RC 256: I Have No Name For This (Fix It In The Edit)

[image: John, Hackney 2013]

The same rappers say they’re trooping the frontlines,
and casually use the word ‘Faggot’ as a punchline.
That’s not a man, that’s not a tough guy.
That is a sucker and a fraud to the culture!
Hip Hop is folk music grown from the struggle and
half these fools could put the mic down and run as a Republican.

Which Side Are You On?
Which Side Are You On?

Even friends of mine, jumped on line, just to become my adversary
They felt they were entitled to the dairy I made
They don’t come to chill or behave
And they got, toast ready to burn
Not learnin to live, but they yearnin to take what you earn

Well I, feel the world around me
I’ve found, that others, will bring you down, just to be down
You see – you’ve got to make up your mind, where you wanna be
And where you wanna go with your life

A strangely angry start to an eclectic show that seems all over the place but works out in the end. We go from psychedelic rock and modern gothabilly to hip hop, chiptunes, covers, ska instrumentals, ABBA metal, post-rock, 80’s electro pop, French pop and modern indie. It’s all there!

I’m a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string, I’m a marionette, everybody’s pet, just as long as I sing. (2:16, 174mb)

        Hello from France!
        As always thanks for the great selection.
        FYI “couvre-moi” doesn’t mean “fuck me” in French, it’s just “cover me”.
