Comment of the Moment: NEW VIDEO: 'Wolf Moon" - Neil Young and Promise of the REAL + TONIGHT: Thrasher's Wheat Radio
NEW VIDEO: 'Wolf Moon" - Neil Young and Promise of the REAL by Alan:
This is a deep and beautiful love song to Mother Earth, a statement of gratitude from one earnest, daring Artist.Thanks Alan! Love that passion. The People are leading on this cause. We shall overcome.
Neil Young, with the great talents of Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real backing him on this gorgeous track. You hafta be pretty jaded to not see the talent of Neil Young here. Yes, his voice is aging a bit. But Gracefully so. How many times have we heard a "mediocre" album and only later realized it was a true classic? This is one of those moments. 2 of Willie's boys show up in the band and help Neil tell the truth from his heart about the state of the Earth. Do you think it is insignificant and unimpressive? What he does here so impressively is to sing a beautiful song about the Earth amidst this environmental crisis.
This stuff actually MATTERS. This is the biggest threat since the Cuban Missle Crisis. The US Military readily explains that it is a national security threat. And yet these Republicans on the payroll of the Koch Brothers spout the party BS line about science being unsure. This is such a joke! These Clowns are merely Puppets of the 1%. This is the constant blundering he mentions in the song. That and the Gulf Oil Spill. And the FDA being made up of Monsanto shills. Neil cares about the planet, the poison being sprayed on our food supply, the people effected (see rising Autism rates link to pesticides and herbicides), and he sees the constant blundering of Industrial Society as humans gather at another World Summit on Climate Change and cannot walk away with any commitments or agreements. In spite of the scientific reality of Global Warming, America remains in denial about this grave threat to life here on Earth. People are so unbelievably selfish that they continue to pretend that there may not be a scientific consensus on the matter.
The People will lead on this cause. Leaving it for the next generation to deal with makes us complicit in its destruction. Meanwhile the Koch Brothers buy up newspapers so they can do like Fox News does and feed propaganda for the 1% 24/7. The ultra rich would prefer to keep white american ignorant and fed a steady diet of hateful lies about minorities, poor people, etc. . The real welfare recipients are the Corporations, most of which pay no real taxes. The middle class foots the bill to subsidize american corporations and pay more than their share of the taxes. And the Oil Company Party GOP strongly oppose clean energy like Solar. Their power has Republicans writing bills against solar or charging people money to live off the grid. Neil's album is also about how the Modern US has gone off the deep end with Citizens United, etc. This is gonna be a great album. I have heard the stuff live and it will tickle your funny bone. There is also some great music in there. Give him a chance. He usually comes through. Or should he record Harvest again. This guy has been doing Farm Aid forever.
He feels strongly and it comes through in this crucial song.
Alan in Seattle.
