RY COODER’S PULL UP SOME DUST AND SIT DOWN – SIMPLE TOOLS FOR CITIZENS UNDER SIEGE!
There’s you, the citizen, running in circles like a headless chicken. And there they are, there they all are, herding you faster and faster through the circle maze of lies and distraction. Who can you believe, who will throw out the life line?
You need simple tools, and that’s what these songs are all about. Learn how John Lee Hooker will fix the supreme court if elected. Learn a stirring new war-without-end Christmas sing along. Study the report on the new-time Jim Crow heaven bill #1070. What does the outlaw Jesse James have in mind for Goldman Sachs? Why does God hate television? And there’s more…
Every song a revelation, a beacon of light in the endless tunnel of modern life, and it can be yours starting on September 9.
