Johnny G Watson

Ben Watson puts it so well:  “For the bourgeois record industry, Johnny Guitar Watson’s protest songs are a gimmick and a frivolity, an underclass whistle in the dark, but behind motivational funk and curse-words stands the livid tongue of the exploited masses, behind these protests at unemployment and computerisation stand the needs of labour versus capital, behind this precise musicality, in-studio 3D construction and cutting wit lurks the Black Revolution, the precursor to any social progress in the United States.”

Hey you folks! Listen HERE !

Ends with a tune for Lol Coxhill R.I.P.
