The Young'uns - When Our Grandfathers Said No

Taken from their 2012 album ‘When Our Grandfathers Said No’, The Battle of Stockton Town by The Young’uns is our track of the week.

When Our Grandfathers Said No is a line from The Battle of Stockton, recalling an incident in 1933 when Oswald Mosely’s Blackshirts targeted deprived areas as potential fascist hotbeds and marched over the Tees – to be physically repelled by 2,000 outraged Stockton townsfolk.

When Our Grandfathers Said No is available now from Propermusic, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and all good music stores.
