Real Surreal
Ed Borrie

It is no exaggeration to say that Ed Borrie has been a formative influence on R*E*P*E*A*T, as on many others. As a member of S*M*A*S*H, he helped liberate the minds of thousands of working class kids, showing that they could make a difference. He toured the world, played the massive Anti Nazi League festival and smuggled a song about assassinating the Tory cabinet into the hit parade. Since then, he has continued to be equally creative, most recently collaborating with Mick Jones of The Clash.
During lockdown we caught up with Ed for tea and some tunes as we chatted about Ed's present, future and past.

Here it is again. Bring your own tea.
