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

In anticipation and celebration of the bookfair, we bring you 2 hours of anarchist rebel music on this podcast of The Rebel Beat, featuring songs spanning different decades, continents, and genres. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading

We also have an interview with Ant Loc of Savage Fam, an amazing hip-hop crew from the west coast of the occupied U$$$A.

Oooohhh shit! It’s that time of year again! The trees are budding, birds are chirping, the people are rising, and Mayday is upon us. Every year, May 1st is celebrated in most parts of the world as International Workers’ Day. It’s a day to celebrate not only labour struggles, but all fights against oppression and ecocide. In many cities, there are Mayday protests and celebrations of all kinds, so wherever you are, find your nearest one, get out there in the streets, and STRIKE!

This week on the podcast, we welcome back our regular collaborator, co-conspirator, and friend, Frank of Submedia! As usual, Frank comes loaded with a wicked “fuck work” themed playlist of Mayday tunes, plus we hear an interview he did recently with Fannie and Brice from the Printemps 2015 committee in Montreal. This committee has been behind many of the amazing student strikes and actions in Quebec over the last few weeks, and they’re also gearing up for some pretty major Mayday stuff. Check ’em out!

Boom! Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat. As riots flare again against racist police in Baltimore, we continue to draw inspiration from peoples’ movements on this show, and provide a soundtrack to the smash-back.

Our very special guest on the show this week was Caspian from the amazing anarchist folk-punk band Blackbird Raum. Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, Blackbird Raum’s music exhibits hints of UK peace punk, traditional Irish rounds, and American bluegrass. Their lyrics are at times dark, focusing on ecological devastation and the gloom of capitalism, and at times uplifting, celebrating resistance to the death machine. Continue reading
