6/03/08 - Student Elections Special!

Student elections.. always a fraught time of year, when a young person's mind turns to changing the world. Not us, of course; we just play music. And as anyone knows, music never changes anything.

As we were leaving the studio we were beset upon... it seems things got a little out of hand over lunch. The police, in an effort to regain control after earlier reports of intimidation and violence began to circulate among the student body politic, began using tear gas. Fortunately the wind was with the electioneers. The gas was caught by a freak gust, settling across the road around the members of Socialist Worker protesting against free and fair elections. A spokesman for the student body said "It's great. Really, really great. Even if we all lose this election, I feel like we have already won a great victory for democracy. Plus, we got a bit of a rammy off the rozzers, which is always nice. " Students, eh?

The acts with the * beside them are all Little Rock artists with music available at Little Rock Records, or on our upoming NO RAVE compilation. Check it out!
