"Our Union": UAW/ CAW Local 27 from 1950 to 1990 (Fabriks: Studies in the Working Class) by Jason Russell
English | Jan. 24, 2012 | ISBN: 192683643X | 336 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The post-war period witnessed dramatic changes in the lives of working-class families. Wages rose, working hours were reduced, pension plans and state social security measures offered greater protection against unemployment, illness, and old age, the standard of living improved, and women and members of immigrant communities entered the labour market in growing numbers. Existing studies of the post-war period have focused above all on unions at the national and international levels, on the “post-war settlement,” including the impact of Fordism, and on the chiefly economic issues surrounding collective bargaining, while relatively scant attention has been paid to the role of the union local in daily working-class experience.

The half-Finnish Sinikka sets The half-finished heaven - and other verse by Tomas Tranströmer - on her fourth album for ECM. “Despondency breaks off its course / Anguish breaks off its course / The vulture breaks off its flight. / The eager light streams out …” Such vivid images establish a tone for what is primarily an instrumental album this time, with a striking blend of sound-colours in music written by Langeland.

The half-finished heaven is the fourth ECM album from Sinikka Langeland, the kantele player, singer and composer from Finnskogen, south-eastern Norway’s “Forest of the Finns”. The music she has written for the ensemble here touches on, as she says, her “whole scale of expression”. Sinnika’s highly original and self-contained oeuvre is informed, in changing degree, by folk traditions of Norway and Finland, as well as classical and contemporary music and improvisation from jazz and other sources. Each of her gifted bandmates brings his own range of colours to the music.

Musicians are notorious for breaking up their own bands due to a disinterested public, a hatred for everybody around them, or not being able to fully explore their "always obvious" drum'n'bass direction. Martin Carr, however, chooses none of the above. He seems to have parted ways with the experimental populists the Boo Radleys only to fashion together a patchwork scarecrow of his former mates. Go With Yourself (The Fingertip Saint Sessions Vol. II) ditches the hesitant exercises of his debut – a bit more acoustic stool-sit than studio disarray – and decides to fully explore his ubiquitous, contradictory balladry.
