      Gil Scott-Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

      Gill Scott Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

      At 49, Gil Scott-Heron stands as a towering figure of black popular music. With a masters in creative writing from Johns Hopkins, the writer, poet, composer, pianist, and modern-day griot is a true artist in an industry lacking true artistry.

      Scott-Heron emerged in the early 1970s with albums such as What’s Going On and There’s A Riot Goin’ On. By 1970, there was a profound shift in the struggle for equality as the fight for civil rights gave way to the demand for Black Power. The Civil Rights Movement had lost its focus, being ripped apart by differing interest groups and ignored by a wartime US government. The voices of its leaders were silenced by jail or bullets.

      Black popular music reflected this change. The voices on the radio stopped preaching brotherhood and togetherness and started reporting the facts, and the music got more aggressive. Leading the new attack was a new voice: articulate, uncompromising, and enraged. The voice held the light up to the country’s missteps and shook up an apathetic audience. The voice was Gil Scott-Heron’s. Scott-Heron was born in Chicago in 1949. He grew up in Lincoln, Tennessee and later the Chelsea neighborhood of the Bronx.

      As a student, he admired the poetry of Langston Hughes and followed his footsteps by enrolling in Lincoln University. By age 20, he completed the novel The Vulture and the book of poetry, Small Talk At 125th & Lenox. The Vulture was an auspicious beginning, heralded by Essence as "a strong start for a writer with important things to say." In the 1970’s, Scott-Heron hooked up with Flying Dutchman records to produce several important albums including Pieces of Man and Free Will.

      During the 1980s, for Arista label, Scott-Heron released twelve albums. Then, after a twelve-year break, he signed with TVT Records and released Spirits in 1993. The first cut of this album, "Message To The Messenger," is a warning to today’s rappers, urging them to take responsibility in their art and in their communities. Since then, he has played to sell-out crowds all over the world, performing at major festivals in England and the United States, including New York’s Central Park.

      The revolution will no be televised
      You will not be able to stay home, brother.
      You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
      You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
      Skip out for beer during commercials,
      Because the revolution will not be televised.

      The revolution will not be televised.
      The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
      In 4 parts without commercial interruptions.
      The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon
      blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John
      Mitchell, General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat
      hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary.

      The revolution will not be televised.
      The revolution will not be brought to you by the
      Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie
      Woods and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia.
      The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal.
      The revolution will not get rid of the nubs.
      The revolution will not make you look five pounds
      thinner, because the revolution will not be televised, Brother.

      There will be no pictures of you and Willie May
      pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run,
      or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance.
      NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32
      or report from 29 districts.
      The revolution will not be televised.

      There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
      brothers in the instant replay.

      There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy
      Wilkens strolling through Watts in a Red, Black and
      Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
      For just the proper occasion.

      Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville
      Junction will no longer be so damned relevant, and
      women will not care if Dick finally gets down with
      Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people
      will be in the street looking for a brighter day.
      The revolution will not be televised.

      There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock
      news and no pictures of hairy armed women
      liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose.
      The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb,
      Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom
      Jones, Johnny Cash, Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth.
      The revolution will not be televised.

      The revolution will not be right back
      after a message about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
      You will not have to worry about a dove in your
      bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl.
      The revolution will not go better with Coke.
      The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
      The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.

      The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
      will not be televised, will not be televised.
      The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
      The revolution will be live.

      Gil-Scott Heron Biography


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      Scott-Heron was born in Chicago but spent his early childhood in Tennessee, then moving to the Bronx for most of his high school career. After spending a year in college at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, he released his first novel, The Vulture, which was very well-received.

      He began recording in 1970 with the LP Small Talk at 125th & Lennox with the assistance of Bob Thiele, co-writer Brian Jackson, Hubert Laws, Bernard Purdie, Charlie Saunders, Eddie Knowles, Ron Carter and Bert Jones, all jazz musicians (see 1970 in music). The album included the aggressive diatribe against his perception of the white-owned corporate media and middle-class America's ignorance of the problems of inner cities in songs such as Whitey On The Moon[2] (http://gilscottheron.free.fr/songs/w...the_moon.html).

      The 1971 Pieces of a Man used more conventional song structures than the loose, spoken word feel of his first, though he didn't reach the charts until 1975 with "Johannesburg"[3] (http://gilscottheron.free.fr/songs/johannesburg.html). His biggest hit was 1978's "The Bottle"[4] (http://gilscottheron.free.fr/songs/the_bottle.html), produced by Heron and longtime partner Brian Jackson, which peaked at #15 on the R&B charts (see 1978 in music).

      During the 1980s, Scott-Heron continued recording, frequently attacking then-President Ronald Reagan and his conservative policies:

      "The idea concerns the fact that this country wants nostalgia. They want to go back as far as they can – even if it’s only as far as last week. Not to face now or tomorrow, but to face backwards. And yesterday was the day of our cinema heroes riding to the rescue at the last possible moment. The day of the man in the white hat or the man on the white horse - or the man who always came to save America at the last moment – someone always came to save America at the last moment – especially in “B” movies. And when America found itself having a hard time facing the future, they looked for people like John Wayne. But since John Wayne was no longer available, they settled for Ronald Reagan – and it has placed us in a situation that we can only look at – like a B movie" (Gil Scott-Heron, "B" Movie)

      Scott-Heron was dropped by Arista in 1985 (see 1985 in music), and quit recording, though he continued to tour. In 1993, he signed to TVT Records and released Spirits and album that included the seminal track Message To The Messengers[5] (http://sbacari.tripod.com/poetry/msgtomsgrs.htm). The first track on the album was a position point poem to the rap artist of the day and included such comments as:

      * "Four letter words or fours syllable words won't make you a poet, It will only magnify how shallow you are and let ev'rybody know it."
      * "Tell all them gun-totin' young brothers that the 'man' is glad to see us out there killin' one another! We raised too much hell, when they was shootin' us down."
      * "Young rappers, one more suggestion, before I get outta your way. I appreciate the respect you give to me and what you've got to say."

      The poem was a recognotion of Scott-Heron status as a founding father of rap and a plea for the new rappers to speak for change rather than perpetuate the current social situation, to be more articulate and artistic:

      "There's a big difference between putting words over some music, and blending those same words into the music. There's not a lot of humour. They use a lot of slang and colloquialisms, and you don't really see inside the person. Instead, you just get a lot of posturing"

      In 2001, Gil Scott-Heron was incarcerated for drug and/or domestic abuse offenses. Apparently, the death of his mother and funeral expenses coupled with crack cocaine led to a downward spiral. While out of jail in 2002, Gil Scott-Heron recorded with and appeared on the Blackalicious album, "Blazing Arrow."

      His father, Gil Heron, was a soccer player for the Scottish club Celtic F.C. in the 1950s. Celtic F.C. was at this time the football team of Scotlands Irish catholic immigrants. Many of the songs of Celtic F.C relate the lives of an oppressed ethnic group in much the same way as Gil Scott Heron later chronicled the similar struggle of Black Americans.

      Big ups Akyeame fyi when u breeze this way again, one who played with Gil still does "healing" sounds at Lush Life; his name now is Bilal Sunni Ali and a member of this collective. U'd have to know it; he seldom mentions it himself. I hope he doesn't mind me do n it.

      Lush Life is near Mutana's.

      Asante sana yungBlood!

      Hey, Y'all. How goes everything?

      You are talking about GILL SCOTT HERRON! I LOVE HIM!!!! In elementary school, I ain't wanna hear nuttin' bout no "green eggs n' ham"; I wanted to hear my man G.S.Herron spit,"A RAT done bit my sister Nell... but Whitey's on 'da moon. Her face and arms began to swell... but Whitey's on 'da moon!" lol I did one of his poems at a PTA meeting in 6th grade, too! LOLOLOL I can still see the looks on some of the caucasion teachers' faces! lololol Lodey!

      But anyway, yes, the ledge is often so narrow and some of our most skilled wordsmiths/artists/story keepers/bone people have gotten caught up like that. Even makes me think of Dennis Brown. Dang.

      Babaloo, I'mma raid yo' record collection, too. Don't worry though, I'd never ask for your originals, but I WILL bug you to make me some copies. (I know you got nuff Bobbi Humphrey & Curtis Mayfield, too.)

Her face and arms began to swell... but Whitey's on 'da moon!" lol I did one of his poems at a PTA meeting in 6th grade, too! LOLOLOL I can still see the looks on some of the caucasion teachers' faces! lololol Lodey!

      But anyway, yes, the ledge is often so narrow and some of our most skilled wordsmiths/artists/story keepers/bone people have gotten caught up like that. Even makes me think of Dennis Brown. Dang.

      Babaloo, I'mma raid yo' record collection, too. Don't worry though, I'd never ask for your originals, but I WILL bug you to make me some copies. (I know you got nuff Bobbi Humphrey & Curtis Mayfield, too.)

      And nahhh, Bro Akeyame... The warrior in me existed even before birth. LOL Forreal!@hearing little black children in handcuffs in style these days. Yanno.

      Babaloo, I gotta get a copy of that! You remember that old jazz tune "Get it together"? (The same ones who put out the real souled up ABC song) You have that? That's messed up about the records still. But you know when you make it out here, my popz got all kinds a stuff, too.

      Cool u b til da fat lady sings da bleuz 'n then 'n then the next step in your trio's granite set path... your generation's producing piercing lights for during these euro whitenesses y'all's most needed and its happening from other perspectives too.... recently students at Benjamin Mays initiated organizing high school Afrikan students state wide to have Afrikan studies in their programs. Continuing what Nana Baffour et al pushed for in the '90s; yesterday Black students at Tri-Cities High School walked out; a parent I heard say: they want Afrikan studies included... In one sense its a drag that 40 years ago students were raising the roofs 'bout a very similar reason.

      Nana Baffour himself is now saying it'll never happen in the public school settings; i.e., that our children'll be taught properly. So u see that part of your crews aim, I hope, is to continue the "home" school establishings. Many of us know and have been know'n that... but lacked qualified teachers. Or when established was price prohibiting.

      Don't want nobody crying "thread corruption," so get this: music programs too are b n either underfunded or nonfunded now.

      BTW J. told me y'all created that smoothie. I've had it...
