We’re going Shell

The Shell Classic International season began with Orchestra Mozart at the beginning of October, and Shell Out Sounds swung into action to bring a little more nuance to the corporation’s PR campaign (with Rev Nemu singing bass).

Concert-goers taking their interval drinks in Festival Hall Bar were greeted by an upbeat chorus, snapping fingers as they sung close harmonies about the toxic legacies of Shell’s misadventures in the Arctic, the Niger Delta and Alberta.

The tune for this crisp little jingle was put together by the clever folk at Shell in the 1950s (time marked on the graph below)

We're going well!

Why not write to the South Bank and let them know how you feel about dirty oily money sponsoring the arts?
