New Recording!: "Bomb The Bombs"

The early- to mid-1980s were filled with great peace songs such as "It's A Mistake" by Men At Work and "99 Red Balloons" by Nena, which pointed out what a disaster it is to be playing around with nuclear weapons.  The end of the cold war lessened this concern, at least in the pop world, but, unfortunately, nukes are still around, and this is probably an even more dangerous time for us where they are concerned with the U.S. and Russia playing chicken over Ukraine and China gearing up for an invasion of Taiwan.  So as much as I'd rather be singing a silly love song, you get this ditty contemplating worldwide annihilation instead.  I'm semi-surprised we haven't destroyed civilization yet, but we should get serious about peace and get rid of these damned things worldwide before we do.  Musically, it's the usual voice, guitar, keyboard as bass, and drums, but I had fun with some bleeps in the recording program.  You can hear a demo version and read the lyrics here.

Thanks to The Tinnitist for featuring "Sourheart" on a recent playlist!

For more Wred Fright music, listen to the Yeast? 7"!
