about

World radio premiere broadcasted by Huey Morgan on BBC 6 Music, March 21, 2020 (who also made it Beat of the Week).

A tribute to Lorraine Hansberry. Released in defiance of dark times Concrete Things exalts the importance of using our cognitive gifts to steer ourselves towards the proverbial light.

Concrete things change the universe… and I hope so

I rather admire this human quality to make our own crutches as long as we need them. The only thing I'm saying is that once we can walk, you know, then drop them.

Intelligence

Science
Concrete things change the universe… and I hope so

People say that there is no difference between today and the past but of course there is. Of course each generation brings a triumph of rationality.

We don't need mysticism to exalt man; man exalts himself by his achievements and his power to rationalise… or EXCUSE me his power to reason! [Laughs] His rationalisation has its benefits too, I don't know if we could get along without that either.

…once we can walk, you know, then drop them.
