Greetings Dear Listener,
We begin this installment with a letter written by Tomas Young. He is a veteran of the Iraq War which is now in its 10th year. The experiment in unbridled Friedmanism was a total failure and all of the guilty parties still breathe free air. Bullshit of the highest order I say.
Here's a link to the text of Tomas' letter:
The Last Letter
Be sure to check out the documentary Body Of War. Tomas Young is the focus of it. It is not an easy film to watch.
The Rival Schools "Found" album has started shipping from the label. It should be in my ears by the end of the week. We will certainly get into heavy doses of this one as the weeks go by.
Burn is the first track from Ready To Die that has been made available by Iggy & The Stooges. It is because of this track that I am cautiously optimistic about the album. April 30th can't get here fast enough.
OFF! has one of their shows from Australia streaming in its entirety.
Here's the link to it:
OFF! at the Annandale Hotel
The Gaslight Anthem has finally booked a show in Pittsburgh. I will be sitting on the sidewalk of the venue until June with my dancing shoes on.
How many days since Newtown has it been? And how much closer are we to getting something done? How many steps backward can we take until we forget that day?
Thanks for listening.
Until next time.
Rock over London. Rock on Chicago.
