When my friend Margot sent me an e-mail with the subject line "Really bad music" with a link to the Sadly, No blog I just assumed that it had something to do with Prussian Blue. Both Sadly, No and I find twisted pleasure in those cute Nazi kids singing chirpy little songs about Caucasian supremacy.
But happily no, this was another example of political/musical weirdness.: Wake Up America by The Minutemen Project Band, being hawked by a group called The United American Civil Task Force. Part of the $10 you'll spend on this album -- and spend, I know you will -- go to support the UACTF and part goes to the Minutemen project.
I haven't heard it yet, so I can't honestly say whether it's truly bad music.
But judging from Sadly, No's review, it sounds like a doozy:
My personal favorites are "Boycott France," an angry anti-Gaul rap-metal ditty; "Pancho Villa Stops Here," an anti-immigrant number containing the lyrics "If you hate this country / You're gonna stop right here / We don't need your beans, we don't need your beer ..."I think it's high time someone finally took action against those undocumented carbohydrates pouring across our border.
