Gil Scott Heron knew a thing or two about nuclear disasters

“We nearly lost  Detroit”  – Not one of Gil Scott Heron’s most popular tracks – not poetry, not jazz ,not not floating flute solos but full of some wise words about the environmental and social effects of putting  nuclear power stations near to  large cities.

Wonder what he thought about the Fukushima meltdown when he had written this track over 30 years earlier.

Now, how far away is Oldbury power station from Bristol ….um, not that far. I wonder if Homer would like the view from the River Severn?
