The songs tell the story of the 1984-85 Miner’s Strike through the eyes of the men and women of Stainforth and Dunscroft, South Yorkshire - The Hatfield Brigade.
Joe says:“They could not have been written without the help and support of the community and thanks must go to everyone down there for telling it like it is. Special thanks to Mick Lanaghan, Will Moore, Tony Clegg, Les Moore, Carol Mccardle, Harry Harle, Neil Nij Hughes, Pat Dignan, Sheena Moore and Dave Douglass for stories and speeches, loans of archive footage and documentaries, phone calls and email threads, and most of all for their comradeship and inspiration.”
The album is dedicated to all striking miners and their families who gave up so much for so long and deserved better.
