Re: political music

Let England Shake, by English musician Polly Jean Harvey, is absolutely amazing! It's about war, and the effect that it has had on England, and the Western World. Here's a couple songs off it, and some parts of the lyrics.





I've seen and done things I want to forget
I've seen soldiers fall like lumps of meat
blown and shot out beyond belief
arms and legs were in the trees
I've seen and done things I want to forget
coming from an unearthly place
longing to see a woman's face
instead of the words that gathered pace
the words that maketh murder
these these these are the words
...









How is our glorious country plowed?
not by iron plows
how is our glorious country plowed?
not by iron plows
our land is plowed by tanks and feet
feet marching
our land is plowed by tanks and feet
feet marching
oh America!
oh England!
...






We got up early and washed our faces
walked the fields and put up crosses
passed through the damned mountains
went hell-wards, and some of us returned, and some of us did not
in the fields and in the forests
under the moon and under the sun
another summer has passed before us
and not one man has, and not one woman has
revealed the secrets of this world

so our young men
hit with guns
in the dirt
and in the dark places
....

If we hang the landlord from the top of the stairs,
We can live here forever without a care,
So let’s hang the landlord from the top of the stairs,
And we’ll live like a millionaire,

Re: political music



If only Sham 69 had of united the kids,

If only the 4 Skins had told us ACAB,
If only The Ramones had let us know we were a happy family,
If only The Buzzcocks had shown us how to do it ourself,
If only Crass had shown us there are things more important than wealth,
If only The Vandals had shown us it was OK to smile,
If only The Dead Kennedys had helped us put our government on trial,
If only Rancid had played live, and brought with them that vibe,
If we had Sick Of It All and Madball we could put them all on the frontline,

If we had GG Allin we’d have learned it’s OK to be hated,
If we’d have had The Refused then we could have innovated,
If we’d had Poison Idea then they couldn’t push us over,
If we’d had Minor Threat then we could have done it sober,
If we’d have had Against Me we could have done it all unplugged,
If we’d had Operation Ivy we could have done it then ****ed off,
If we had The Blitz, The Clash, Disorder, Propagandhi,
The Exploited, NOFX and anyone that’s handy,

Rancid did play live. I saw them. A friend (husband of a friend of my wife's but sort of a friend) played with them (not as a band member, but hired musician). Seemed to me like they had that vibe.

It still blows my mind that the movie got made and that it was prescient.

Re: political music

That Drive-By Truckers song is quality. Kind of hate the Chaplin mix. His delivery of that speech doesn't need tampering with by farting about on auto-tune.



How bad did Iggy's bank balance end up before he went from this to insurance adverts?

It was made because he was rich enough to make it. His reward, aside from money, was a smear campaign by the FBI and charges for violating the Mann Act which could have resulted in 23 years in prison. It wasn't brought to trial for lack of evidence. And the next time he left the United States his re-entry permit was revoked and he didn't come back the US for 20 years.
