They say the working class is dead, we’re all consumers now
They say that we have moved ahead – we’re all just people now
There’s people doing ‘frightfully well’ there’s others on the shelf
But never mind the second kind this is the age of self […]
“The age of self” aka “Castles built on sand”. Recorded Summer ’85, rel. 1985-11 on the “Old Rottenhat” lp + 1985-09 as 7″ A-side b/w “Raise your banners high” by the Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band & GCHQ Trade Unions with 7:84 Theatre Co. – all proceeds from the sale went to the TUC Miners’ Hardship Fund (cat. no. TUC 784).
And re: that age of self do get to see Adam Curtis’ “The century of the self”! For a bunch of links, see http://snaporaz.posterous.com/century-of-the-self-age-of-self
