Episode 94 – Egyptian Rebel Tunes

Welcome back to another episode of The Rebel Beat! This episode is reminiscent of the old format of this show, 2 hours of live radio, done at our beloved CKUT radio in Montreal during a residency Aaron was doing for the Montreal Sessions.

Our special guest on the program is one of Egypt’s top studio guitarists and rebel musicians, Weka Soliman. You’ll definitely be hearing more about Weka’s story in the weeks to come on this show, but for now, enjoy this episode as he guides us through Egypt’s vast world of underground music.

And while we do think it’s important to remember ALL victims of war, we refuse to buy into trumped up national militaristic celebrations to mark this day. Nope. Fuck that noise. Instead, we bring you noise of the best kind – anti-nationalist and anti-militarist tunes bumping in your speaker. Put ’em on loud as you blockade your nearest army recruitment centre and burn your favourite flag.

Our special guest on the show this week is the awesome class-conscious rock n’ roll band The Last Internationale. Hailing from NYC, they have been collaborating lately with Firebrand Records, and told us about some of the campaigns and causes that inspire their music. Continue reading
