The Rebellion Festival (Blackpool, UK, August) report:
We have a very special event to open Rebellion Festivals 2014 on Thursday in the Empress Ballroom.
In commemoration of the thousands on both sides who died brutal, pointless deaths in Word War I, Penny Rimbaud and Eve Libertine present a reworking of the Crass classic Yes, Sir, I Will complete with a six piece band. They are joined by Gee Vaucher who will be showing the classic film of the same name. As Rimbaud puts it – ‘It will be good to do Yes, Sir at the festival because it’s probably more relevant today than it was thirty-five [actually, thirty-one] years back, and all the more so for this being the centenary year of ‘the war to end all wars’ – will we ever learn?’.
