I’m all about consciousness raising while being entertained. And the Fiery Furnaces are doing just that. According to the band’s MySpace page, the brother-sister due will be preaching to their crowds in support of President Obama’s health care reforms. They are also encouraging other bands to follow suit. Way to go dudes. I say there is more of this needed in all forms of entertainment, especially considering the crappy and utterly shitty stuff we’re fed on TV these days. (Not including Mad Men, of course).
Sure, we can disagree on the details. But Patriotic American Rock-n-Roll Fans must surely agree that our nation is in desperate need of health care reform.
