I live in a music town. You can’t walk down the street at night without hearing the sound of a band coming from every bar. Last night, the music I heard while walking by one venue, its stage open to the night, people listening in the garden, sitting out under the stars, made me stop and listen, and then buy a drink and sit down.
Meet The Skipperdees. They introduced their song “Atomic City” as a protest song. I didn’t think people wrote those anymore. (You can read the lyrics here.) It’s about their hometown which, if I understand correctly, used to be a mining town and now has a factory where they make atomic bombs. They are super talented, and this song is incredible.
’cause here Fat Men and Little Boys
are bread and butter, our pride and joy
Also, be sure to sit outside at night while you still can. Soon it will be cold.
