Mette Hermansen: Giv mig hiphoppen tilbage!
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 295, feb 10 – side 15
Note: 61’s hiphop-klub har udgivet sin første cd med kunstnere, der siden 2008 har stået på scenen til Rap’n’Skralde-arrangementerne i Ungdomshuset. Rhythm and Politics R.A.P. – The Revolution er titlen. Og den lever op til sit navn. Udgivelsen indeholder både systemkritik, opråb og revolutionære idéer. Men også et ønske om at vise, at hiphop er mere og andet end bare bling bling og kællinger.

Simon Behrmann: From revolution to irrelevance: how classical music lost its audience
International Socialism Journal nr. 121, jan 09 – side 121
Note: For the best part of 50 years it has been common to ask whether “classical” music is dead/dying. More than classical theatre, literature or art, classical music seems more and more to be the preserve of a tiny elite. Are we in danger of losing a living tradition of music that stretches back several hundred years?
Simon Basketter: Paul Robeson Collection: Flawed attempts to bring black pride to the screen
Socialist Worker nr. 2089, feb 08 – side 11

Note: Jazz musician Joe Zawinul recalled his experiences palying in Cannonball Adderley's band during the 1960s: “I often had to sit in the bottom of the car when driving through certain parts of the South… those things never fazed me, I wanted to play with the best and I could play on that level with the best”.

Brian Richardson: Comment: James Brown – Doing it to Death
Socialist Review nr. 313, jan 07 – side 31
Note: In life James Brown was a consummate entertainer whose live performances were the stuff of legend. It seems almost typical of the old showman that he finally bowed out on 25 December 2006.

Note: International Socialism 61 opened a debate on jazz. Here Charlie Hore brings the discussion to a close with a reply to his critics, whose views appeared in International Socialism 64.

Dave McNally: EP Thompson: class struggle and historical materialism
International Socialism Journal nr. 61, dec 93 – side 75
Note: E P Thompson was a powerful advocate of Marxism's central role in explaining historical change. He was also an unrepentant enemy of academic phrase-mongering and a lifelong political activist.

Henrik Friis Madsen: Hip-hop musikken – oprør eller medieflop?
International Socialisme nr. 5, jun 93 – side 30
Note: Hip-hop-musikken og rapmusikken, som er en del af denne, er skyllet som en bølge ud over verden i de sidste 10 år, og har fortrinsvis indtaget storbyerne. Genren er blevet kaldt den vigtigste musiske og ungdomskulturelle strømning siden rock'n'roll'en. Men hvad mange ikke ved er, at hip-hop-musikken stikker langt dybere end blot ekstra-large tøj, slang, smarte rytmer, rappen til ghettoblasteren og dans på gadehjørner.
