this wobble anthem on a label (Wicky Lindows) hailed by Leaving Earth reminded me of a movie I once saw on TV -- can't remember the title (perhaps an East European cinema buff can identify it) but some scenes from it have always stuck in my memory. Czech,  possibly...  made in the Nineties but set in the Fifties or early Sixties -- there's a school and this rebellious boy, who's into rock'n'roll and all things American, and at some point he manages to take over the school tannoy system ... and declaims a bunch of insurrectionary nonsense throughout the building. Including the rallying cry "LONG LIVE THE IDIOT".
