I’ve been introduced to the musical activism of Warsaw Pack by a friend this last couple of weeks. I’ve got hold of their two albums – Gross Domestic Product and Stocks and Bombs. They rock. Hip-hop, jazz, groove, funk, rock – mixed and blended. And lyrics that cut through the blingtastic, egocentric, soulless celebrity shit that you wade knee-deep in all along Oxford Street.
