Somebody should write a song about Saint Emma.

Her associate, Leon Czolgosz was indicated in
the McKinley ballad and may have been mentioned in a verse here and there.

"McKinley, he cried, McKinley he squalled,
The doctor said, "McKinley, I can't find that pistol ball"
From Washington to Buffalo

here's richard bridges with another ignorant and uneducated posting. only right wingers think anarchists don't have rules. they don't have coercive relationships, but lots of rules if you have evr been a member of a collective,

as to songs, try the little red song book by the iww. they have many editions but republished every song ever in the bookma few years back.

anything by utah phillips

the canadian band sabotabby wereagreat anarchist group.

any oof the grreat union organizer joe hills songs.

and in europe there is a whole other tradition with songs in many langusges.

the little red song book is the easiest to find

There's a new album of anarchist folk songs called Spades, Hoes & Ploughs just been released by the Welsh folksong singer David Wrench. I only heard one song on the radio, Blackleg Miner, but it sounded very interesting. I'd say it's at the other end of the folk music scale from K Rusby, L McKeenit, J Moray et all.

Actually I think you'll find, Mr Continuity Jones, that it's called 'Spades, Hoes & Plows' not 'ploughs' as you so ignorantly posted above. It's on Invada Records.

It's very simple on utube to move the curser on to the song if you are not interested in how he came to write it leeneia.

Seems to me that John Lennon wrote some stuff that was pretty anarchistic in nature. It's not folk, but....

How about "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Revolution #9", and "Working Class Hero"?

I have to assume that anarchists are incapable of singing in harmony?

We have an Anarchist Marching Band in Pittsburgh. It strikes me as a bit of an oxymoron, but I have heard, seen and smelled them. They don't sound bad.

There are, heaven knows, plenty of IWW songs. If the wobblies count as anarchists.

THE RIBALD REBEL'S SONG (Fight For Liberation)

In the draft board here we sit
Covered o'er with Nixon's shit
While our sweat is turning Agnew's filthy mill
And the people, as they pass
They jam Melvin up our ass
Well I guess we've had our goddam fucking fill

Cho: Fight, fight, fight for liberation
Break, break, break the social scheme
We will drag the bastards down
And we'll grind 'em in the ground
And replace them with a working class regime

Then we'll send a firing squad
After Cardinal Spellman's God
Henry Kissinger will be the next in line
Then we'll pump some LSD
Into Jackie Kennedy
And we'll make her fuck the workers' overtime

Then we'll get a bloody rope
And we'll hang the fuckin' pope
And we'll burn the Sistine Chapel to the ground
Then we'll turn our tommy-guns
On the screaming, ravished nuns
And the peoples' voice will be the only sound

And the last verse Dick is;

If you hate the working class, but you want to save your ass,
You'd better give your money to the poor,
Or we'll sell your mothers twat to some some sailor on your yacht,
And we will turn your favorite daughter to a whore.

Recorded by Pat Sky on SONGS THAT MADE AMERICA FAMOUS. The original version can be found in that wonderful collection THE BOSSES SONGBOOK. I think that Patrick updated it a bit.

Mark-
Don't know an original source, but I can testify that the song--at least portions of it---predated The Bosses Songbook by at least a decade.
