To celebrate this resistance, we’ve got 2 hours of music here that loudly proclaims we’re still not lovin’ police. Never have, never will. Continue reading

Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! This week on the show, we start off with some ideal tracks that we’d love to have blaring over a loudspeaker during a riot, and then we went into a musical obituary for Vi Subversa.

Welcome back for another weekly edition of The Rebel Beat! This week it’s our favourite time of the month, that time when Frank from Sumedia.tv comes in to studio to share what’s been going down on his TV show, and play some wicked riotous tunes.

This week, we have an interview with Austin, TX-based anarchist organizer and author Scott Crow, talking about the shit-show that is the US election circus. We also talked about recent global anti-fascist and feminist actions against Pegida and Roosh V (a so-called “Pick-Up Artists” who supports the legalization of rape). And, because the WHOLE WORLD was talking about it, we threw in a bit of Super Bowl 50 commentary. But don’t worry, just a bit 😉

And of course, plenty of revolutionary music. See the amazing playlist below! Continue reading

Happy new year! Welcome to the first podcast of The Rebel Beat for 2016! It’s gonna be a great year for this show, filled with tons of interviews, special guests, and top-notch revolutionary music.

We wanted to start the year off with a bang by going back to a record label that was extremely influential for prairie punks and radicals of all stripes in so-called “Canada”, and further afield. G7 Welcoming Committee records was started back in 1997 in Winnipeg by members of Propagandhi, The Weakerthans, and other activist/musicians from central Canada. Up until 2010, it was putting out some of the best radical music, books, and spoken word CDs around. In fact, plenty of the music that we’ve featured on The Rebel Beat is from releases that G7 put out. Continue reading
