No sell Out - "Malcolm X & Keith LeBlanc" - Play this track here.
I read the autobiography of Malcolm X in the late 1980's. It was a very moving book for me. One of a man coming out of criminality to lead his people, then to be betrayed by his peers.
Malcolm X (May 19th 1925 – February 21st 1965), was born Malcolm Little and also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. He was an African-American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist. He was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans. His detractors in his age of inequality accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, antisemitism, and violence. He has been described as one of the greatest, and most influential, African Americans in history.
Keith LeBlanc started out as a session drummer with Sugarhill Records, early 1980's. He formed the Sugar Hill House Band with fellow Americans Doug Wimbish (bass) and Skip "Little Axe" McDonald (guitar), working with leading rap artists as The Sugarhill Gang (Rapper's Delight) and Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel on The Message and Freedom.
From his own 'Malcolm X No Sell Out', the first ever sampling record, on Tommy Boy Records (1983) to his involvement in creating the sound of funk noise giants Tackhead with Wimbish, McDonald and British dub producer Adrian Sherwood, he has gained recognition as one of the top and most innovative drummers/programmers around.

Tesco plc is a British international grocery and general merchandising retail chain headquartered in the Tesco House in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. It is the UK's largest supermarket chain.
The chain was founded by Jack Cohen in 1919. The brand first appeared after Cohen bought a shipment of tea from T.E. Stockwell and he used those initials and added the first two letters of his own surname. The first Tesco store was opened in 1929 in Burnt Oak, Edgware, Middlesex.
During the 1950s and the 1960s Tesco grew organically, and also through acquisitions, until it owned more than 800 stores. Originally specialising in food and drink, it has diversified into areas such as clothing, electronics, financial services, telecoms, home, health, car and dental insurance, retailing and renting DVDs, CDs, music downloads, Internet services and software. It is the largest British retailer by both global sales and domestic market share, with profits exceeding £3 billion, and the third largest global retailer based on revenue, after Wal-Mart and Carrefour and second largest in profit behind Wal-Mart.
Tesco's UK stores are divided into six formats, differentiated by size and the range of products sold. Tesco Extra stores are larger, mainly out-of-town hypermarkets that stock nearly all of Tesco's product ranges. Exceptions include Hexham Extra, Kingston upon Hull Extra, Stevenage Extra, Wigan Extra, Grimsby Extra, Galashiels Extra, Slough Extra, Eastbourne Extra, Yeovil Extra and Burnley Extra, which are in the heart of the town centre and Cardiff Western Avenue Extra, Cardiff Pengam Green Extra and the one pictured here as a panorama, Warrington Extra are located in the inner-city) that stock nearly all of Tesco's product ranges.
Tesco Express stores are neighbourhood convenience shops, stocking mainly food with an emphasis on higher-margin products (due to small store size, and the necessity to maximise revenue per square foot) alongside everyday essentials. They are found in busy city centre districts, small shopping precincts in residential areas, small towns and on Esso petrol station forecourts. In Warrington alone no-one is more than 3 miles away from a Tesco.
I have a Tesco clubcard and the intelligence collected about my purchases, where they are made and how often is total. Such that at Christmas I generally get opening hours of the filling station in Scotland nearest to where I spend the festive season with my club card statement. Despite the fact that is the only time I generally fill up there. When George Orwell wrote about 1984 I think he had authority not supermarkets in mind.
