About the show

Playing tracks by

The revolution will not be televised, it will be streamed on my Mixcloud channel:
For Crate No. 4 I decided to take the 1st of May, which is commonly known as "Labour Day" in Europe, as an opportunity to go on a hunt for rare socialist records from Germany. I collected some Marxist Progressive Rock, as well as Leninist Funk, Politpunk, Labour-Folk and even Christian protest songs.
The music sounds raw, dirty and in places experimental, while the lyrics are probably some of the most hilarious ever recorded in Germany without missing to embrace serious topics like unemployment, exploitation of labours and violation of police power. Clench your fist, raise it up and listen to this revolutionary mix!
