I know who my LEAST favorite Vegan musician is.
« on: August 10, 2008, 07:38:40 PM »
Hey, haven't looked at the board in a while because I went out of town earlier this year, and became consistently six episodes behind, and you know, spoilers.

Anyway, I just spent two days at a really spotty DIY/Anti-Folk (whatever) music festival and vegan potluck. I'm not vegan but I got it together to bring a few actual hot dishes and desserts, was really disappointed when it turned out to be mostly garbage bags of soggy dumpster bagels, and a tub of grapes. If you can't cook I don't want to be part of your revolution.

Anyway, I digress. I have a new entry for worst song ever, in the sub-category of protest songs. I heard it live, and it's been haunting me to the point I was driven back to the FOT forums, where I hoped it could be the subject of some cathartic shredding.

Hear "No Revolution" at http://www.myspace.com/dustinandthefurniture, or download it directly here: http://kibblesmith.com/personal/Dustin%20and%20The%20Furniture%20-%20No%20Revolution.mp3

Thanks in advance for letting me return in a blaze of arbitrary negativity.

Is there a better way to return to anything?
I think not.

Also, here is a general summary of the faces I made when reading this guy's myspace page:

Quote
lightheartedly wistful folk tunes
:-\
Quote
about crushes and traveling and going outside;
:-[
Quote
anarcho-primitivist folk-punk songs
>:(
Quote
about the problems (and collapse) of civilization.

Damn STRAIGHT!

I'm not positive, but I think that I might have crossed paths with this dude at an anarchist co-op house--when I stayed there a few years ago in Cambridge, Mass. There was a guy with a guitar there who sounded suspiciously like this fellow. Then again, there are probably lots of people who sound like that.

 That's the problem with protest songs--it's very easy to write a shitty one. And who is this guy to tell me there's no revolution in driving around happy? I can't be happy in the car now?

I just feel uncomfortable when people play songs like this at rallies and the like. I remember being at a rally in Tompkins Square Park 5 or 6 years ago, and there was some guy doing an absolutely awful acoustic cover of "Anarchy in The U.K."

 It's hard to think about the revolution when you're squirming in embarrassment for someone.

These kids were all for it. Mostly high schoolers. I wish that had been on the flier somehow.

"Mostly High Schoolers."

Gosh. Gonna keep on not picturing that, but good to know it could always be worse.

to be fair his influences are pretty representative of the contemporary proletariat:

gathering wild berries, birds, friends, deer, moments, real food, bodies of water, floating on boats, trees, the sky

Erm, sounds like he's trying to describe neofolk here.  Wonder if he's even aware of that genre.

When I see things like this: "help?!?!?!?!??!"
instead of an actual location for a tour date, I think
"No.  You should give up instead."

It's the pre-internet rocker in me.
