‘We Will Not Forget’ is the first single to be taken Quiet Loner’s new album of contemporary protest songs ‘Greedy Magicians’. It’s a classic list song in the vein of protest songs from across the ages – simple and direct, but never simplistic, never an easy trick to pull off.
With references from the Peterloo Massacre (barely a mile from the album’s recording location in Salford) and the Tolpuddle Martyrs, to Hillsborough, the miner’s strike and the current assault on the NHS and public services, the song is a celebration and remembrance of struggle of ordinary people against the powers that be.
