An Anti-Luddite Manifesto?

 This post follows on my previous post... there's a reason I listen to college radio.  Without the strictures imposed by commercialism, these stations can play whatever they want, so obscure songs from former decades can be played.  In this vein, I present a song which I haven't heard in a long time, a song which is probably tongue-in-cheek, but just might be an anti-Luddite manifesto from Hull based band Red Guitars:


It's here where I note that the Luddites were not anti-technology per se, they were against technology which affected their ability to make a living.  I'm not a Luddite, and I'm not sure whether the song I posted is satirical or not- but it is a damn fine track.

I love college radio stations. They rummage through the stacks and find Truth and Beauty. They are not afraid to do this.
I am proud of them.
