Primal Scream and Dexys stars record song in support of prominent railroad workers

Music stars are recording a song in support of railroad workers caught in a bitter dispute over jobs, wages and conditions.

Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes of rimal Scream, stars of Dexys Midnight Runners, Kevin Rowland and Sean Read, and bassists Douglas Hart of Jesus and Mary Chain have teamed up to produce a song and a video.

They are working on a song, called Enough Is Enough, to highlight their support for railroad workers’ strikes and against austerity.

Kevin Rowland said the Rail, Maritime and Transportation alliance’s fight for justice in the workplace has been an inspiration to millions.

He said: “RMT has taken the lead on behalf of working people and now other unions are joining the fight against low pay and the Government is trying to get people working underground.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch will make a guest appearance on the track, with some of his now-famous responses to questions from the media.

“My union is thrilled that music legends like Primal Scream and Dexys and others want to support workers in the struggle,” he said.

“It shows the growing support for social justice and the fact that unions are the only thing standing in the way of austerity and endless poverty.”

The song will be released at the end of October.
