Never heard that one, nice find
heard it on a dlx1 uploaded mannaseh tape last night (on this page: http://www.mixcloud.com/laserworshiper/ - i think he already passed you these tapes for your page Ringo)
going by the lyrics i wonder if Rock Against Racism might have had an influence on that... March against XXX gets replaced with Rock against XXX for a verse...
its from 1992 i think
March Against Church & State...not a lyric ive heard on a JA reggae record before
sounded a lot bottom heavier on the mannaseh show fwiw
its a big tune - need to check the rest of the album

Moja Nya - Freedom For Trots
before my time
The Grunwick dispute was an industrial dispute involving trade union recognition at the Grunwick Film Processing Laboratories in Willesden, North London, that led to a two-year strike between 1976 and 1978. During a decade of industrial unrest, the Grunwick dispute became a cause célèbre of trade unionism and labour relations law, and "at its height involved thousands of Trade Unionists and police in confrontations, ...over 500 arrests on the picket line and frequent police violence." The total of 550 arrests made during the strike was at the time the highest such figure in any industrial dispute since the General Strike of 1926. Journalist Paul Foot described the dispute as "a central battleground between the classes and between the parties."(1:15) The dispute was reported nightly on the national television news, depicting the often violent clashes between the strikers and the Metropolitan Police'sSpecial Patrol Group. Grunwick was the first time that this paramilitary police unit had been deployed in an industrial dispute. The mostly female, immigrant, East African Asian strikers – dubbed "strikers in saris" by the news media – were led by Jayaben Desai, whose membership of the union was later suspended following her hunger strike outside the Trades Union Congress (TUC) headquarters in November 1977. This was also the first dispute where the majority of strikers were from an ethnic minority and still received widespread support from the labour movement – previous disputes involving immigrant workers which had taken place in Leicester and Southall had "remained marginalised" and had even led to "open and ugly racism on the part of white union members and their leaders."
Max Romeo - Warning Warning
more revolutionary rather than specifically socialist...heads a go roll
Apologies if already posted but for me it's the first tune came to mind. Mind you, so much roots reggae deals with socialist themes it's hard to know where to start... Still, tuff rhythm and amazing vox, winner
Water... As basic a human right as exists...,
Dont think anyone posted this
Linton Kwesi Johnson - Di Black Petty Booshwah
top, top thread
I needed this thread...
Had a London reggae station on the interweb while doing the catmas cards.
Some festive reggae I can cope with. Some would have been best left not done.
On which seasonal note, I offer
as the nearest compromise...
I think this is new...
Does National Socialist count?
bit weird tbh
