Love Music Hate Racism event

Recommended Posts

The Socialist Worker Student Society at Aberdeen University are organising an Love Music Hate Racism event, to celebrate the city's multicultural community. It will be at The Tunnels on December 10th. We are in the process of confirming acts, but we still require some more. Are there any bands or DJs interested in performing? We are hoping to have a diverse, global array of sounds and styles, but will consider any music that is conducive to a party.

Hey, this should be a great night, and a good cause.

I can't contribute in any way unfortunately, but giving it a bump up! :up:

That could work, do you have any music online?

Unfortunately nothing of remote quality whatsoever. Just finished writing our first set, a non stop 40 mins of quality grooves. Line up is bass, drums, alto and tenor sax, Hammond and vocals. Quality set of musicians if i don't say so myself. Anyway, if you are interested and can be bothered coming down, we're practicing in Musical Vision tomorrow (Thursday) 8.30 to 10.30. Best I can do at the moment.

Let me know if you are coming down.

Hi,

We would be up for playing another gig at the tunnels, last one we did was for the CLAN charity event. We play blues rock in the style of Dr feelgood, and can either play a set of our own stuff or covers (or both), website here...MySpace.com - Midlife Crises - Aberdeen, UK - Rock / Blues / Post punk - www.myspace.com/midlifecrisez

definitely party music :up:

Cheers

Dave

I would love to be involved in this in some way. However, unfortunately, one band can't do a mid-week gig cos the vocalist lives on Skye, my other band isn't ready for gigging, and a noise/organ duet is probably not what you're after.

Good luck regardless, the title of the cause pretty much somes up my entire mind set towards life.

It's not what we're after this time, but this is only going to be the first in a series of gigs. We'll probably theme them, so there'll be room for experimential noise yet.

You probably know more about putting on gigs from your time in bands than we do, so if you want to help out, then that'd be very welcome. Otherwise, just come to the event and enjoy the night.

Apologies to all those who have contacted me about this that I've yet to get back to. We have 2 acts and 2 DJs confirmed, and are deciding on the final act. I'll let everyone know who offered their services whether or not they're required, but if anyone else has any suggestions, they'll still be considered.

There's a 'socialist worker student society'? :laughing:

How can anyone take LMHR seriously after they were so proud of getting a conerstone of society like Pete Doherty to take up their cause?

Aye, it recently started up again.

Wish the SWP would leave music alone, though...

Not :up:

Thanks to all the acts who offered their services for this event. We have now combined our event with one organised by Aberdeen Student Radio, so we have several acts involved, including CCJ, Super Six Funk Machine, Cast of the Capital and DJ Kojo. Both Tunnels 1 and 2 will be used. The night will be opened by Weyman Bennett of Unite Against Fascism at 8.00. Tickets are 3, and are available from One Up, or on the door.

P.S. It is tomorrow night!

Weymen Bennett, also known as the leader of the universally discredited Anti-Nazi League, mm? The organisation which had participated in so many anti-democratic acts that virtually anyone with an ounce of common sense gave them a very wide berth? Admittedly, UAF was a fantastic way for them to reinvent themselves - but still the same nonsense goes on.

It should be noted that anyone attending this event will be putting money towards an organisation with people who have participated in and advocate violence to achieve their political aims.

(oh, and of course, you're funding them against the struggle of evil capitalists)

edit :

'Roots of Israels violence' SWP (Britain)

Let's not forget how the SWP can be incredibly anti-Israel too. Are they any better than the BNP in that respect? Are they fuck.

So what? To paraphrase Lenin, anyone expecting a bloodless revolution will never live to see it.

Too fucking right the SWP is anti-Israel, and rightly so. Israel has committed every atrocity in the book. Two words, Sabra and Shatilla, should get you started on this one.

Comparing us to the BNP is pretty desperate, even Tory Dave would struggle with that one...

It's pretty easy, actually. They're both symptoms of the same disease. They're both run by, and sponsored by extremists who rely on the gullible for support. They both display a level of contempt for the facts about the Holocaust on a par with David Irving. They both want to greatly reduce the average person's involvement in the democratic process, oh, and they're both socialist parties.

I'm really surprised that the student radio station are getting themselves involved with people like this. Most people understand that the SWP has a sinister side. I'm quite sure that, as part of the station's license, they're not supposed to affiliate themselves with a particular political group.

:laughing:

Straight outta the Daily Mail...

Why is it socialists always use the Daily Mail ploy whenever they're getting their arse kicked in a debate? I've never read the Daily Mail in my life.

Because any time you make a post relating to politics it's invariably hateful, intolerant bile which makes you sound like a right nasty piece of work. And I don't think you are that, for what it's worth. My old man reads the Daily Mail religiously and I scan it for a quick laugh whenever I visit so I know what it's about and you'll find a lot of kindred spirits in that rag.

It's not even a debate, I gave up trying to reason with ultra-right wingers a long time ago. There's no point to it at all, I know what I believe and my mind's made up. So's yours, so it's hardly worth the bother.

You were the one that threw down the challenge for me to find similarities between the BNP and SWP. I did so, with great ease, and you know that if you pushed me on this point I'd come up a long list of unsavoury types associated with the SWP and examples of their less than tolerant behaviour towards certain groups within society. But you didn't, so I won't. We'll just chalk this one up as another in a long line of victories for Tory Dave, shall we?

Aye, you said the SWP and the BNP were both socialist parties, which was so far wide of the mark that it defied belief. Unless you're thinking that "socialist" and "national socialist" is the same thing, which it isn't.

I'll keep it as simple as I can, the SWP are a revolutionary Marxist party and the BNP are Nazi pondlife. I tried my damnedest to find some common ground, but I couldn't. I'll have to rely on your superior knowledge on this one, it seems.

I'd be very interested to hear about any "unsavoury types" within the SWP who practice intolerance, you being such an expert on the organisation and all that. From your personal experience, of course. I've been a party member on and off for the past decade, and I've always found them to be a bit too placid if anything. I should know, whereas you're just on the outside looking in.

Chalk it up however you want to, I can't be fucked with petty point-scoring.

I don't believe that this was in the politics discussion forum by the way. It's a post looking for bands to play a gig and is in the networking forum. Make a fresh one to discuss the politics or whatever.

This gig is tonight and will be fun.

It's refreshing to actually see honesty in this respect - so many people will try and skirt round these issues - but to openly admit it is the decent thing to do :)

But the BNP comparison I made was purely in terms of being anti-Israel - I'm sure if you took a token SWP member and asked them their opinion of Israel, then asked your average BNP member - you'd probably get pretty similar answers, no?
