about

CHECK OUT THE VIDEO - youtu.be/WW-ZgqEf2d4
"Babylon Children" is a cover of Aswad’s powerful “African Children” track
This updated version is as politically relevant today as it was when originally released 34 years ago in highlighting poverty, housing conditions and inequality.
In light of the Grenfell Tower tragedy I thought the track was appropriate to support this cause, as it occurred very close to the area I spent most of my life in and many of my friends have been affected personally and lost family members.
Spikey Tee’s end vocal coda of “Chant down babylon and help turn the page” adds the importance of making your voice heard in a society that so often sweeps aside the voices of the many in favour of the few
All proceeds of the single /EP release will raise money for those affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire that occurred in London in June 2017

Track Name: Babylon Children (album version)
So many of mother earth’s children
A widdly woh widdly oh
They’re living in a Babylon Situation
A widdly wo-oh
So many of my fathers children
A widdly woh widdly woh
They’re living n a Babylon situation
A widdly wo-oh, oh-oh-oh

Mother Earth Children
Living in a Babylon situation
My Father Children
Tell me, Do they know where they’re coming from

All the nation living in these tenements
Crying and applying to the council for assistance
Their tribulation it’s so sad
Their environment it is so bad
High Rise Concrete, no back yard for the children to play

Mother Earth Children
Living in a Babylon situation
My Father Children (down there)
Do they know where they’re coming from

All the people living in these tenements
Pre –cast stone wall cubicle
Is where they live now
Their rent increasing every other day
Austerity measures a suck out them pay
Living so maager on the 27th floor
Longing for the next place to dwell

Mother Earth Children (down there)
Living on a Babylon situation
My Father Children
Tell me, Do they know where they’re coming from
Mother Earth Children (down there)
Living on a Babylon situation
My Father Children (down there)
Do they know where they’re coming from

Chant down Babylon , Yay yay, Chant down Babylon…

Come make we chant down Babylon and help turn the page
And don’t stop from talk fi make them know we want change
Chant down Babylon, shape the next stage
And don’t stop from talk fi make the tings re-arrange

Come make we chant down Babylon and help turn the page
And don’t stop from talk fi make them know we want change
Chant down Babylon, shape the next stage
And don’t stop from talk fi make the tings re-arrange


Yah yay, want change, want change
Chant down Babylon , Yay yay, Chant down Babylon
