History of the World (Part 1)

In chronological order we start with 1) Stump parting the Red Sea for Moses as played by Charlton Heston 2) Laibach's odd but lovable version of Jesus Christ Superstar 3) Skipping a couple of millennia (oops), we join Clock DVA & the WWII French Resistance 4) Ultravox & a love lost in Hiroshima 5) The Stranglers reflect on the Vietnam War 6) The Smith's, at their most moving, on the impact of the Moors murders 7) Gary Clail & the Tack>head Sound System give Mrs. Thatcher some opposition 8) Mark Stewart takes issue with the 1st Gulf War as only he can 9) Thom Yorke examines the scapegoating, or worse, of David Kelly over evidence supporting the invasion of Iraq 10) Mountain Goats tie it all up for us with love.

Thanks Shoey - hadn't heard Stump for a while - Buffalo was an interesting track.

Also like the Harrowdown Hill track.

Loved Digital Justice. Where can I find this track?

Mnemonic: The short answer is right-click on the title & download. The album is Control Data on Mute that may be tricky to track down. Glad you liked it.

Thanks Shoey. I haven't forgotten that I still owe you a BOC track. Life keeps getting in the way of my undertaking Boxtr but I will get there.
