With Commie Francis

Saints and Martyrs!

60f36ab7e589b.jpg

Songs about Catholic saints and various martyrs including the lefties and anarchists and anti-fascists and victims of state violence who are a bit like saints to me, a big old Commie.

This was such a crowded topic and I am very excited for the results but I did have to eliminate some big deal martyrs such as Jesus so try to imagine an extra 4 minutes where I play BAUHAUS - STIGMATA MARTYR

Then 5-6 lots of new exciting music and a new chapter in me and Pethie's polar bear saga!

listen to old shows on mixcloud!
stay up to date via good old fashioned e-mail list!
twitter?
and there's afacebook group! which is frankly where most of the action is.

refresh the page to update the playlist and look! a chat where you can tell me what you think!
