Say No To Nukes on Geek (Ema)Nation Podcast!

European TheaterBack in the 1980s nuclear war and nuclear energy were major topics of discussion and activism.  Even yours truly, The Rock’N’Roll Nurse, got arrested for protesting at a nuclear weapons plant!  These issues may seem like long past images in the rear view mirror, but they haven’t really disappeared.  In an effort to re-energize your thinking about nukes, Geek (Ema)Nation presents this compilation from 1982 in its entirety, featuring choice cuts by The CLASH, The JAM, The UNDERTONES, The AU PAIRS and other exciting bands of the time.  No proliferation here, fellow music geeks!

The Prince’s Trust Collection on Geek (Ema)Nation Podcast!

Prince's TrustThis 2-LP Compilation released in 1985 (as seen on TV! it says in the lower right corner) says it contains prime tracks by “the cream of British rock” and the money gathered from sales was supposed to go to a trust devoted to “exploring ways in which young people who felt alienated in our modern society might be encouraged to help themselves.”  Lofty goals indeed.  Some decent music too, although tracks by the likes of BILL WYMAN, JIMMY PAGE and ROBERT PLANT seem pretty bloated and gratuitous compared to the new wave sounds of KATE BUSH, MADNESS, and even (gasp!) DURAN DURAN.  Creamy Brit-Rock for you, fellow music geeks!
