In October 1969 hundreds of young people, clad in football helmets and wielding lead pipes, marched through an upscale Chicago shopping district, pummeling parked cars and smashing shop windows in their path.

This was the first demonstration of the Weather Underground's "Days of Rage." Outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, the organization waged a low-level war against the U.S. government through much of the 1970s, bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison, and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history.

The Weather Underground is a feature-length documentary that explores the rise and fall of this radical movement, as former members speak candidly about the idealistic passion that drove them to "bring the war home" and the trajectory that placed them on the FBI's most wanted list.

Yeah, I read an article about them a few years back, but couldn’t recall the name of the organization. American resistance is not so widely known here in Europe.
History repeats itself usually, let’s see…

Wish Bristol had an underground.

It'd beat getting stuck in the bloody queues on the M32 for shizzle...

Just reflecting for a moment on the name D. I'm not too sure big man. I can only speak from personal experiance when trying to write lyrics or song names or album names etc, I try to keep the interpretation open, so that it can mean more than one thing to differant people and the idea is universal and timeless. This name The weather underground, (whilst I'm sure the name and what it relates to has inspired you of late) could be a little one dimentional, alienating and stuck in a certain time and place.

Love respect and best wishes for the new one. See you from the front row at every scottish date (and maybe a few others) on your new tour.

Daiz.

I don't think so, I mean look at The Clash and their Sandinista! album. Music as education, the song Washington Bullets, maybe I'm biased, but both the songs and the title of Sandinista! are relevant today 25 years after it was released. But I'm sure D knows all this, don't you?

People aren't gonna think "Oooh Massive Attack have gone all political, I'm not going to buy it", well some will, but the hardcore fans? Unlikely I reckon.

Innit, otherwise the same is true for Blue Lines as a title.

The masses are far too ignorant/apathetic, in a sincere way...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Line_(Lebanon)

Quote:
The Blue Line is based on the deployment of the IDF prior to March 14, 1978. It is equivalent to the 'Purple Line' which is the cease-fire line of the Six Day War (1967), and the 'Green Line' (established in 1949) which is the cease-fire line of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.


Y'see, with the political connotations of releasing an album in early 1991 as Saddam enjoyed his foray into Kuwait, it was oh so topical...
