First off, thank you for all the wonderful messages of support and for the donations. My apologies for not yet having replied individually to everyone – I have spent the past week answering emails and have still not managed to clear my inbox. If I may ask those waiting for a reply to exercise a little patience, I will do my best to respond as soon as time permits.
Two nights ago, I watched a BBC Newsnight report on an exhibition about censorship of music in Stalin’s Soviet Union, currently doing the rounds in Tel Aviv(!) before coming to London. Stalin banned all genres of music which he found ‘un-Soviet like’ – not just rock ‘n’ roll, but also traditional Russian folk tunes. Dissidents found a way to record songs on x-ray film: the exhibition features these medical scans of human bones, engraved with ‘Rock Around the Clock’ and other classics. But for me the most interesting part of the BBC report concerned a Haifa-based Palestinian Arab musician, Jowan Safadi, arrested and charged for incitement because of a song performed at a music festival in 2010.
The song that made me famous – or infamous depending on how you look at it – (((Survivors))) is two years old today.
A song so effective against the Globalist agenda that I’ve now been convicted in an English court of causing ‘gross offence’ – for sharing my own work on social media.

Here’s a recent version of my short performance in Vichy at last year’s celebration in honour of Professor Robert Faurisson‘s 88th birthday. As well as Gerard Menuhin’s Tell Me More Lies, you can also hear a little speech I made in French (with English subtitles) at the beginning. Charmant, n’est-ce pas?
First off, a slight correction as to my speculations yesterday regards the Tommy Robinson affair. Apparently, Robinson was aware of reporting restrictions on the case. He simply did not understand why these restrictions were in place, namely to avoid jury contamination. Everyone has the right to fair trial. Similar restrictions are currently in place for several high-profile nationalist trials. We cannot complain about contempt rules only when it suits us. Readers will have decide for themselves whether or not Robinson’s actions were deliberately intended to a) jeopardise potential convictions and/or b) to deflect attention away from my case. The most relevant point is that it is indeed the issue of free speech which is the prime motivator of current support for Robinson. We now need to open his supporters’ eyes to those who are in fact behind the desire to further limit our most precious of freedoms.
Parisian Songs of War – Giuseppe Fallisi and Alison Chabloz
Yesterday, I finally received the full video footage of Italian tenor Giuseppe Fallisi and I performing together in Vichy last year in honour of Professor Robert Faurisson’s 88th birthday. Although the acoustics are far from perfect, it was a pleasure to listen again after all this time. Entitled in Italian Parisian Songs of War Mr Fallisi’s own musical compositions take the words of Baudelaire, Rimbaud and Verlaine – poets studied and taught by the professor. Indeed, the professor first became known to the French public at large because of his work on the poetry of Rimbaud.
