    105: A People's History of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Part 2

    105: A People's History of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Part 2

    Our states are failed, but our side has to win. In part 2 of our series A People's History of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, we hear from Efrim Manuel Menuck who plays guitar in the band. Amidst a late-April snow storm in Montreal, and on the 20th anniversary of the anti-FTAA protests in Quebec City, we talked with Efrim about the last 25 years of the band, the movement against capitalist globalization, our rejection of Zionism, student uprisings, and hope.
    Missed part 1 of this series? Have a listen here.
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor just released their most recent album, "G_d's pee at state's end" on Constellation records in April. It is a must-listen.

    104: A People's History of Godspeed You! Black Emperor

    For the last quarter-century, Godspeed You! Black Emperor have been putting out epic, orchestral, anarchistic rock music. Their albums and legendary live performances have fuelled radical social movements in their hometown of Montreal, and all around the world. To celebrate the release of the band's latest album G_d's Pee at State's End!, The Rebel Beat is doing a 2-part people's history of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. This first episode features a conversation between host Aaron Lakoff, anarchist graphic designer Kevin Lo, and Sharmeen Khan of No One Is Illegal Toronto and Upping The Anti. We examine how the band's music has been interwoven with some of the greatest moments of social upheaval of our time, from the protests against the war in Iraq, to the massive Quebec student strike of 2012, to the current pandemic.

    Part 2 will feature an in-depth discussion with Efrim Manuel Menuck from the band. Coming soon.

    Also, happy MayDay! It's a great day to listen to Godspeed's tune Bosses Hang.
