A poignant look at the history of the Windrush generation from the mind of Si Phili.

They were named after HMT Empire Windrush, the vessel which brought them to these shores. More recently they have been caught up in a hellish and unfair fight with the UK government regarding their citizenship status. This track was produced by Richy Spitz.

Skrabl: The Emperor’s New Garms
Very impressive release from Skrabl, as he delivered his new album yesterday.
