    This is so interesting. Recently I worked with a group of young people in Rawmarsh who drew on the Italo Brothers Stamp on the ground to make a film which was shown to government about how angry they were that they had no youth service and no one listened to them. It felt very distinctive and local and the song seemed very angry.

  2. Many thanks for this Kate! That sounds like a very interesting project indeed. Is there anything online about it? I’d like to hear more.
