Hello. . . do any of you remember a) who wrote "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" and b) where I can look to find the text? Would like to translate this work into French, but cannot remember who wrote it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

cheers, Aux

If memory serves me correctly (always an iffy thing), it was written, or at least performed by Gil Scott-Heron. I have no idea where you can find the text of it, though. Hopefully, someone here will know.

I thought it was Jerry Rubin...

was this the work of The Last Poets, the grandaddies of (political) rap?--a very interesting group.

Maybe they should have a reunion...starting in Seattle.

It should've been Utah Phillips ! I know that he once said, "If elections could really change things, they'd be illegal."

I have this on vinyl. Gil was a founding member of the Last Poets, and was/is an English Prof at NYU last I heard. Will post the lyrics here at my next opportunity.

The text of THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED has been posted at Mudcat in, of all places, a couple of BS threads, but no music threads:

BS: YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Politics

Georgiansilver/Martin Gibson

I suspect they were copied and pasted from what seems to be a Gil Scott-Heron fan site.

Rain Dog: Yes, that's basically what I'm trying to do. I'm afraid I'll never find them all, though. My methods are sort of random.
