I can't get their song Shrinking Violets out of my head. Has any song raced up my iTunes 25 Most Played list so fast? Infernal melody! Opens with a sort of Phil Spector wall of sound then goes to a lovely early Replacements thing. You can listen to it here. Check out the 'fine little record label' from Seattle which released them, Hardly Art, here. (Photo nabbed from Rachie)
Newly added to the mix: the new Beastie Boys anti-Bush/war tune "In A World Gone Mad," Erykah Badu, Howard Zinn, Bob Marley, some hardcore drum & bass from Adam F., Alexander Cockburn, 3 from Louis Armstrong--"We Shall Overcome," John Lennon's "Give Peace A Chance" and "It's A Wonderful World" with a spoken word intro that addresses legitimate criticism of such a worldview, Gil Scott Heron, Public Enemy and much, much more! Plus more to come as well! Including short pieces from one of my favorite satirists: Terry Southern. I think you have to register to listen but it is free, just click off a popup if it occurs! Always feel free to write to me if you have any ideas, criticisms, etc. . . . this is, of course, still a work in progress . . . happy listenin'!
