40 years before Russell Brand... John Lennon talks revolution! The Red Mole interview, 1971 part 1



In 1970 John Lennon and Yoko Ono gave a long interview to Tariq Ali and Robin Blackburn of the International Marxist Group, which focused heavily on the development of John and Yoko's politics towards revolutionary socialism.
A transcript was published in the newspaper Red Mole but the full audio of the interview, has never before been circulated...
Socialist Resistance, is pleased to present here part one of the interview, with part 2 to follow shortly.
With thanks to Rick Hatcher who had the foresight to rescue the original cassette from a waste paper bin and keep it for 40 years!
