I’m No Rebel – View From A Hill

Standard

View From A Hill released “I’m No Rebel” in 1987, the year of my ‘O’ Levels, during which I spent many an evening holed up in my bedroom, revising into the early hours. There was always music playing, and the later it got, the more soulful it became. For me, the story “I’m No Rebel” tells evokes imagery reminiscent of that created by S. E. Hinton in her book “The Outsiders”, when Dallas Winston (played in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 film of the book by Matt Dillon) is fatally wounded. Both the book and the film, which boasted a stellar cast, including Patrick Swayze, Tom Cruise, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Leif Garrett and Diane Lane, were hugely influential upon my young, teenage self. Although this track is entirely unrelated to either, it will in my head always be inextricably linked to both.

    This is not a song of theirs I’m familiar with, but I do recall No Conversation (Let Me Be Close) from 1986, which Peter Powell chose as one of his all time favourite records on his final show on Radio 1, broadcast on Sunday 25 September 1988.
