A nightmare sang in Berkeley Square
What we need for June 14th is something their marquees and security guards can’t block out – NOISE – all afternoon- vuvuzelas. klaxons, drums, air horns, megaphones, bells… anything loud and discordant. Like Kenny Loggins…
This is a call-out for anyone who can make noise from 1pm on 14 June 2016 at Berkeley Square, London W1J. We really need some 12 volt sound systems to make some proper noise, just turn up, bring the noiz!
Remember the CIA drug-dealing Panamanian president Noriega the US Army flushed out by playing very loud music non-stop for days in 1989 – they’ll be begging for mercy by 5pm on June 14th – staggering pitifully with bleeding ears, to our laughter and contempt. Think original but any BIG BIG Noise!
Fuck London Property Forum – By Any Noise Necessary
Advance to Mayfair! Shut down the London Real Estate Forum, 14 June
The tight relationship between local authorities, estate agents and property developers leads to rising rents and a shortage of social housing, to the closure of libraries and social centres, the demolition of pubs and clubs.
They are complicit in a process of social cleansing, by which London is becoming too expensive for ordinary people. Even the fucking police are complaining…
They are all meeting at the London Property Forum in Berkely Square, London W1J on 14 June 2016, so we thought we could go there and make sure our thoughts about the self-serving profiteers are heard.

After General Noriega took refuge in the Papal Nuncio’s residence in Panama City, American troops directed loudspeakers his way in an attempt to blast him out. Here, SouthCom Network (SCN) radio actually included the playlist of the rock ‘n’ roll anthems requested by the troops for this purpose.
There are a few mistakes in the list, apparently. I’m told by our resident rock critic (and Senior Librarian) Pamela Morgan that, for example, the “Flesh and Fantasy” recording referred to is by Billy Idol (not David Bowie), and “If I Had A Rocket Launcher” is a Bruce Cockburn (not Cochran) song.
Full list here, read the lot for background, but see pages 4-6 for the playlist
One of Noriega’s faves?
