Essential reflections from a heady favourite.

Influences: Tom Of England

Essential reflections from a heady favourite.

Shrouded in mystery and suspicion Tom Of England is a man with a story to tell... Working as both a producer and disc jockey he has released a variety of unsuspecting music on a well versed and eclectic array of record labels including the likes of Hinge Finger, The Trilogy Tapes, Tummy Touch, Meakusma, Dope Jams and many others. He has operated under a spectacular range of monikers including Mammal, Otterman Empire, The Hankins Mountaineers and The Mirror Boys. He has established himself as an extraordinarily reputable figure, a man who knows more about music than me and you put together. 

This weekend he will play in London alongside Powder and Dave Harvey at Five Miles as Love International touches down in the capital far away from distant Croatian shores. 

We invited him to talk about influences and he has accompanied each with a piece of short prose or poem... Essential.

Warrior The Life Of Leonard Peltier

"I honestly believe that you made up your mind long ago that I was guilty and that you were going to sentence me to the maximum sentence permitted under the law, but this does not surprise me because you are a high-ranking member of the white racist American establishment which has consistently said "In God we trust" while they went about the business of murdering my people and attempting to destroy our culture. The only thing I am guilty of and which I was convicted for was of being Chippewa and sioux blood and for believing our sacred religion". Leonard Peltier. The action in this documentary takes place in Dakota where the Standing Rock pipeline protests are still going on today. In essence, the story of the incarceration of Leonard Peltier is the the story of corporate backed governments vs the people, greed vs Nature, fear vs love.
