The Great Potato Famine
“Although the potato crop failed, the country was still producing and exporting more than enough grain crops to feed the population. Records show during the period Ireland was exporting approximately thirty to fifty shiploads per day of food produce. The Great Famine today is viewed by a number of historical academics as a form of either direct or indirect genocide.” http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Famine_(Ireland)
Here’s a nice example from history of how the capitalist ruling classes have treated the creators of their wealth.
Melbourne hardcore outfit OUR SOLACE are back with their long-overdue, debut full-length, “Death and What It Means to Live.” The first taste of the debut album, the new track called “An Exploration Of Emptiness”, is streaming below! Pre-orders will be announced within the coming days.
A product of blue-collar suburban Melbourne, “Death and what it means to live” took shape over a lengthy period – recorded and mixed in Melbourne by Daniel & Tim Emond. After close to a year of experimentation, fine-tuning and vocals and song structures, the very final touches were handled by the legendary Alan Douches (Modern Life is War, Converge, Comeback Kid, Foundation), a man responsible for mastering on a great deal of the bands favourite records.
