Taking his inspiration from the social and political events of recent years, Calypso artist John Richards has released his latest EP, ‘Brexit’. The record makes use of his upbeat dancehall calypso style of music, while covering UK events such as the Brexit Referendum, and England’s cricket performance.
Without doubt, the Kinks’ 7th studio album is one of the greatest rock albums ever made, a near perfect example of Ray Davies’ incredible storytelling ability in what was an innovation in 1969: a concept album. It’s also poignant that a record based on thestory of emigrating from the UK around its potential to enter the Common Market should hit its 50th anniversary right now. With Brexit on the horizon, the themes of ‘Arthur’ ring alarmingly familiar.
