Mogadishu Festival (July 5th) w/ Kula Shaker, The The, Joanna Newsom and more …

So, what’s my plans for this week ???
Watch as much of the World Cup as possible … get all the coverage of Glastonbury on the TV and athe radio … record a radio session for the BBC with Reggii … and last night I watched that John Lennon film with Christopher Ecclestone doing his Thomas The Tank Engine impression … not bad though …

And just think … most of this … in fact almost all of this is through the magic boxes we have in our homes that connect us to the world, an the majority is provided by something we take for granted called the BBC, music, information and entertainment provided for us by the governing body of this country …

Well, imagine that we didn’t have this, imagine that all this, including Gorillaz playing on the Pyramid Stage was considered un-islamic and we weren’t allowed to listen … that’s how it is in Somalia, there’s no music on the radio and you’re just not allowed to get your groove on !!!  Never !!!

This is where the Mogadishu Festival comes in … you can read all about it on the website … but the top and bottom of it is a coming together of music and musicians who believe that this here music ban is a crying shame and an outrage …
