Letters From…


Finally, after much waiting, and with many apologies for the delay, letters from Bologna have arrived! Or at least the first one has, the second and third will be with us within the weekend. From the home of Gramsci and the red city of Bologna come stories of resistance to fascism, student action, the power of community centres, Anglo-Italian indie rock, anti-mtv day, bullshit Willie and a brief guide to the political history of modern Italy. Many, many thanks to all those who helped, each and every one of he mighty mighty people of XM24, Gabriele, Ferruccio, my gracious hosts Magpie Wedding, and of course your good selves for listening.

Here is part 1. Part’s 2 and 3 will join us later in the week.

    Currently working on shows from New Zealand and from Bologna, I was hoping to have the NZ one done by the end of the month, but we’ll see how that goes. The Bologna one should be interesting as I’m going over there to record it.

    web info from italy was good, useful, things there seem abit depressing, must be said that the fascists mentioned who attacked people had their asses kicked, you can see the images on recent IMC pages.
    Not sure why you interiewed so many people with prejudice against anarchism, with marxists in america including Abi Rockefeller etc, you should have maybe challenged that. One of the people you interviewed says they dont like to be associated with left, its not suprising. Dictatorship of the right or left sucks, anarchism is about direct democracy.
    Iam hoping theres some interiews with Alicia Keys soon or , in gaurdian interview recently she called herself a anarchist, nothing wrong with abit of fame.
