1981.766* (HNY!)

Last year, in September, i was contacted by the calendar with some ‘news’. I had turned 30.

Responding in a typically British fashion, i decided to bolster my collection of 70’s + 80’s funk-disco records and make a 30 track mix (it has been pointed out to me that technically i am in my 31st year. thanks, douche bag)

Anyway, slightly belatedly, Happy New Year!

* 1981.766 is what you get if you’re on a long and boring train ride, and decide to look up the year of each song add them together and divide by 30, resulting in the mean. occurred to me afterwards that the median might have been more appropriate, but i decided i was sad enough already.

Angela Davis was my Mum’s hero back in the day. She had the foot-high ‘fro to match.

And I quote: “Using 16 mm footage that was shot by Swedish filmmakers following some of the key members of the Black Power movement during the ’60s and ’70s, this documentary brings that tumultuous period for American race relations to vivid life and incorporates new interviews with leading African-American activists and artists.
Why It’s Worth Seeking Out:┬áBecause it’s a subject that’s always timely and some of the footage these filmmakers shot is truly extraordinary.”

September 9th. Be there.
