Heron: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

It’s that time again! In honour of the English exam I have just completed, using a Gil Scott Heron song as my related text, I’ve decided to put up that old subversive classic “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” as this weeks occasional music video.

It’s a masterpiece of 1970s spoken word proto-rap, that golden sunrise of hip hop, when politics and real issues dominated the content of songs rather than materialism, homophobia and sexism. It’s clever, witty, satirical and potent. Enjoy.
