Justin Shane : Toronto G20 and a new song

Publié le par Music'N'Punk

Justin Sane spent the weekend in Toronto at the G20 demonstrations as well as performing solo acoustic sets at the premiere of the feature length documentary, "Sounds Like A Revolution", in which he and Anti-Flag appear. His weekend inspired a new song which you can find here.

 

Justin  Shane : I re­cor­ded the fol­lo­wing vi­deo clip af­ter ar­ri­ving back home in Pitts­burgh, Penn­syl­va­nia late in the eve­ning.  I was ex­haus­ted so it’s a lit­tle rough around the edges but I wan­ted to post it as is be­cause the emo­tion of the wee­kend was still buz­zing wi­thin me and re­cor­ding and post­ing un­der such cir­cum­stances was exact­ly the right thing to do.

 

The film most­ly fo­cuses on the mo­ve­ment of ac­ti­vist mu­si­cians who rose up to speak against and re­sist the cor­rup­tion and cri­mi­nal ac­tions that was the George W. Bush re­gime.  It is the ac­tions of those people and the do­cu­men­ta­rians (Sum­mer and Jane) who made this film who tru­ly ins­pi­red this song.  As I wat­ched the mo­vie I was al­so re­min­ded of the short sigh­ted ba­ck­ward ad­ver­sa­ry which we fa­ced such as “war all the time John Mc­Cain” and “drill ba­by drill Sa­rah Pa­lin” and why it is im­por­tant to conti­nue to stand to­ge­ther to di­rect our world in a sa­fer, more com­pas­sio­nate, more hu­mane path, and op­pose the sel­fish, cor­rupt, cor­po­rate state which the an­ti pro­gres­sives of this world would have us live in.
