I decided to post a track for your political action daily on this blog. This will be music that has strong personal, political and artistic attitude to let inspire you. This will be music that reminds you, in every single one of them, that steadiness is the key to longterm change, that you are not alone, that drawbacks are normal, that even carrying a message and exchanging by word and mouth has the power to change.
As Emma Goldman put it:
“If I can’t dance I don’t want to be in your revolution.”
The track for April 27th is “We are from the Internet” from Atari Teenage Riot.
Atari Teenage Riot is a German digital hardcore group formed in Berlin in 1992. The name was taken from a Portuguese song entitled “Teenage Riot”, with the word ‘Atari’ added as an Atari ST computer was used to create compositions. Highly political, they fused anarchist, anti-fascist and anti-Nazi views with punk vocals and the newly emerging techno sound called digital hardcore, which is a term band member Alec Empire used as the name of his record label.
