Dave Randall in Conversation with Peter Hooton

Friday 26th May

Dave Randall, guitarist with the legendary Faithless and his own band Slovo, joins WoWFest 2017 to discuss his new book, Sound System:The Political Power of Music. From the Glastonbury Festival to the Arab Spring, Pop Idol to Trinidadian Carnival, Dave finds political inspiration across the musical spectrum and poses the question: how can we make music serve the interest of the many rather than the few? Sound System is a book of raves, riots and revolution. 
Tom Robinson says of Sound System, ‘This engaging, hugely readable book describes aspects of the musical world I recognise alongside other, deeply shocking aspects of which I'd never been remotely aware. It should be compulsory reading for anyone interested in the state of the world - and in the essential, life-affirming role music can play in changing it for the better.’ 
Dave will give an illustrated talk and play a little live guitar. He will be in conversation with Peter Hooton, lead singer of the Farm, one of Liverpool’s best loved bands.
