The Pink Slip to the Right
Political acoustic anti folk from SF’s Phil Dumesnil. Brief short tunes and short clear political messages. Extremely lo-fi aesthetics. This is a collection of 4 EPs ranging from 1998 to 2003 (see track-by-track). The first is the most politically relevant today. The second is a draft for a prison rock opera. The third consists of three covers. The last, as the sleeve says, “is 3 songs long”. Best and most relevant tracks are in the first EP. Favs: 2, 3, 6, 7 (FCC), 13, 14, 17, 21, 26. FCC:2,7,10,11,16|
