John Lennon: We Are The Government

From Gandhi to JFK and Martin Luther King, great men who stood up for our rights as human beings were all assassinated. Today, Jeremy Corbyn is assassinated on a daily basis. It may be the media that has taken the role of the rifle, but it is us that have the power to pull the trigger, or put the weapon down.

Let me be free. Let me be me! Don't make me old, with your thinking and words about how I should be. You don't have to come to my shows. I am giving tremendous energy with my voice, because that is me. Get my energy or shut up. A critic of my show I did on my 80th birthday. You wanted me to be coming in at the same time on the top of the bars with the tracks. Well, I like to syncopate my voice to come in before or after the music notes, not right on top of the tracks, you see. That's done in classical music, also. Remember? Yes.

A Dentist and One Direction Keep John Lennon in the News

It is more than 30 years since John Lennon was murdered yet his name continues to make the headlines. One Direction have a great following, but I believe they're not fit to tie the Beatles' shoelaces.

Spellbound: A Night with Siouxsie Sioux

Siouxsie has a feline grace from the wildness in her eyes to the way she paces about the stage, tossing her jet black mane, moving around in circles like a caged jungle cat. She was in full command of everything on the stage.

Pussy Riot at Meltdown

This past weekend during Yoko Ono's Meltdown festival, I sat down to discuss with Emely Neu her recent curatorial project and text, Let's Start a Pussy Riot (Rough Trade, 2012). Neu shares with me her work with Pussy Riot and talks about the perpetually changing definitions and performances of activism and artistic practices.

Yoko Ono Finds a Home at Meltdown

Jon Wilks

In truth, Yoko Ono has a vast and somewhat unnerving back-catalogue. Some of it ("Cut Piece") demonstrates real genius, while other pieces (many of the arty statements she makes on Twitter, for example) can feel a tad trite and vacuous. But in the presence of the work itself, much of it performance art that can only be experienced in the moment, one feels somewhat overwhelmed.

Pussy Riot: Not Sponsored by Nike or Coca-Cola

I was at a gig in south London last week when, so to speak, my day job popped up. One minute I was "chillaxing" (as I believe the kids and the prime minister like to say) to some genial indie rock, the next ... I'm listening to a longish poem about Russian authoritarianism.

Pussy Riot's 2012 Overture: A Year on From the Cathedral Stunt

A year later it all seems quite surreal. Did it really happen? Did the authorities seek the arrest of the Pussy Riot women and actually put three of them on trial charged with the serious offence of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred", a crime carrying a possible seven-year jail sentence? And were they really jailed? Sadly, of course, the answer is a triple yes.

There was a lot of interest some years ago when the childhood home of Rob Roy MacGregor, the Scottish folk hero that Mel Gibson did a darn fine job of playing in Braveheart, came up for auction. It went for something like three times the guide price (I know because I was the under bidder).

How to... Smile

After John passed, I systematically smiled into the mirror every morning. My smile was forced and looked terrible. But as I kept smiling for some time, my smile became a natural smile. It not only became a smile with my mouth and my eyes, but my shoulders, my tummy, and finally, with my whole body!
