Ptooey had posted a link to a live-in-studio performance by this band about a year ago and they just happened to be playing in my area around that time so I went to see them.  Good band, excellent musicians, nice folks.  Anyhow, they are coming back to my area next month and apparently have an album due in August; I found this video on their site. - it has about a 1:00 intro.

Don't get toooo cynical.

The funny thing is that I get remarks of some people complaining how music is so empty nowadays and that there are not enough protest songs or songs with social commentary. Usually I think they aren't looking in the right places. I wouldn't expect to find a lot of such songs in mainstream pop anyway. Pop is biz. Though I have to admit I don't follow (or listen to) the current big names in pop very much.

Yea I read that article. I was referring to the comments in you tube which were very informative as well. The nuances and layers to this video are astonishing so many subtle and obvious references that may never be all sorted out. Suffice to say he covered all angles.
