Rough Guide To Music

Pitchfork: K’naan: Troubadour

Still, I wish I left Troubadour feeling like I knew more about Somalia than I did going in, and I’m not entirely sure that’s the case.

If you wanted to know more about Somalia, you could always, y’know, pick up a book or something, if that isn’t dreadfully retrograde of me.

Of Strife And Men

20 People Who Will Save Ireland

wo weeks ago, the Sunday Tribune listed the people who had played a role in getting the country into its current mess. But we are where we are. The focus now must be on getting out of the hole we are in. Here we identify the 20 people who can play a leading role in getting the Irish nation back on its collective feet.

Well, 19 men and one woman (we can exclude both ‘Sean and Mary Citizen’, whose role is to take whatever’s coming on the chin).

To paraphrase a well-known priapic war criminal of Irish extraction, ‘ask not what your country can do for your man, ask what you can do for your man’.
