John Sinclair is best known as the Sixties “marijuana” activist who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for giving two joints to an undercover policewoman. He was eventually freed when John Lennon and Yoko Ono spoke out on his behalf.

Less understood is his role as the founder and chairman of the radical anti-war group, The White Panther Party, an offshoot of the Black Panthers. The Black Panther Party was a militant political organization formed after the brutal murders of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Robert Kennedy.

The Nixon Administration and the FBI launched a secret program called COINTELPRO to disrupt and ultimately destroy the Black Panthers and the Anti-War movement. As part of this program, John Sinclair was set up and imprisoned on marijuana charges. When the government could no longer justify denying him a bond over two joints, they falsely charged him with a Federal conspiracy to blow up a CIA station, in order to make him disappear.

You can find John Sinclair Books, CDs and other interesting stuff in the Iron Man Shop

Double Gatefold Vinyl (Distributed By Cargo 13 Oct 2014)
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Iron Man Records

O.U.C.H is the long awaited second album from P.A.I.N. The South London conspiracy offer the world a radioactive audio file crammed full of Nuclear Dub, Genetically modified Ska, and BSE laced Punk Rock. The album is about the prison system, its use against the defenceless, and laws that cannot be defended. The band have found allies in unexpected places, such as the well documented liason with Howard Marks and the support of Kate Bush. Always outspoken, P.A.I.N see their music as a vehicle of political expression; There is much more to Our Universe than the prohibition of Cannabis, you only have to look at the poetic irony of simultaneous fuel protests and widespread environmental catastrophe. Everyone will talk of the necessity for radical change, yet still, nothing changes. Are we all just consumers for the profit of the IMF? Do our lives really amount to a column of figures? Just who has the power now? Surprisingly, it’s still all of us. The Protest Movement has become global in response, and we now have a genuine opportunity to fight back at the real enemy; no longer the copper, or politician, but the evil bastards who claim with a straight face that they own 90% of the worlds resources. We are all born on this planet and every single human being alive has an equal right to life, air, water, and food. They tell us that this is being naive and unrealistic. We tell them that we will never rest until our demands are met, they had better sleep lightly – P.A.I.N.

Original sleeve artwork by top British cartoonist Pete Loveday whose Saga of Russell comic books can be found around the world. P.A.I.N feature ex-members of R.D.F and A.O.S.3. Members of P.A.I.N can also be found in SUICIDE BID, RUBELLA BALLET, LESS and LEGION OF DYNAMIC DISCHORD.

JESSE TERRY FULL BIO
Jesse Terry is an internationally award-winning singer-songwriter whose transcendent life and music make him one of the most prolific indie artists today; his intimacy with audiences, sincerity, and approachability solidifying him as a favorite at nationwide live venues and concert series. With three full-length albums, The Runner, Empty Seat On A Plane, and Stay Here With Me, this salt of the earth musician’s lyrical mastery, emotional depth, and soothing voice have often been compared to the likes of Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne, Ray LaMontagne, and James Taylor, reaching deep into listeners’ hearts to envelope them in shared joy, sadness, love, and unrelenting hope. The Grand Prize winner of The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, The NSAI/CMT Song Contest, and The We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Awards, he has garnered worldwide acclaim including the elite honor of performing for US and NATO troops stationed at Thule Air Base in Greenland, and an official endorsement by Stonebridge Guitars International.

“His ability to craft memorable songs is complimented by his supreme ability to deliver them in a sometimes funny, sometimes gut wrenching, but always sincere and authentic manner,”  praises Dave Dircks, host of the #1 Acoustic Podcast on iTunes, Acoustic Long Island. “At the core of it all, his personality – sunny naivety meets gritty wisdom – is what sets Jesse Terry apart…”

On his own from a young age, Jesse defied the odds by nurturing his passion for music; attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music, landing a Nashville Publishing deal only two months after graduation, touring the globe, and building a close and ever-expanding fan base who avidly funded his last two albums via Pledge Music campaigns. His audience grew quickly from one, his grandmother who was lulled to sleep by his guitar playing and toe-tapping, into a strong grassroots foundation of worldwide individuals who were captivated in settings spanning from intimate listening rooms to house concerts and festivals both small and large. Person by person, state by state, country by country, his fans, supporters, and colleagues have grown exponentially in the past few years, including at multiple gigs where he opened for major artists such as Darrell Scott, Paula Cole, Tony Lucca, Liz Longley, and founder of Jefferson Airplane, Marty Balin.

Though the momentum of his career accelerates daily, he attributes his success to his wife and touring partner, Jess, saying her unwavering support was the reason for his first full tour. Cosmically drawn to each other when they met in the South Pacific in 2010, and married only six months later, Jesse and Jess epitomize the kind of love that romantics throughout time have both sought after and struggled to describe. As being apart wrenched their hearts more and more whenever Jesse toured for days, then weeks at a time, the couple decided to unite on all fronts, and travel the country and world together. The solid foundation behind her husband’s career in all ways from being his muse and moral support to setting up the stage and co-managing the family business, together the two tour nonstop; their only address the blur of a license plate number as it flies down whichever street they happen to traverse.

The road now his home, his fans his family, and Jess his rock, Jesse Terry’s music and life are truly about the journey. His original sound continues to galvanize national and global exposure, including recent placements on the CW’s “Hart of Dixie,” Lufthansa Airlines, and PBS’ “Roadtrip Nation,” fueling the prospects of his future steadily ablaze, trails of accolades following in his wake.

“(He’s) a force to be reckoned with,” iconic DJ of NYC’s Rock & Roots Public Radio WFUV John Platt calls Jesse. “His well-crafted songs rank right there with Ryan Adams, Rhett Miller, and other masters of alt-country.” Legendary Tony Arata, renowned singer-songwriter and 2012 Inductee into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame lauded him by saying, “I have been a fan of Jesse Terry since the first time I heard him. He’s a humble – and humbling – talent.”

Undoubtedly intrepid, yet refreshingly genuine and modest, Jesse sums up his view on success, close connection with fans and strangers alike, and excitement for each day with an apropos quote from the film Into the Wild:

“Happiness,” he says, “is only real when shared.”
