South Yorkshire band The Hurriers are releasing their debut album appropriately enough on Mayday, International Workers Day. Describing themselves as ‘a proper socialist band, like every town needs’, this storming release also drops just as the excruciating election campaign reaches its climax (or nadir, take your pick). Having been together for about two years, The Hurriers already have an impressive pedigree having played Glastonbury at the invitation of Billy Bragg, a festival with New Model Army and support slots to Sleaford Mods. The true joy of From Acorns, Mighty Oaks is that when vocalist Tony Wright sings about the strength of his community in adversity, the sentiment applies to many others around the country. This is a political album but also an intensely personal representation of a landscape that many of us will recognise and empathise with.

This extract from the opening of The Hurriers’ debut album, From Acorns Mighty Oaks, is a clear distillation of the band’s anti-Tory political stance. Describing themselves as a proper Socialist punk band, the Yorkshire-based group have managed to created a politically charged record that also demonstrates a fine ability to produce music that speaks as much volume as the lyrics.

Before oaks were mighty they were first either great, tall, sturdy or even just big. Examples of early variants of 'mighty oaks from little acorns grow' are found in Geoffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde, 1374, "as an ook cometh of a litel spyr" The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations states that 'great oaks from little acorns grow' is a 14th century proverb. Unfortunately, they don't include any details to support their view. The 'mighty' version is known, in the USA at least, from the middle of the 19th century. It appeared in A. B. Johnson's The Philosophical Emperor a Political Experiment, 1841.
