CAMBRIDGE music promoters R*E*P*E*A*T are coming to St Neots Football Club tonight (Wednesday) to tackle the town's BNP candidate in the upcoming local elections. Attila the Stockbroker, Uprizing Sounds, Opaque, Little Chuck Little and Heather McVey will be playing under the banner of Love Music Hate Racism and urge the people of St Neots to make it to the polling booths on May 3 to ensure a high turnout and a mainstream winner in the elections.
I'll admit I have strongly mixed feelings about the brand of politics fostered by R*E*P*E*A*T - I would imagine that most of their angry punk acts would advocate that going anywhere near a polling station would be tantamount to caving into "the system" and the conspiring political consensus. Perhaps it takes something as politically ugly as the BNP to count our blessings.
Meanwhile, I doubt that the BNP are teetering on the brink of electoral success, but it's a good opportunity to appreciate the merits of all the main parties - despite their many and varied flaws. It's a well intentioned cause with some fine musical acts - so get there if you can. Visit: www.repeatfanzine.co.uk
