Since Labour won, this victory will *not* be attributed to Corbyn or Labour party policy / campaigning. If Labour had lost, we’d have no fucking end of ‘Corbyn must go!’ bullshit from the liberal and Tory press, from every anti-socialist source possible. They’d be crowing whereas now they’re silent.
If, like me, your youth was basically formed by the label Mute, you’ll love this. Eschewing the wordy for a visual ramble, this is the Mute story in bold, stark images.
I’ve read many, many books about Depeche Mode, Mute Records and their hugely influential relationship with electronic music. Whether it’s avant-garde bleeping or the poppiest of pop songs, Mute has always unapologetically owned both. Feast your eyes:
Sooooo many seminal releases (hehehh) here and it’s magical to see how they came together to the version I have sitting somewhere in a dusty cupboard.
I can highly recommmend the Mute book, it’s a shade under thirty quid which is actually great value for such a high quality art book.
I am NOT SORRY to keep posting about this… This person was born a woman, she identifies as a woman, she IS A WOMAN FFS! If you’re a bloke and the IAAF measured your testosterone and said, ‘Good news, it’s low enough for you to compete as a woman!’ – how would you feel? Would it make sense to you or would you defend yourself and your identity? This is what happens when you have religious / anti-science interpretations of gender and sex, you end up with ridiculous hatefests like the IAAF are promoting. Well done, IAAF for making every single athlete’s life more difficult.
