As Hanson's Hole at Whatley Quarry ramps up the extraction of mendip stone to feed the twin eco-follies of HS2 and Hinkley C, local attention turns to Hansons application for a second extractive crater at Westdown. This is the song I wrote when we were resisting Whatleys expansion in the 90's and grieving the woodland and habitats lost to the road building programme of the time. This is me and Shannon singing it in Santa barbara on Seize The Day’ US tour, 2000. It stands today. ...
My absolute favourite. So much respect that you’re still standing up and singing out to try and limit the climate catastrophe locally and globally.
Just reading that has my heart racing 😢💕
Is dead woman's bottom there anymore, or is it just part of the hole? I remember it being a breathtaking beautiful spot, was a tiny hamlet, I took nomad there and we sang around the fire, was yellow submarine James birthday, I believe that you sang that song then.
i absolutely love this, and remember Whatley Quarry and Hinkley C protests in the 90s as they were among my first. Such an incredible heartfelt anthem, i used to sing it at security guars at Newbury. So frustrating that it's still so relevant today. 🙁
you are such troupers....IM so glad I found sieze the day..much love and respect to you all. x
