SONGS TO SEE & HEAR, HERE:
Mergers & Acquisitions If a tree falls in the forest and one guy owns all the radio stations, and that guy doesn’t like you, will we ever know it fell on your head?
After Occupy, Tahrir, and Wisconsin comes North Carolina’s Moral Mondays campaign.
Poor Penny Pritzker
If you want to evaluate the new Secretary of Con-us, consult with the workers at her Hyatt Hotels, or the schools she ran into the ground, or the folks she foreclosed on, or…
Trayvon, You’re Livin’
(Re-recorded) As they pile on more justifications for terrorizing young black people, we pile into the streets to say if we don’t get no justice, you don’t get no peace!
Imagine Trade Agreements – Bilingual ode to those working against the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Inspired by folks in Mexico, already victimized by NAFTA – and now this.
Performed live at the White House
audio & lyrics only
You Don’t Own the World – A simple singalong sums up the state of the “sale of our state” situation.
Destroyed Nation Row – Wild Bill croons his impatience with your impatience with imperial meltdown.
Always Low Prices – Not much has changed from the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire 100 years ago to the catastrophe/mass murder in the Smart Export Garments factory in Bangladesh. They just move the most exploitative jobs around the globe. At the center, or forward edge, of this demonic regime is our old friend Wal-mart.
Get a Drone – Wild Bill has the perfect defense against civilians, casualized soldiers, immigrants, and other unforeseen byproducts of his policies.
Gaza’s Ark – The Gaza’s Ark group plans to help Gazans build a boat, ready for high seas, to help maintain boat-building skills and help break the blockade.
50 Ways To Slice the 99 – Within the 99%, differences are important. Who goes to college, work, prison; who ends up on the street? Statistics that rhyme!
The Interdigitale – Does new tech bring us together for truth and justice? Or for trivia?
Electoral Dysfunction – Addressing the angst of voting in a one and a half party system.
In the Hummertime – Burying a pink Hummer in an art park in Detroit – world’s most impossible singalong.
I’m Still A-Mergin’ Even More – Phil Ochs is roiling in his grave – but then, he always is.
Student Debt Is Rising High & Making Us Ferocious (Supercalifragi…..)
I Won’t Bloody Buy It – We boycott all the unjust companies we can find, but why do we occasionally balk?
Ghostwriters of the Law – Who writes our laws? ALEC does. American Legislative Exchange Council.
AKA the 1%. Surprise!
What the Frack?!
The good people of the petroleum industry have decided to treat the earth like the government treats the elderly and the sick: expendable.
The good people at Disney have noticed an untapped market: infants. They’re now entering maternity wards to provide baby-branding services.
