London Bombings

Friday, 08 July 2005 14:40

We hope you and your loved ones are okay after yesterday's events in London. Here are some rock'n'roll words from Lach, NYC antifolk singer, which cheered us:

"I am currently on a travel week in Estonia and woke up this morning to the horrendous news of the London bombing. On my last music tour through the UK in May I stayed with friends and fans instead of hotels. It made the tour so much more immediate, fun and real. I was charmed to find such similarity in how most of the people I met lived, more specifically, the decor of their homes. They were filled with posters, books, CDs and magazines all reflective of the underground, boho, rock and roll life. And everyone in these rooms was kind, giving, poetic, searching and sincere.

It's as if there is this global country called "Rocknrollia" or something with no borders and no government but an international populace of artists, outcasts, rebels, dreamers. And floating above it, like a polluted crust, is this mad world of politicians, fundamentalists, businessmen, liars and thieves who are violently screwing everything up. Well, they struck again today and they will strike again tomorrow but they will all ultimately lose out to the Jedi nature of the true Rockanrollians for nothing can withstand the beat, the rhythm and the melody of non-violent liberation. And I think you know what I mean . . ."

Step lightly, Stay free

Love

Lach
