I’ve just recorded and uploaded my latest song, ‘The Lady’s Not Returning’, to my SoundCloud (it’s free to hear, download and share). The song is on Margaret Thatcher, the most divisive (and destructive) Prime Minister Britain has arguably ever seen, and comes of course around the time of her £10m publically-funded funeral. If you oppose what Thatcher stood for, have a listen and feel free to pass it around. There’s also a little YouTube video of it here.
Thatcher is gone, but her ideology is still with us – particularly with the current government’s vicious austerity programme which is ruining the lives of millions of people and failing to sort our economy. The Iron Lady’s ideas aren’t yet Rusting in Pieces…
Like all my stuff the song is on a Creative Commons license so you can basically do what you want with it. Hope you like.
I’ve just launched a new Facebook page for my music stuff – feel free to like it to keep up to date: www.facebook.com/josiahmortimeracoustic
You might also want to listen to two other new songs of mine – 99 Reasons (a tribute to the People’s Assembly Against Austerity this June), and A Movement and a Reason, dedicated to the student protests of 2010 against tuition fees and a call for a new student movement –
On a final note, I recently did an interview on my music with York Vision, a student newspaper at the University of York. Have a read for more info on my song-writing and what I’m up to musically. Exciting times! www.yorkvision.co.uk/scene/interview-with-josiah-mortimer/
