Sound of Our Revolution | March 2022: Blizzard’s 3rd birthday

Contributed by Jonny Collins Nearly 3 years old, where has the time gone! Oh right, into the apocalypse, yeah that thing. It feels so weird that we will be shortly celebrating our 3rd birthday in a live show given that we weren’t even able to celebrate our 1st birthday in person, and our 2nd birthdayContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | March 2022: Blizzard’s 3rd birthday”

Sound of Our Revolution | February 2022: Anti-War

Well, this is certainly a timeline we’re living in. It’s not like the situation between Russia and the rest of Europe has ever been particularly stable – but starting 2022 with explicit threats and preparations to invade Ukraine is not exactly great news for anyone. While it is tempting to just say “War, huh, whatContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | February 2022: Anti-War”

Sounds of Our Revolution | January 2022: Anti-Capitalism

Contributed by Jonny Collins My new year’s resolution was to stop being forced to live under the oppressive and inequitable system of Capitalism. Sad to say I have failed on this front almost immediately. I could write essays on the many shortcomings of the economic system which has become so thoroughly normalized that even thinkingContinue reading “Sounds of Our Revolution | January 2022: Anti-Capitalism”

Sound of our Revolution | December 2021: Best of 2021

Contributed by Jonny Collins Well, here we are. The end of quite possibly one of the toughest years of my life, and judging by the general vibe on social media, the sentiment is largely shared. 2020 was an unprecedented disaster with glimmers of hope at the end of the tunnel. 2021 took that hope, shatContinue reading “Sound of our Revolution | December 2021: Best of 2021”

Sound of Our Revolution | November 2021: Environmentalist Anthems

Contributed by Jonny Collins Another Month, another arbitrary playlist to listen to before the next Blizzard Comedy stream on the 29th November. This month our theme is Climate Change & Environmentalism. After the disaster of the Cop 26 and certain world leaders (specifically our own) demonstrating how little they care at best about the inevitableContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | November 2021: Environmentalist Anthems”

Sound of Our Revolution | October 2021: AFAB, Women and Femme Solidarity

I’ve wanted to do a playlist on the theme of Women’s rights and solidarity for a while, and honestly it’s a travesty that I’m only now just getting it. But while we’re seeing at best naïve useless advice and at worst victim blaming bootlicking from the police and their sympathizers in the aftermath of theContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | October 2021: AFAB, Women and Femme Solidarity”

Sound of Our Revolution | September 2021: Class Solidarity

Intersectionality is a word that gets tossed around a lot. It’s a concept crucial to leftist ideas, and the lack of it is I think the downfall of all the major left leaning political figures in the world. Simply put, it is the interconnected nature of social categories; race, gender, sexuality, class, etc. More specificallyContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | September 2021: Class Solidarity”

Sound of Our Revolution | August 2021: Bollocks to Brexit

I can’t believe I’ve not done one of these on Brexit yet. Sure, I’ve mentioned it in other playlists before, and it’s arguably way too late to be addressing this as we are far too deep into the bullshit to reasonably prevent any of the damage. Heck, we’re seeing more damage every day, and whilstContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | August 2021: Bollocks to Brexit”

Sound of Our Revolution | July 2021: Intent to Cause a ‘Serious Annoyance’

Another month, another wealth of Tory bullshit to inspire this month’s musical rage playlist. This was a tricky one, not for lack of inspiration, more to the lack of trying to narrow down one particular theme rather than just Evil politicians being evil. Do I try to capture the feeling of dread many of theContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | July 2021: Intent to Cause a ‘Serious Annoyance’”
