New Recording!: "Canaries"

In 1996, I watched a multipart documentary about World War I called The Great War And The Shaping Of The 20th Century.  One of the most interesting aspects of the film was a small bit about women working in a factory building bombs getting yellow stains from the material they were working with and being nicknamed canaries as a result.  That inspired this song.  The GoGoBots played it first, and it's stayed in the set since then.  For this rerecording, I played the usual instruments, adding a toy microphone and some vocal silliness for the bomb sounds on the choruses. 

I've been sending out press releases this month for the newest releases, and Darryl Sterdan of The Tinnitist has been kind enough to include some of the songs in his playlists.  You can find "Cheekbones And Legs" here:  https://tinnitist.com/2022/04/22/weekend-mixtape-239-songs-to-help-you-celebrate-earth-day-beyond-side-2/  You can find "Rub My Arm" here:  https://tinnitist.com/2022/04/25/monday-mixtape-58-songs-to-keep-you-awake-side-1/.  I really like his playlists because they expose me to stuff I'd never stumble across otherwise.  I've already found a few artists that I've checked out further on Spotify, and I know next time I don't know what to listen to, I'm going to be checking out Darryl's playlists because I'm sure to find something cool.  Thanks, Darryl!
