TRB

29.08.2009

Thanks to a friend I found Tom Robinson Band. First I was doubtful whether I would like the music, I mean punk music has never been my passion. But it turns out that I really don’t know anything about punk. This is a band that sings “Glad to Be Gay”, how could it not be great? I’ve been listening to TRB on Spotify every night this week and still going strong <3. Some people think that politics shouldn’t be mixed up with popular music. I mean, think about this annoying Bono character, suffering from Jesus syndrome. It’s not pretty. But not everybody does it the Bono way. Politics and popular music can go together perfectly, like in the case of Tom Robinson Band, promoting gay rights and working against racism.
