Welcome back to our weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! We aired this show on November 11, known in Canaduh as Rememberance Day, and in the U$A as Veterans Day. And while we do think it’s important to remember ALL victims of war, we refuse to buy into trumped up national militaristic celebrations to mark this day. Nope. Fuck that noise. Instead, we bring you noise of the best kind – anti-nationalist and anti-militarist tunes bumping in your speaker. Put ’em on loud as you blockade your nearest army recruitment centre and burn your favourite flag.
Our special guest on the show this week is the awesome class-conscious rock n’ roll band The Last Internationale. Hailing from NYC, they have been collaborating lately with Firebrand Records, and told us about some of the campaigns and causes that inspire their music.
Plus we got some new tunes here from Drowning Dog & Malatesta (we have an interview with them coming up soon too!), Neil Young, and The Highest Order, and classics from Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg, and Bruce “the only boss worth listening to” Springsteen.
