Neil Young covers Bob Dylan in political new edition of Fireside Sessions

Neil Young

Neil Young has brought back his Fireside Sessions series for a sixth episode, sharing a deeply political new episode.

Performing from his porch instead of the usual position next to his fireplace, Young shared a number of protest songs from across his career, as well as a cover of Bob Dylan‘s ‘The Times They Are A-Changin”.

During the set, Young played ‘Alabama’ from his ‘Harvest’ album before taking on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young protest song ‘Ohio’, as well as a rarity called ‘Campaigner’ and his song ‘Southern Man’.

He then went on to cover the Dylan classic, before sharing a version of his own track ‘Lookin’ For A Leader’, editing the lyrics to criticise Donald Trump and his reaction to the recent Black Lives Matter protests.

“Yeah, we had Barack Obama, and we really need him now,” he sung. “The man who stood behind him has to take his place somehow/ America has a leader building walls around our house/ Who don’t know Black lives matter, and it’s time to vote him out.”

Neil Young recently shared a new open letter, criticising Donald Trump’s response to the Black Lives Matter protests being held across America and the world following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

“Although I think our president is responsible for a lot of this unrest we feel today as he has fanned the flames and tried to turn us against one another for his political reasons, I am thankful that we are all standing for what we believe, and I think we will be a better country for this,” he wrote.

Announcing the launch of the Fireside Sessions back in March, Young wrote: “Because we are all at home and not venturing out, we will try to do a stream from my fireplace with my lovely wife filming. It will be a down-home production, a few songs, a little time together.”

Neil Young released ‘Homegrown’ last month, a long-anticipated “lost” album from the mid-1970s. A five-star NME review of the album called it “a shimmering diamond well worth unearthing”.

Primal Scream’s Simone Marie Butler on the #LetTheMusicPlay campaign: “We need you all to come together”

To mark the launch of today’s #LetTheMusicPlay campaign with over 1,400 artists signing an open letter to the government help save the UK’s live music scene from catastrophe, radio DJ, Primal Scream bassist and Featured Artists Coalition Ambassador Simone Marie Butler writes for NME about why action is needed now to stop irreparable damage. 

“To say it’s been a strange year so far really is an understatement of epic proportions. As we watched festival after tour after gig get pulled and optimistically rescheduled, we’ve battled with our Spring, Summer, Autumn and now probably Winter live music fixes being made absent from our diaries and lives. Glastonbury shifted into its first online digital identity as ‘Glasthomebury’ as we watched from our sofas. Who would’ve thought that as futuristic as 2020 sounded, it would bring with it such a devastating reality? The issue of our own mortality clearly supersedes anything else, but when it comes to every person whose financial security and income rely on any form of musical performance, the truth is, the live music industry is waiting at the box office window tentatively, to see if its name is on the guestlist for 2021.

“There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has been and continues to be a monstrous and invisible threat to us on so many levels. Livelihoods are crumbling, lives have been tragically lost and we are still not out of the woods. Not in this generation have we seen the likes of such a global catastrophe.”

“Clearly we must never lose sight that at the heart of this and most importantly, are the NHS frontline workers and those fighting for their lives. Those who don’t have the luxury right now to be angry about this as they’re too busy fighting for theirs or the lives of others. The incredible work our doctors and nurses are continuing to do under such ongoing constraints is something we are all in awe of.

“In the UK, job centre claimants have risen 126% to 2.8million since the start of the lockdown. The live music sector including venues, touring bands, crews, festivals, DJs, clubs, studios and many other areas is no different. Not just these sectors but every connecting industry which provides the framework and backdrop to the final piece.”

“Music is part of our cultural heritage. It’s part of our self expression, our vision, the fabric and soundtrack of our lives and experiences. It’s part of human connection. Let’s also remember the music industry is one of our biggest income revenues and exports.

“With that being said, we simply cannot afford to let the live industry go under.

“It may sound like I’m being over dramatic, but I can assure you after reading through documents, statistics, talking to Oliver Dowden (Secretary of State for arts and culture) about the crucial help needed, that the facts in the cold light of day are not pretty.

“The live music industry and all its surrounding counterparts are going to need urgent help if they are to survive and thrive come next year. The association of Independent festivals have concluded that around 90% of AIF organisers could risk going under by 2021 without any financial support from the government. That’s the bottom line and it’s a bleak reality.

“Based on impact surveys, 92% of AIF festival organisers have said that their firms are at risk without Government intervention, with the effects of COVID-19 likely to result in businesses collapsing under refund requests” (read the full article here)

“The Featured Artists Coalition – which sees supporters such as Johnny Marr and musicians from across the entire scope of music – is going to be instrumental in getting this vital help from the government, but we need the help of the public as well as established artists to speak up. We need to be unified in all areas of the music industry to get through this. This isn’t about focusing on small elements of the industry, it’s about the entire umbrella of the music industry as a collective, the bigger picture.”

“As some of the lockdown restraints start to lift, we are seeing shops open, a light suggestion of normality returning, yet this is not without risk. Music venues and festivals cannot operate at 30% like other retail outlets. We cannot social distance at a festival with thousands of people and that’s even without alcohol thrown into the mix.

“Just as schools and other businesses plan to re–open and need to be able to do that safely so does everything else. The live music industry will be the last to start their engine amidst this pandemic. There is talk of on site testing, temperature checks, etc… all of which needs to be throughly researched and have scientific and logistical backing.

“If you want to help make sure the live music industry in all its guises is still alive next year, then this is the time to come and support the campaign by FAC in conjunction with Music Venue Trust. We are calling on the public to shout as loud as they can about this. We have an entire list of bands and musicians who have given their names to the letter being sent to Oliver Dowden, but music is a two way exchange. We need you, the ones who shout and scream and come to see us play. The supporters of live music who know what a gift it is. This is your campaign as much yours as it is ours.”

“On July 2, we launch the #letthemusicplay campaign. We are calling on bands, musicians, DJs and all involved in live music to share this hashtag to create a collective public voice by posting a short sentence about why live music is so important to them. To share photos of live shows and memories with the hashtag on all social media platforms online.

“The FAC are constantly lobbying with MPs and politicians in the arts sector to tackle this current situation. Please visit their site for all up to date information. You don’t have to be an active campaigner but just to have your support would mean the world right now.

“The more of us that come together and unify, the greater the influence and opportunity there will be to instruct change. Music can bring us together and create life changing moments. I believe this is one of those moments.”

#LetTheMusicPlay: Over 1,000 artists come together to call on government to stop “catastrophic damage” to live music

Published

Radiohead, The Cure, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Johnny Marr, Dizzee Rascal, Primal Scream, Paul McCartney, Dua Lipa, The Rolling Stones and Coldplay are among the huge list of artists who have signed an open letter to the government for the #LetTheMusicPlay campaign – demanding immediate action to prevent “catastrophic damage” to the music industry in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown.

Last month, the Music Venue Trust have penned a letter signed by over 560 of their venues calling for a £50million cash injection to save the “world-beating £5.2billion per year music industry”, allowing these spaces to “hibernate” until October and prevent their permanent closure. Around 92% of festival businesses are also at risk of collapse and called for government support to “make it to next year without being wiped out”. With singing, dancing, standing close to others and being in confined spaces are deemed to be “high risk activities” under current guidelines, the venue community then hit back at the government’s suggested “five point plan” to “raise the curtain” on live performances”.

Now, over 1,400 artists including Liam Gallagher, Rita Ora, Sam Smith and Lewis Capaldi have signed an open letter to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden – in a bid to “show the vital importance of the UK’s live music industry, ensure the Government cannot ignore live music and make noise to get the public and financial support the industry needs to survive”.

“Amazing gigs don’t happen without an amazing team behind the stage, but they’ll all be out of jobs unless we can get back out there doing what we love,” said Gallagher.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis added: “If the Government doesn’t step up and support the British arts, we could lose vital aspects of our culture forever.”

Organisers say that “50% of the entire workforce is facing redundancy, 90% of grassroots venues face closure, many operators are facing insolvency and having cancelled this summer and many festivals will struggle to return next year.”

Read the full letter below:

“Dear Secretary of State,

“UK live music has been one of the UK’s biggest social, cultural, and economic successes of the past decade. From world-famous festivals to ground-breaking concerts, the live music industry showcases, supports, and develops some of the best talent in the world – on and off-stage.

“As important as it is, our national and regional contribution isn’t purely cultural. Our economic impact is also significant, with live music adding £4.5billion to the British economy and supporting 210,000 jobs across the country in 2019.

“Like every part of the entertainment industry, live music has been proud to play our part in the national effort to reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keep people safe. But, with no end to social distancing in sight or financial support from government yet agreed, the future for concerts and festivals and the hundreds of thousands of people who work in them looks bleak.

“This sector doesn’t want to ask for government help. The promoters, festival organisers, and other employers want to be self-sufficient, as they were before lockdown. But, until these businesses can operate again, which is likely to be 2021 at the earliest, government support will be crucial to prevent mass insolvencies, and the end of this great world-leading industry.

“Government has addressed two important British pastimes – football and pubs – and it’s now crucial that it focuses on a third, live music. For the good of the economy, the careers of emerging British artists, and the UK’s global music standing, we must ensure that a live music industry remains when the pandemic has finally passed.”

Following today’s publication of the letter, artists, venues and festivals and will be posting films and photos of their last live gigs or events using the hashtag ‘Let The Music Play’ on social media – and encouraging other fans to do the same.

The Featured Artists’ Coalition, whose members include Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, have also leant their support to the campaign.

“In 1992 Radiohead played about 100 shows throughout the UK in small venues the length and breadth of this country,” said O’Brien. “This was where we started to learn our craft.

“We continued to tour this country and by 1997 we were headlining the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival. The live industry in this country is the lifeblood to for the music industry in this country.”

FAC general manager David Martin added: “Since the start of the pandemic it has been clear that the music industry, and particularly live music, would be heavily hit.  That has become even more stark with the easing of lockdown.  As many businesses reopen and return to something resembling normality, there is no end in sight for the UK’s venues, clubs and festivals or the artists and their teams that earn their living from them.”

“The UK’s live music industry contributed £4.5billion and almost a quarter of a million jobs to the UK economy in 2019.  Live music is the fuel for the wider music industry, supporting creators to make the music that makes a success of our envied recorded sector. Beyond the economic impact however, our music industry makes an enormous contribution to our wellbeing, our society and our culture. Without the urgent support that we have outlined to Government, that enormous financial contribution will vanish along with huge part of our national identity.”

This comes after the Music Venue Trust asked the government for urgent clarification, amid fears that a radical shake-up of planning laws to boost the UK economy could threaten the future of venues.

Earlier this year saw the Music Venue Trust launch the Save Our Venues campaign, with a crowdfunding bid to prevent 556 independent UK venues from closure. It has temporarily saved over 140 of these venues, but this funding will not last far into the summer.
