Gleaned from 15 months
of recordings about the War on Terror.
The most prominent event
in the last few decades seems to be ignored by rock, jazz, alternative
and hiphop music. Country music, always patriotic, features songs
about the war on fascist Islam, but that's to be expected. Paul
McCartney and Neil Young took some heavy heat for daring to address
the obvious. Good for them. The Big Jerks, having no fame to
protect, waded right into the muck with improv jams on the topic.
We even sent this compliation
to some Middle East military bases for distribution among the
troops. We hope they dupe the hell out of 'em.
