Here's an observation.
Sex Pistols were a manufactured boy band.
Their contemporaries The Crass came from a place where politics was the source of inspiration. Thatcherism was a relatively easy target, but they did
it very well, and so did Gang Of Four.
When the flavor of contemporary politics is bad for the human condition, more people will tend to bring voice to it in song. But the protest movements
of the 60s have largely given way to the tokenisms expressed by hip hop artists and the occasional poltical rally to help an ageing artist to
re-emerge. Or have they?
