Following Bedward's prompt in his latest post, I thought I would post my own link to content. Personally, I'd very much like to see more forum members posting links to stuff they've recently become enthusiastic about - stuff that perhaps the rest of us might have missed.

This is one of my discoveries of the summer, 'Euskal Herria Jamaika Clash' by Basque singer/anti-globalization activist Fermin Muguruza, featuring veteran Jamaican DJ U-Roy, a combination of accordion-driven folk with drum and bass/reggae beats.

Me too, loved it in fact. Great animation, punchy music, anti-IMF, even a bit of accordion at the end. Ta for that, Rod.

Charlie WebMaster, if you're reading this, here's a suggestion: Could you maybe open up a topic called YouTube so that we can post our links for others to see video clips and other visual downloads. It would be good for all the various recommendations to be in one place for easier access.

never put off until tomorrow what you can do today

Great idea Norman, I wanted to suggest that last week after I had a great link to a Grateful Dead clip. a band I really did n't know much about. I'll try and find the link and post it.

However why does n't the sound work on my pc? the video is great, no problem, but I can't get sound. Even the sea sick dave site that howard recommended, the clips of music work but no sound on the video.

As long as you don't otherwise have problems with the sound on your computer, my guess is the Flash player (on which the whole thing depends) isn't configured properly to work within your browser. Are you using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox? If you happen to have both installed, you could try using the one that you didn't use earlier just to see if it works (I prefer to use Firefox but sometimes it has problems with plugins and have to switch back to IE, never problems with YouTube though). Otherwise downloading the latest version of Flash player (version 9, http://www.adobe.com/uk/downloads/) might fix it.

a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!

Thanks Rod. I'll give that a try. I use IE (I think).

I can't even listen to the samples on calabash music so I've been reading up on the flash player but a lot of what is said is way over my head,

It's times like this when i wish I was taller.

great video
