John Major and Tony Benn team up for album

Ex-Prime Minister and socialist legend both sampled for new record

Samples of John Major and Tony Benn are among 100 clips of powerful people saying ‘yes’ on a new concept album.

‘There’s Me and There’s You’ is a record by Matthew Herbert, who has remixed tracks for Moloko and R.E.M and produced Róisín Murphy’s 2005 debut solo album ‘Ruby Blue’.

The artist used sounds and speech he recorded in McDonalds, the British Museum and the Houses of Parliament.

Herbert told AFP: “The album was supposed to be about institutions. I was going to make it at Tesco but I thought if I’m going to make a political record then it should be made at the Houses of Parliament.”
