OUR SECOND SINGLE AND VIDEO
OUR THIRD SINGLE AND VIDEO FROM BONES IN THE ATTIC, FLOWERS IN THE BASEMENT
We are a band that believes in the intrinsic worth of every human being. Identical rights for all! Even those of us without power and/or money.
We hope you all will dig our particular brand of rock and roll. We are heavily influenced by 60s and 70s vocal/harmony driven rock and roll. We are equally influenced by 80s and 90s punk rock. As well as many other genres.
Bones in the Attic, Flowers in the Basement was our first record, released in 2017.
Cheye Calvo is our first follow up single.
There are certain facts that just do not require proving. Facts that no sane person would disagree with. Like bullying a special needs kid just because he/she is different is wrong. Initiating violence against a non-violent person is wrong. Cheating people out of their money by lying is wrong. We are all born with certain rights. Rights that just do not require proving.
It’s true that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. But the rights of the many DO NOT outweigh the rights of the few. For example, if 99% of the populous voted to illegalize being gay, that vote would not be valid, right? There are things that just aren’t up for a vote. The person you chose to love and marry is not up for a vote. Your right to decide to worship God (or not worship at all) is not up for a vote. Just because 99% vote you into slavery, that wouldn't make you a slave, right? Democracy has its limitations. Or it should have.
We believe all people are born with an identical set of these nartural born rights. The most important one is the right to be wrong. WE DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE AWAY OTHER PEOPLE’S NATURAL BORN RIGHTS! Even if we are sure they are wrong. Even if we vote to outlaw an obviously bad thing, that doesn’t automatically make it a valid vote. Precisely because we are all born with certain rights that can not be taken away from us by other people.
We believe that is exactly what the entire world is doing every day. Voting on things that no one has the right to vote on.
When men with guns storm your property and violently kidnap you just because the majority thinks something (non-violent) you are doing is bad, obviously there is something much worse going on.
Commintting violence against non-violent people is immoral. In all cases.
We as a people are addicted to forcing each other to live the ‘right’ way. That is what most elections and votes are about. We hope people will agree with us and
Most votes are violence. Most laws are just opinions with a gun.
When we vote on a law and that law goes into effect, we should know that highly armed, trained and dangerous people (law enforcement) will be going out and committing violence against anyone who disagrees.
This may be a new way of looking at things. But isn't it true? It’s none of our business what other people do, so long as they are not hurting anyone or defrauding others.
We can't violently attack those who disagree with us, even most of us.
Democracy isn’t the thing, human rights are the thing. Don’t pledge allegiance to the flag, pledge allegiance to your fellow man. Patriatism should be directed toward our fellow citizens. Not the flag and not the Government. We hope everyone will stand up for other people’s right to be wrong. Stand up against using violence in order to force others to live the 'right’ way.
BECAUSE VIOLENCE ITSELF IS THE ULTIMATE WRONG

BROTHERS AND SISTERS: THE TIME IS NOW
PLUS INTERVIEW WITH THE INSANELY INTERTAINING MR JIMMY STAR AND RON RUSSELL
We love you all and hope every one of you is safe and healthy during these troubled times. As long as 1 of every 5 tax dollars is spent on military weapons, as long as our country is the world's leading arms dealer, as long as we have hundreds of military bases in over 100 countries and territories, we will continue the struggle. For non-violent interactions. For peace.
