Check out the title track from Jack Henderson’s brand new album, ‘Where’s the Revolution’. Almost 20 years on from his well-received debut album, ‘Cheap Tattoo’, Henderson still has plenty to say and ‘Where’s the Revolution’ is a spirited song, featuring excellent guitar-work and his characterful, distinctive vocal.
Henderson says of the last single release from the album: “Societal change is a slow moving beast. It seems we are all too frequently persuaded to endure extended political and economic oppression in the interest of some ‘greater authority’. We know all too well institutionalised power will not give up its privilege willingly, but as Malcolm X said, ‘I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.'”
The new album from the multi-instrumentalist and producer is a solo record in the truest sense. Henderson wrote, recorded and produced the album himself just outside his home-town of Glasgow. Also, he more or less played all the instruments heard on the record himself. The result is a coherent, dynamic record worthy of your attention. Check it out.
