Fill your ears (Nothing to do with elections)
I mentioned Chumbawumba last week, and lo and behold, The Lost Turntable posts some of their music, which took me straight back to 1997... Meanwhile, Seán has a Proustian moment sparked by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power", taking him back to 1990. I hadn't moved to London in 1990, and sadly missed the Battle of Trafalgar, but that moment - and the perfidy of the Anti-Poll Tax movement's Trot leadership - helped shaped the politics that would make me such a big Chumbawumba fan through the 1990s. As an aside, Do The Right Thing is one of my favourite ever films.
