There are many singer songwriters that have been bashing out political songs and music for years and because theydon’t live in my area of Greater London don’t come to my notice and get onto this blog. Its about time two of them did! One of these is Robb Johnson who also established ‘Irregular Records’ in Brighton in 1985.

 Irregular Records also published the music of Alun Parry a Liverpool based musician who organised the unique Liverpool Festival of Working Class (Life and) Music in from 2008 to 2011. Alun is about to bring out a new album after four years and you can order it here; as well as download a free album as a taster.   The album launch is on 21st September.

Alun Parry was also one of the founder members of AFC Liverpool.  Which is part of an English movement to establish fan owned football clubs. These include AFC Wimbledon, now in the professional league, and F.C. United of Manchester
