Product Notes

'Osama & Your SUV' and the cheery 'Talkin' Hate Radio Blues' alone prove that pop and politics can be mixed... Indieville Fight the power and support The Visitations. Protest rock rules - especially when it's this well done... Okpunkscene I've been waiting patiently for an album like this to come stumbling across my reviewing table for some time now and wondering why it has not thus far... Left Off the Dial An immediate reference point to 'Propaganda' would be what the Violent Femmes (see: Euthanize Yourself, Milk the Bull) at their most memorable (circa 'Blister in the Sun', 1983) would sound like mildly Dead Kennedy-pissed off 20 years later... Slightly Confusing To A Stranger Underneath the subject matter (which is handled with humor and insight), there is musicality and a hip beat... Skratch Magazine The acoustic guitar-led music throws pointed barbs at the American political process, but the music is so fun and upbeat it hardly seems right to call it protest music... Ink19.com It's said that a Republican administration means boom-times for political punk rock. Propaganda is an odd collection of very political songs ranging from Gang of Four-style post-punk to folky strumming to almost Capitol Steps-like political novelty songs... Punk Planet It takes a truly independent artist, Davey Wrathgabar (Elephant 6 collective) and help from members of Of Montreal, to come out with a record like this... Just Add Noise Behind the CDs red white and blue sleeve and subtly innocent-sounding acoustic pop/punk, lies one of the most cogent, focused, and entertaining attacks on the Bush Administration to come out of the Indie underground... Jersey Beat Wrathgabar & Co. (Of Montreal's Jason NeSmith and Derek Almstead) offer comfortably produced popcraft. 'Euthanize Yourself' packs a healthcare-system-slamming punch between jangly guitars and bluegrass-inflected bass lines, while 'Television''s spring reverb and driving rhythms chug merrily along. 'The Good News' and 'Be Not Afraid', the final two tracks, probably wouldn't be insulted if you called them ballads... Splendid.
