In the mid 2010s, there existed an uneasy peace between Britain's Twitter-using centre-left and elements of the hard left and centre right. One of the era's quintessential venues for comrades of different political affiliations, but perhaps similar social and professional milieus, to find common ground was RUTH AND MARTIN'S (RAM) ALBUM CLUB, a tumblr blog in which a hand-picked selection of individuals drawn primarily from the worlds of light entertainment and political journalism would take it in turns to review an album they'd never heard before. In this exclusive RP investigation, RP crew affiliate and producer of smoking beats tom disso (@nailheadparty) joins Jack and Geraint to peek inside this capsule of a whole other time. We choose to focus on four reviews in particular, each of which are in their own way quintessentially RAM: Tim Farron on NWA's STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, Matt Forde on David Bowie's HUNKY DORY, David Aaronovitch on the Wu-Tang Clan's ENTER THE WU-TANG: 36 CHAMBERS and, finally, Tom Watson on Bob Dylan's SLOW TRAIN COMING. To hear the next instalment of the RP RAM Album Club Club, in which we focus on Chris Addison's truly shocking review of Marvin Gaye's WHAT'S GOING ON, and Euan McColm's equally repellent take on Joni Mitchell's BLUE, subscribe over at patreon.com/reelpolitik
