Winner of this year’s Penderyn Music Writing
Prize, Daniel discusses the pivotal period between 1976 and 1992 that saw
politics and pop music come together for the first time in British history in his
fascinating book Walls Come Tumbling Down.
From Rock Against Racism in Victoria Park in 1978 featuring The Clash, through
2-Tone and Red Wedge, we ask was it a golden age or could music once again
instigate social change?
