Rolling Stone reports: The Olympics organizers wanted the drummer to take part in the Symphony of Rock, a celebration of British pop culture that will be part of the Games’ closing ceremony on August 12th

now that would be something worth seeing ……
It may close early… http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/news/content/view/full/117813
Great idea! Ollie Reed on vocals, John Entwistle on bass, Ivor Cutler on keyboards, Lonnie Donegan on rhythm guitar, Mick Ronson on lead…the ultimate revival!
I met old Ivor a little while before he died, he really was a lovely man, a one of a kind non-conformist…I still treasure the home-made agitprop stickers against ‘amplification’ he gave me….I recently discovered the ‘Red Poets Society’ from Wrecsam, Wales- One of their members, (some of whom, I think, are anarchos), Jazz, was briefly on C4 news with his angry poem ‘Giro City’. It sounded great- but there’s little about them on the web…
Elvis is scheduled to make a surprise appearance on the ‘last day’ – backed by Glen Miller and his orchestra.
Not the kind of ‘moon’ that’s really needed ;-)
Typical Corporation sponsored games- Slave Labour Gestapoists Atos being a sponsor- Little wonder Cram doesn’t want to speak to the Disbled people any longer-another case of a celebrity patron being only interested in furthering their own profile as opposed to championing the interest of the members they supposedly represent.
Resurrecting the dead is just another empty promise from the Olympic promoters. So far we’ve had “tens of thousands of jobs”, “revival of one of the most depressed areas of London” , ” fair ticket distribution”, etc etc. Expect loads of empty seats, few sustainable jobs, and no regional revival,internet generated terrorist threats, event cancellations ( due to the former), at least one innocent killed by the met, athletes on drugs, suss searches reinvigorated, repeats of the pillage of 2011, Ian Bone gets an invite to chair ” have i got news for you”. The launch of the Anarchist Almanac?
Jobs? In Indonesia, yes-
’65-hour working week and pay as little as 34 pence per hour in factories subcontracted to produce kit for the Games’
