Event description

Description

We were trying to change the world in our tiny way by stopping the rise of fascism amongst youth with the power of music. Red Saunders, founder of Rock Against Racism

Join writer and musician Daniel Rachel to celebrate the paperback release of Walls Come Tumbling Down. His book charts the extraordinary and pivotal period between 1976 and 1992 following Eric Clapton’s now notorious and inflammatory speech in support of Enoch Powell and ‘black’ repatriation. Daniel and guest June Miles-Kingston will discuss how three key movements of that era: Rock Against Racism, 2 Tone, and Red Wedge were shaped by the music of a generation.

Daniel Rachel is the author of Isle of Noises: Conversations with Great British Songwriters – a Guardian and NME Book of the Year and a regular guest contributor on BBC Radio 5. Since the late Seventies, June Miles-Kingston has played drums and sung with a multitude of influential bands (including The Communards, Fun Boy Three and Everything But The Girl). Now an award-winning filmmaker, music continues as the central theme in her work.
