Any spare hour over the past month has been spent ploughing into the new book I’m now writing. It’s to be titled ‘Musical Truth’, and will bring together all the findings regarding the dark manipulations of the mainstream music industry that I present in my public talks, plus a whole lot more. A vital component will be to show how what happens in the entertainment industry is only one small part of what’s going in the wider world, and what people need to understand and wake up to if we want to have anything vaguely resembling human freedom in the years to come. The book’s no easy task. I’m aware that the research and writing is going to take many months, so I don’t realistically expect it to be ready until the latter part of 2015. But at least it’s started. As the brilliant US speaker Mark Passio is find of saying, ‘there are only two mistakes you can make on the path to truth. One is not starting, the other is not going all the way.’
I’m gradually ticking off the various territories of Europe, and always appreciate the opportunity to visit a new one for the first time. I got the chance on Saturday 25th to hit Montenegro, one of the various nation states that previously made up Yugoslavia. This had a dual purpose; to link with the conscious hip-hop MC Disl Automatic, whose music I’ve featured prominently on my Sound Of Freedom shows, (it was actually one of Disl’s tracks that inspired the name of the show,) and to play a gig. Sadly the experience involved flying with the repulsive Ryanair, but with all other airlines costing a bomb and none flying direct, they were the only option. The scenery as we came into land at Podgorica was stunning. Montenegro, (meaning ‘black mountain’) is flanked by breathtaking mountain ranges interspersed with streams and lakes.
