Protestin’ in the Free World

More proof, if any were needed, of Bush’s similarities to Nixon. Neil Young has written, not a song, but AN ENTIRE ALBUM about the Bush Crime Family’s malfeasance:

SXSW Managing Director Roland Swenson, referring to Young’s indelible 1970 protest song “Ohio,” said, “Neil, we need a new song.” Young must have taken these words to heart, because he’s just finished writing and recording—out of the blue—a new album called Life in War, according to filmmaker and Young confidant Jonathan Demme, who describes it as “a brilliant electric assault on Bush and the war in Iraq.” The linchpin track, “Impeach the President,” features an edited-together Bush rap set to a 100-voice chorus chanting “flip”/”flop.” The album, with Young on Old Black, Rick Rosas on bass and Chad Cromwell on drums, took three days to finish. No word on when Reprise will release the album, but the Demme-directed concert film Heart of Gold arrives June 13 on DVD.
