A night of Class Music
In 2014 young Scottish communists launched their long-awaited new social and fund-raising initiative last month with their first-ever gig at the Roxy bar in Glasgow.
YCL Scottish organiser Johnnie Hunter said the inspiration for the night came from the “rich musical tradition we have on the left.”
“I think as young communists it’s very important to foster a different social scene in opposition to the commercialised, often sexist and individualist outlook youth are fed presently.”
