James Connolly's Songs of Freedom on Folk World


"Where oh where is our James Connolly ..., one verse of Patrick Galvin before turning into James Connolly's cheerful "A Festive Song". Nine lyrics are written by Connolly himself, three are about him (Dominic Behan's "Connolly Was There", the traditional "James Connolly the Irish Rebel", and as already said Patrick Galvin's "Where Is James Connolly"), plus Jim Connell's classic labour song "The Red Flag". Mat Callahan set himself to the task of making modern music (Celtic and American folk rock) out of obsolete revolutionary songs. He wrote original music to Connolly's lyrics, sometimes he used old airs such as "Clare's Dragoons," designated by Connolly himself. The instrumentation is acoustic: guitar, fiddle, accordion, uilleann pipes, whistles, and Irish harp, plus bass and drums." —Tom Keller, Folk World

"In this segment my guest is David McNally — noted academic, activist and author. David is professor at York University and active in a number of grassroots organizations and movements in the Toronto area, including the Greater Toronto Workers’ Assembly. He is the author of numerous books, including his most recent Deutscher-prize winning Monsters of the Market and Global Slump: The Economics and Politics of Crisis and Resistance, published in 2010. I caught up with David to get an update on what has happened to the themes in global political economy he explored in this latter book."Political Eh-conomy Radio

Ian Glasper's The Day the Country Died is '...thoroughly informative yet still concise & interesting...'


"Each band entry runs between a few pages to around thirty pages for the likes of key Anarcho-Punk bands such as Crass, Conflict, Subhumans, Flux Of Pink Indians, and Rudimentary Peni. As well as the texts, we get rare pictures of each & every one of the bands covered too...so as I keep mentioning this truly is a definitive study of the scene, and clearly it must have taken  Glasper a very long time to interview, compile & research this book.

Obviously this book is a must have item for anyone who has even a passing interest in the Anarcho-Punk scene, but I can also see this appealing to anyone who enjoys any form of confrontational music or sonic art. As the book’s highly readable & rewarding through-out, and it's thoroughly informative yet still concise & interesting over the whole of it’s near-on 500 page length."—Roger Batty, Musique Machine
