Buying Records is Just as Important as Voting (But Do That As Well)







The Late, Accurséd Baroness Thatcher  - may she never Rest in Peace - expressed her belief that Telstar by Joe Meek and The Tornados [which was Joe Meek] was perhaps the single greatest piece of popular music ever composed - I agree with her.*


  • It's uniquely British;
  • It's Innovative, Groundbreaking and Commerically Successful;
  • It's an Optimisitic, Confident and Bold People's Hymn to the Uplifting, Aspirational and Blakian White Light, White Heat of Wilsonian, Bennite Scientific Socialism



It's right up there with Blake's Jerusalem  and It's Grim Up North by The KLF

THE NORTH SHALL RISE AGAIN

If Joe Meek were with us today (and he is), he would remind us that buying records is just as important as voting, and is more meaniningful.


Because :
  • It involves Payment; 
  • Payment requires Sacrifice; and 
  • Sacrifice is Investment
This is why buying Blu-Rays is more important than renting movies or watching them on NetFlix or AmazonPrime via your subscription -

INVEST IN IDEAS
AND THEY WILL INVEST THEMSELVES IN YOU


* I also agree, in totality with the following :
"The President of the Commission, M. Delors, said at a press conference the other day that he wanted the European Parliament to be the democratic body of the Community, he wanted the Commission to be the Executive and he wanted the Council of Ministers to be the Senate. No. No. No."
