It's Your Time You're Wasting: A Teacher's Tales o&hellip by Frank Chalk

Chalk's book is a true classic, one for the ages. He does not merely describe things as they are (make no mistake they are as terrible as he recounts), he looks outward to the interplay of welfarism, political correctness, the rights culture and other bedevilments to a decent society. This book can be taken as part of a series of works including Wasting Police Time, the Abolition of Britain, A Land Fit For Criminals, and Life At The Bottom. It is near essential reading to be frank, no pun intended. In 2005 I spent a few short weeks in two secondary moderns, both in Averagetown.

Dave's fourth solo single is the most hard-hitting so far. This is a really dirty squelchy piece of electronica with a massive chorus that just reels the listener in lock, stock. Depeche Mode fans should embrace it, but I suspect Dave will win a few converts of his own. I recommend trying the Zombie Room Full Intro Extended Version if you can get hold of it. Fantastic re-scoping of the single mix. This track deserves heavy rotation in the clubs; not many records I've heard recently pack as much whallop as this does.
