Dirty Pretty Things – 9 Lives (Love Music Hate Racism album)

Posted by veerand &emdash; oktoober 27, 2007

LMHR pole ikka veel NMEga ilmunud esimest plaati allalaadimiseks lubanud. No mis teha, tuleb oodata, kuni nad oma ajakirja müüdud saavad. Või mine tea, kaua veel. Igatahes DPT fännid muutusid kannatamatuks. Aga inetu oleks tasuta ja hea eesmärgi nimel tehtavat asja sedasi näotult varastada, sellepärast käib igal pool truult jutt kaasas miks ja milleks. Seda teen minagi.

Igatahes, lugu on hea. Selline “piraadiballaad” nagu Carl Baratilt ootakski.

Our music is living testimony to the fact that cultures can and do mix. It unites us and gives us strength, and offers a vibrant celebration of our multicultural and multiracial society. Racism seeks only to divide and weaken us. Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) was set up in 2002 in response to rising levels of racism and electoral successes for the Nazi British National Party (BNP).

We use the energy of our music scene to celebrate diversity and involve people in anti-racist and anti-fascist activity — as well as to urge people to vote against fascist candidates in elections. LMHR has helped to mobilise against further BNP election victories, in the tradition of the Rock Against Racism (RAR) movement of the late 1970s.

There have been now been over 400 LMHR events, from large outdoor festivals to local gigs and club nights. Top artists who’ve performed at LMHR events include Ms Dynamite, Hard -Fi, Babyshambles, Akala, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Estelle, The View, Lethal Bizzle, Roll Deep and Basement Jaxx. Just as important are the up-and-coming bands, DJs, MCs and their fans who have performed at or organised their own local LMHR nights.

We want to create a national movement against racism and fascism through music, so it’s vital everyone gets involved however they can.
