Here's The Pine Valley Cosmonauts playing their old death card and
raising a little more hell and cash to help wean America off its life
threatening death penalty dependency. On hearing Volume One,
former Illinois Governor George Ryan spontaneously cleared Death Row
and was heard to whimper, "Shit, those country commies know their
chops!!!" This leaves us little doubt that this TWO DISC SET sequel portends oblivion for the hangmen that lurk in the rest of the nation.Upon completion of Volume One
we invited more of our favorite singers and songwriters to contribute
voices and reputations and were pleasantly trampled by herds of willing
collaborators (hence the double disc). They suggested deathly ditties
unknown to us, wrote site-specific new ones or quietly bent our cruel
and unusual will. Songs of death, murder and mayhem to help drag the
dark beast to closure."Big deal," you say. "Lefty politics in
troubled times," you warn, "Remember what happened to Bill Maher and
the Dixie Chicks" you remind. "I don't care about this stuff, I might
even disagree," you scoff. "Is it good?" the music fan in you
rightfully demands.Well, friends, check out this record, and we
think you'll agree, this is one tremendous collection regardless of
where you stand in the ever so colorful political spectrum.
Contributing artists include: Tim Rutili (Califone), Dave Alvin (Blasters, Knitters), Kurt Wagner (Lambchop), Otis Clay (smoooth soul singin' legend), Sally Timms, Kelly Hogan, Rico Bell, Chris Mills, Deano (Dollar Store, Waco Brothers), English folk heroine Charlotte Greig, Alejandro Escovedo, Rebecca Gates (Spinanes), Rhett Miller (Old 97's), Rex Hobart, Edith Frost, Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), Gurf Morlix, The Meat Purveyors, English folk-rock weirdo genius Kevin Coyne, Jon Rauhouse, a classic track from The Sundowners, and much more. WOW!!!This two-CD set is bargain priced, and all artists' proceeds benefit the National Coalition Against the Death Penalty.-from Bloodshot Records
