Folk Singer Nick Mulvey Feels Sick That David Cameron Is A Fan

It is with an exceedingly large hint of amusement and irony that I see that todays Telegraph reports that Folk Singer Nick Mulvey feels sick that David cameron is a fan of his music.

It amuses me that the telegraph, a newspaper so well known for its pro Conservative bias that it is nicknamed the ‘ToryGraph’, ran this story, it amuses me even more that the story was published by the Telegraphs online political editor, Rosa Prince.

Ms Prince contacted Mulvey by twitter to ask how he felt about being the Prime Ministers new favourite artists and Mulvey responded by saying he felt “A Bit Sick.”

Poor Dave.  Of course it isn’t the first time that Cameron has been rejected by one of his musical heroes.  Both Johnny Marr and Morrissey of the Smiths have previously ‘banned’ the Prime Minister from listening to their music.

To be fair no self respecting musician in their right mind would want to be associated with the toxic brand that is Cameron’s Conservative party.  Surely the evil triumvirate of Cameron, George Osborne and Iain Duncan Smith must be the three most despised men in Great Britain.  It comes to something when artists do not want to be associated with you, even by an association as tenuous as saying that you like their music.

Well fair play to Nick Mulvey.  He isn’t an artist that I am familiar with but he has earned my respect through his distain for Cameron.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
