Musicians have often wanted to change the world. From underground innovators to pop icons many have believed in the political power of music. Rulers recognise it too. Music has been used to challenge the political and social order – and to prop up the status quo.

Sound System is the story of one musician’s journey to discover what makes music so powerful. Dave Randall uses his insider’s knowledge of the industry to shed light on the secrets of celebrity, commodification and culture. It is a book of raves, riots and revolution and poses the question: how can we make music serve the interests of the many, rather than the few?

Dave Randall is a musician and activist. He has toured the world playing guitar with Faithless, Sinead O’Connor, Emiliana Torrini and many others. In this illustrated talk, he’ll take us on a thrilling trip into the world of music and politics – one that will take us through history and across cultures. We’ll then have a Q&A / discussion and Dave will stick around to chat some more. 

“A deeply intelligent look at music and society. Thought provoking, readable and clever” Mark Radcliffe (BBC 2 / 6Music)

Sound System: The Political Power of Music is a book of raves, riots and revolution. It looks at examples from Beethoven to Beyoncé and poses the question: how can we make music serve the interests of the many, rather than the few?

Ghost Villages and Postal Mischief: An evening with Dr. Bramwell at Bom-Banes


1st March 2018
8:00 pm

Bom Banes St George's St
Brighton


BBC Radio 4 presenter and author, Dr Bramwell (that’s me) delivers two illustrated talks in his own inimitable style. The evening will begin by exploring the history of British ghost villages, a talk which incorporates haunted islands, weird MOD land, the UKs little-known second royal family, Dr Who, ladybird plagues, drowned villages and a haunted cupboard.

There will be a short break for cake then, in the second half, he’ll be sharing his passion for some of the world’s greatest postal pranks, with particular focus on Victorian trickster Reginald Bray who, over his lifetime, posted over 30,000 singular items through the newly formed Royal Mail. To say any more would be to spoil it.
