Hello Dear Readers – Due to a dysfunctional, inefficient work environment that is constantly breaking down (which is causing me to put in way too many hours than I care to work in one week!), the further work and almost completion of our new room, and a general feeling of exhaustion, I have not had much time lately to do any quality writing. So I am going to interrupt our regularly scheduled program for a bit of a musical holiday! What follows are some great songs that have lent inspiration to me over the years, Enjoy!!
This is William Elliot Whitmore, an American farmer and kick-ass singer, songwriter! As far as I am concerned this is some of the most Punk Rock music I have ever heard. There is plenty more of his music to check out, so check it out and support his work!
Now for some real Punk Rock! The Descendents are a classic American punk rock band from California. This song is probably the best history lesson in song form that one could listen to – listen and learn!!
Israel “IZ” Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole was a Hawaiian singer and independence activist. If this song doesn’t make you cry tears of joy and give you hope for the future, I don’t know what will!
The great Manu Chao! Por el suelo, or roughly, For the Soil, is one of my all time favorite songs! A song for the Earth and those who care for it!
Gogol Bordello – No Human Being is Illegal!!
And one late entry …. The Swingin’ Utters’ Last Chance
