Red Wedge is the self-described “broad Left arts alliance” of pop stars and young people whose specific goal is a Labour Party victory in the U.K.’s next General Election. Formed in late ’85 to implement slogans such as The World of Arts—For a World of Difference, the Wedge boasts a suprising range of supporters, including Sade, Paul Weller, Bragg, Jerry Dammers, Lloyd Cole, Bananarama, Ray Davies, Heaven 17, Junior Giscombe, Jimmy Somerville, Helen Terry and Dave Stewart—plus groups like Everything But The Girl and Working Week.
