As some may know, when I'm not hanging around on here, obsessing about Kidderminster Harriers or listening to groovy sounds, I'm a lecturer in political science. I'm currently trying to break out of my research ghetto (opposition and protest in Russia) by writing a paper on protest music (tentatively entitled 'Mixing pop and politics: the protest song is alive and well in the Trump-Brexit era). One thing I want to do is test some theories about the potential political impact of music in terms of consolidating beliefs, mobilisation and conversion and ideally would like to do this through an online survey of a particular artists' fans. I had hoped to be able to access fans of either or both Hurray for the Riff Raff or Kate Tempest via facebook or twitter but am not getting much help from their respective managements. Can anyone suggest another artist who might be classesd as 'political' in a broad sense who might be open for participation? Billy Bragg is the obvious target but is too obvious!
