closer detail the relationships between anarchism and punk, with a contemporary emphasis and a global spread.

It was a sunny Sunday morning on 28 March 2004 when everything changed for the Norfolk-based anarchist free party crew Brains Kan.

DJ Manarchy, a former member of the crew, was dancing in front of a speaker stack with hundreds of other ravers in a warehouse on the Norwich Airport Industrial Estate when a friend came over and told him to take a look outside.

Anarchy Bang: Introducing Episode 43 – Anarchist Music

From Anarchy Bang

It used to be that the anarchist space was also a cultural space. Music was a big part of that space and mostly is no longer. Why is that? Or if not then why is the space that is about music seems to not exactly be about other aspects of the anarchist space. This week let's talk about anarchist music and about music that appeals to anarchists. Did anarchist music end at Tub Thumping? Or should we take heed at anarchist music lists like this one? https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6ddept8PXHsXGmtPgNCZU0

Can the police be set on fire?

"Fuck gender, take a molotov, burn the police." These few words written on the sign are enough in today's Czech Republic to drive you to court. This is what happened to the anarchist songwriter performing under the name Beltza Gorria. The first hearing in her case took place on 9 July in the building of the District Court in Karviná. This was preceded by annoying her family and without sending her a cops summon (apparently it's harder than sending e-mails, sms and calling), they launched a search for her. After long secrets, she eventually learned that she was accused of "inciting the crime of violence against an official" and the police expressed their efforts to combine her activism with the Phoenix 2 case, although it makes no sense at all.
