Spurred to action by the ongoing news about excessive greed and corruption, Mark Stewart teamed with Crass vocalist Eve Libertine and Slope and Dan Catsis from the Pop Group to produce this indictment of corporate greed, "Nothing is Sacred." The angry funk of this political track evolved from Stewart's studio sessions for his forthcoming album. Stewart, co-founder of the Pop Group, explained his inspiration to write such an intense track: "Allen Ginsberg once accused me of exaggerating the apocalypse. In this age of anxiety and in these days of rage, nothing – I repeat, nothing – is sacred," he says.

Mark Stewart's single "Nothing is Sacred" is available for free here.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
