This week we're joined by special guest Caffy St Luce, the fairy godmother of rock, as we explore protest songs through the ages. Kerrie takes us back to the 1930s and what is believed to be one of the first protest songs, Strange Fruit sung by Billie Holiday. We also moonwalk back in time to life in 1979 from politics to the launch of the Sony Walkman before landing at the feet of legends The Slits and their song 'Typical Girl'. Expect random facts and stories of Howard Marks, Manic Street Preachers, Mason and more on that inflatable kayak.Our music hot picks this week are from Dream Nails and Rosehip Teahouse.If you want to get in touch with us please email: rockpoprambles@gmail.com or on social media via twitter @bugeyeband or Facebook @bugeyemusicRESEARCHRosehip TeahouseBandcamp: https://rosehipteahouse.bandcamp.comFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/rosehipteahouse/https://twitter.com/rosehipteahouseDream NailsBandcamp: https://dreamnails.bandcamp.com/album/dream-nailsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/yourdreamnails/Twitter: https://twitter.com/yourdreamnailsSTRANGE FRUIThttps://books.google.co.uk/books?id=mxnaPQAACAAJ&dq=33+revolutions+per+minute&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi_m4iS3e_qAhWCoVwKHY3ZAk0Q6AEwAXoECAEQAghttps://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Strange_Fruit.html?id=3EwkAAAACAAJ&redir_esc=yTHE SLITS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Slitshttps://www.loudandquiet.com/interview/the-slits/https://pitchfork.com/artists/4113-the-slits/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCcZm75wzHchttps://genius.com/The-slits-typical-girls-lyricshttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Clothes-Clothes-Music-Music-Boys/dp/0571328288/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Viv+Albertine&qid=1595943459&sr=8-1
