If I lived nearer I'd come and do a spot for you.
My song 'Spectral Paradise'* should be downloadable (inc. lyrics) on: Myspace/fyviesfolk.
*'Spectral Paradise' - the difference.
So many 'green' songs simply wail about what 'WE' as humanity are doing to our unique Planet Earth. 'Spectral Paradise' lays the blame for ecologiocal destruction not with us, but sqarely at the door of Capitalists. By Capitalists I mean those after 'return on Capital' regardless of floods, landslides, climate change and other social and eco destruction, in the persuit of a healthy balance sheet - the bottom line.
I'll try a blue clicky for the reference after I sign off. Hope readers have the patience to look up 'Spectral Paradise' on Myspace if it goes wrong!
