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 | 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 | 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’”

Sound of our Revolution | June 2021: Pride is a Protest

Contributed by Jonny Collins It’s June, you know what that means! It’s the time of the year when cis white gays and straight women get to listen to bland 90s pop and not think about the continued systemic oppression of LGBTQIA+ people in their very own neighbourhood! Pride Month is a very important time ofContinue reading “Sound of our Revolution | June 2021: Pride is a Protest”

Sound of our revolution | May 2021: Trans liberation

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to do a Trans liberation playlist. While it’s been relevant for many reasons over the past year, there was always something else going on that seemed like a more fitting theme at the time. Truth is, I’m so used to transphobia and the systematic stripping of ourContinue reading “Sound of our revolution | May 2021: Trans liberation”

Sound of Our Revolution | April 2021: Blizzard faves

Contributed by Jonny Collins Would you believe it, Blizzard Comedy is 2 years old? Isn’t it incredible how time moves forwards? At this point we will have been running online longer than we were prior to the pandemic, that’s depressing. But I think it’s fair to say that in that time we have gone fromContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | April 2021: Blizzard faves”

Sound of Our Revolution | March 2021: We Will Never Be Royal

Wow, what a month March is shaping out to be. I picked the theme of this month’s playlist before a huge event that has totally put everything else into perspective – so rest assured we will be addressing the events of the Sarah Everard Vigil on the 13th March in the show, and it willContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | March 2021: We Will Never Be Royal”

Sound of Our Revolution | February 2021: Anti-Nationalism

I’ve never really felt national pride. Even when I was younger and more naïve to the truly awful things in Britain’s history or the corruption of the present. I was never particularly into sport, I went to quite diverse schools and have always had friends from a variety of places. Any community spirit and feelingsContinue reading “Sound of Our Revolution | February 2021: Anti-Nationalism”
