Jock Purdon: Pitwork, Politics & Poetry Originally recorded from vinyl and later converted to FLAC; apologies for the quality. The Brave British Worker -- The 'Cotia Banner -- When DeLeval Stood Alone -- The Easington Explosion -- The Echo of Pit Boots -- Farewell to 'Cotia -- Hally's Piebald Gallawa -- Hullo El Salvador -- In Memoriam -- It's Miner This, It's Miner That -- Jackboots -- The Joe Hill Blues -- Pitracide -- Sands of Time -- Silent Testimony -- The Tories and Their Dreams -- Tunes of Death -- Bound for Van Dieman's Land -- Who am I to ask them why? This pit may live that pit must die? They say but Sir its economics. That's juggling by financial comics. What maxim has the NCB? The miner's lot or LSD And further Sir it can be said A pit must die if in the red Be this so I must resent This anti-social precedent So until the happy day When every pit can pay its way You cannot Sir rebuke the tide Or get away with Pitracide! - Jock Purdon This album is full of poignant, humourous and powerful lyrics. The songs conjure up many memories for me and are also very relevant to the political struggles of today.
