Hearts, Minds And Songs

Stuart Bailie | 17:15 UK time, Saturday, 7 February 2009

In case you miised the Hearts And Minds special on protest music the other night, here it is. A special cheer for Cara Robinson and Anto from the Tin Pot Operation, who made a tidy case for music with a message.

    Music without a message is also music with a message, or the gallery wall without paintings, it's a statement.

    I had a chart thrash metal album in the states, ( only NI person to do so?) and the message there was 'money'.

    When I was in East Berlin, bashing the heck out of oil drums, it was just easier than waiting for a car crash to mike up,

    and given the nature of trabi on trabi accidents, a metal sound couldn't be guaranteed.

    The idea of not saying anything is political.
