The Very Existence of the Queen Is Against Any Notion of Democracy
16 May 2011
This is just one of a number of compelling charges set down by Morrissey in an article written for Hot Press, to coincide with the Queen's visit to Ireland
The Queen's visit to Ireland is part of a new Palace PR campaign to re-invent the Windsors. The message from the Queen will be the same as ever: who we are born to is more important than what we achieve in life.
It should be remembered by the Irish people that as recently as the turn of the 1980s the Queen supported Margaret Thatcher by not dismissing Thatcher as she allowed hunger strikers to die at the Maze Prison, most famously Bobby Sands, who was 27 years old. As Sands starved to death in protest at being tagged a 'criminal' and not a 'political prisoner' by the Thatcher government, the Queen sat in her Palace and said nothing. If the Queen had any human feelings for the Sands family or other hunger strikers then she did not express them.
The full meaning of the Monarchy is, like the Queen herself, a complete mystery to most people. It is protected from any investigations by ridiculous stories of trivia and wedding dresses and on-again-off-again soap-drama romances. The most revealing statement came from Commander Christine Jones of the Metropolitan Police last month, when she warned that any British people carrying anti-royal placards who are "seen in the vicinity of the royal wedding would be removed under the Public Order Act." This means that any political dissent in England is silenced in order to protect the royals, which in itself goes against every principle of democracy.
The very existence of the Queen and her now enormous family – all supported by the British taxpayer whether the British taxpayer likes it or not – is entirely against any notion of democracy, and is against freedom of speech. For a broad historical view of what the Queen is and how she "rules", examine Gaddafi or Mubarak, and see if you can spot any difference.
You won't be able to.
The Queen also has the power to give back the six counties to the Irish people, allowing Ireland to be a nation once again. The fact that she has not done so is Fascism in full flow. What else could it be? Name one other European country that is controlled by its neighbour?

Last thursday i did
take a trip down to
rough trade to see
the oscillation play my old
chum chris wackrow is in the band
and have been meaning to see
them for an age they rocked i loved
them they are very psychedelic
and the visuals are wonderfull
as well they have a new record out
below is a write up about it
bye for now
The Oscillation - Veils 2LP
Release Date: 12th April 2011
Finally, after some delays, comes the vinyl edition of "Veils". It comes in a 2 x LP format with a hand stamped insert that includes a digital download version of the album. There are a handful of limited edition posters which will go into the first orders placed. The LP will come with a special bonus disc featuring six previously unreleased ambient tracks whilst stocks last.
...It is almost three years since the release of The Oscillation's debut album 'Out Of Phase' for DC recordings. In those three years the band have played live all over the world to great acclaim and Demian Castellanos has clearly honed his musical vision. Whilst the debut album was dominated by stripped back grooves and motorik rhythms 'Veils' sees The Oscillation sound mature in numerous ways: song craft and introspection adding to the already rich sonic textures to create a powerful and varied new collections of songs. From the industrial pulse of 'Future Echo' to the haunted b-movie swagger of 'Fall', the disco dub fury of 'Telepathic Birdman' to the ecstatic melancholy of 'See Through You', the album features a remarkable spectrum of sonic experiences that range from beautifully crafted melodic songs to droning, no-wave chaos.

In the summer of 1976, Dave Bowie and his special friend mr Iggy Pop set out to make a new career in a new town.
dave Bowie moved seeking to escape the personal madness and the massive coke habit he had picked up in Los Angeles, he settled in the undistinguished area of Schöneberg which was noted mainly as the setting for Christopher Isherwood's Goodbye to Berlin.Dave moved to Hauptstrasse 155.While in berlin dave made three lps and produced two of mr pops they hang out drank coffee drank beer eat out went clubing took drives out of the city,
So while in berlin i made the trip over to his old flat the street his house is on reminded me of a suburb of burssels theres not much to see so after i took a few photo me and my kate went to the cafe that mr.pop and bowie used to use for morning coffees and night time beers we had a drink it was nice and chilled, it is a gay cafe/bar berlins oldest one i think. there was only one other person in the bar having a beer we paid up and left and headed into town to see some more of berlin.

hello out there
here are some photos

show on at the BOUROUINA GALLERY
see below for more info
Opening: 29 April, 6 - 9 p.m.
The artists will be attending.
Exhibition: 30 April 2011 - 28 May 2011
In 2007 London based artist collective Le Gun discovered a briefcase believed to have belonged to the late jazz pirate and trout tickler George Melly. Snapshots, a diary and other items in the case revealed a narrative based around a room which Le Gun attempt to reconstruct into three-dimensional reality. "The room is a collection of intrinsically linked and inseparable elements. Individual pieces of work that compliment, and validate each other, giving each other life, history and future." (Harry Malt)
Parallel to the exhibition runs:
A film program curated by Markus Draper. On show in a private film room within the gallery. For screening dates and further information please visit www.kinototal.info
On Show at the opening: BARE BONES Video Selection
"Young directors from around world, working in all mediums, are invited to make lo-fi, lo-brow, black-and-white, DIY, short films of a minute or less. They are encouraged to self-produce these works in less than a couple days from idea to completion and keep their voices and process raw and authentic". (Bare Bones)
