Friday night is Gil Scott Heron night

First November's Newsnight piece in two parts...

Now my favourite song of 1981/1982 thanks to its appearance on a free New Musical Express cassette that I must have played over and over again for months. This cassette disappeared years ago, anyone got a copy?

"51% of the registered voters had voted for nobody and so as far as they were concerned that indicated that nobody should be the President"

I think this is that NME version...

For more Gil Scott Heron take a look at this earlier post of mine.

And this was the poster above my bed, an odd choice for a right-of-centre teenager but I liked the imagery - and also I had a lefty girlfriend to impress!
