SE1ers might be interested, the video for a single, entitled "You've got the Power" features Rockhingham Community Youth Centre, Rockingham Street, Elephant & Castle.

It's got quite a hook. I stumbled across it on the free music taste VMX channel our HomeChoice, but can't find much about it or a link to download or view it on the web, other than this article in early April,

Your Community Needs You
"THE UK'S HOTTEST rap stars are fronting a new nationwide campaign to get Britain's Black young people to vote."

Does anyone know if it's available to watch on the web, surely the whole point of the campaign? the link in the article is still just about the previous campaign on gun crime.

It's good to see the Aylesbury being featured yet again (Spooks, Ch4 Architecture progs...) and makes you wonder what they'll do when it has all changed - perhaps they can adapt the single to be the theme for Elephant and Castle Regeneration.

'You've got the power to make a change / You've got the power coz you control the reins / You've got the power so raise your hands / Stand up and be counted or things remain the same / You've got to keep that dream alive.' - Any ideas?

It probably needs a bit of a boast after the counciller responsible for it lost her seat. They just need to feature the underpasses as well before they start to disappear in June - hopefully.

Any thoughts, or link to the video?

As Isaid on another thread, I'm truly very sorry that Cathy Bowman has lost her seat, she was, to use an expression from a bygone age, a jolly good egg. Anything which contributes positively to the image of the Elephant Regeneration is to be embraced.
