Jimmy Edgar
Jimmy Edgar

This week’s top new music was Jimmy Edgar‘s ‘Uniform (Citation).’ It’s from his new release on Warp Records. Please check it out if you’re a fan of the bleeping and the blooping.

The top old song was ‘White Punks On Hope’ by Crass. What can I say about Crass, these magnificent lions who roared while other “punk” bands were merely mewing? I had to play Crass because today, more than ever, we need lyrics like Crass used to write. Unafraid to be uncool, more concerned about content than style, pure fucking passion.
