Josh MacPhee does beautiful art. He is a member of the Justseeds collective, and if you love their work, you might have some of his prints up on your wall. In recent years, Josh has turned his focus from visual art and graphic design to revolutionary music, and he is the author of the forthcoming book “An Encyclopedia of Political Record Labels” from Common Notions Press. The book is a glorious work of deep research and stunning design. He joins us on the Rebel Beat to dive deep into his book, and the propaganda potential of record labels.
The book is out in October 2019, and you can pre-order your copy here!

In our Turn It Up segment, we give a nod to Egyptian rebel musician Ramy Essam, who is fighting to get many of his band-mates and artistic collaborators out of jail. Find out all about the campaign around his song “Balaha” here.
