Welcome Joe!  :hello: Always nice to welcome a fellow freedom musician to the board. Loved your song, is it self produced or did you record in a studio? Either way, it's very good. What instruments do you play?

Thanks! It's self-produced and I played all the instruments (guitars, bass, drums, and vocals.)

 I should mention that the video contains pages from my "graphic poem": A SHOW OF HANDS: A CAUTIONARY TALE OF HEROES IN EXILE. It's based on the politics of the Marvel Universe of comic books, from the p.o.v of Captain America, a witness to generations of the erosion of Liberty. It's also a set-up of sorts to the society depicted in Ayn Rand's ANTHEM. The link to the pdf is below. I created this for activism purposes, so if anyone wants to use it for that, feel free to print or share.

It also is meant to be a "throwing down of the gauntlet," a message that heroes are not meant to be sacrificed, whether politically, artistically, economically, or socially.

While not the sort of thing I'd normally go for,  I can see where this would speak to some folks.   :-)

Bob Marley anybody?


I just listened to Kansas "Carry on my Wayward Son" for the first time in years, it kinda blew me away, and it had a "matrix" type theme to it
Also Supertramp "Breakfast in America"

Lovely thread, I'm definitely going to get some of those I've not previously heard of.  No, nothing more to say.  This is just to complete my purgatory assignment so I can ask about a TANJ damned radio.

from the oIrish: Black and Tans, The Fields of Athenry, plenty more listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_rebel_music

a bit newer -
Tin Soldiers
Little Boxes
Eve of Destuction

I'll probably list more recently made stuff (System of a Down comes to mind immediately, as well as some of Metallica's stuff (Master of Puppets and esp. And Justice for All) but there is plenty more)

My Friend Drew Landry plays some somewhat subversive songs as well. He's a folksy sort of musician I hope to get a chance to work with one of these days.

G'Day All

Whoa what a new/old idea you have brought to mind Kirsten. Are you old enough to remember the incredibly prolific output of freedom/protest songs from the 60's and 70's song writers and performers? Some of the people I remember are

Bob Dylan
Phil Ochs
Joan Baez
Buffy St. Marie
Tom Paxton
Simon and Garfunkel
Tom Leher
Jimi Hendrix

and so many more I mis-remember right know. The point being all were highly politicised, yes many from the so-called left of the political spectrum. However this does not detract from their primary concern, which was FREEDOM for every boy and girl, FREEDOM for you and me!

Some songs that resonate with me still are from the inimetable Bob Dylan

Blowin' In The Wind
A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall
Masters of War
The Times They Are a Changin'
Subterranean Homesick Blues
Dylan was of course from the so-called poetic school where he created myth, and poetry from which created his songs. Many of us at the time believed Dylan should be the Poet Laurate of the US.

Another singer, song writer I remember is a guy by the name of Phil Ochs, a journalist who wrote songs about our, then immediate realities we faced during those times. I still remember his signature release titled "All The News That's Fit To Sing" with such great songs as

Is There Anybody There
I Ain't Marchin' Anymore
There But For Fortune
Draft Dodger Rag
Power and Glory

Damn, as I type this tunes and singer/songwriters are swirling through my mind so fast I can't grasp them fast enough to get them all down.

During those times songs and music were indeed percieved as subversive by the mainstream media and TPTB as well as a majority of parents and Grand-Parents. They all thought the world was going to hell in a hand basket  :laugh: and all who loved the music were seriously deranged, in fact they believed we all should be medicated for our own good. :rolleyes: What they failed to understand at the beginning of all this "agitatin'" was the simple fact we were already medicated into an alternative reality, you see we believed we could "Change the World" and that concept scared the shit out of all the conservative/Liberal goons. Just to damn much FREEDOM going on!

Last song I will mention is from Jimi Hendrix, which I consider the ultimate freedom/protest song. I know many here will remember, those who were in Nam, sitting in a Hooch, smokeing a "dubbie" and a beer in hand would sing along to "All Along The Watchtower" and wonder what the fuck we were doing in that crazy place of death and destruction.

So let's do it, create a streaming audio/tape recorder or whatever to have freedon/protest songs on the boards as a freebie for all to listen too as we and our guests mull the ways to promote and achieve FREEDOM in our life times.

Regards,

Americus

Yep,  remember these artists well. I still have all my albums.  I liked "Ian & Sylvia," non-political.
" Richard & Mimi Farina," very political.
"Buffy Saint- Marie," speaks for American Indians.

Have a Martin guitar, a few dulcimers, an Oscar Schmitt Autoharp  and a "mouth bow." Yep, an ol' folkie... Even have my "AR turntable," anybody remember those??

Walkin thru the devils lair, breathin the devils air, drinkin his sweat, eatin his swine
They gonna try and take your soul, but they damn sure aint taken mine!

What did they do with the aborted baby fetus?
Did they use it to feed us?
Put it in the skin cream,  or was that a bad dream?

Its in how the schools have no windows and look like a prison,  and all the superficial egos wt no vision

Its in how I look at my phone in moments of insecurity,  regroup gather yourself and begin to think clearly,  checkin your phone relentlessly is spiritual suicide tremendously

Its in the debt based currency, sorcery, usery, witchcraft, something demonic by nature, something I have hate for!  Be an individual, the divinity of the god within for that be grateful.  Its funny all of these years I haven't seen any pyramids here except for the one in Las Vegas,  why did they put the Luxor on the dollar bill anyway?

Welcome Home Maz, Youll find it nice here. We all love our freedom so be of good cheer.

Dont care where youre from or which way you swing, What color you are or religion you bring.

Dont aggress against others, thats our main point. Weve got lots to share, its an interesting joint.

Old threads are extensive in what you can learn, feel free to input. We all take a turn.

Some are quite rowdy, some have passed on, and some are quite mellow and break into song.

Regardless of who or where you have been, well try and be helpful and make you fit in.

FREEDOM!
