The Foremen were a 1990's satirical folk group from California. Tom Lehrer commented favorably on their topical songs and they used the quote on their "FOLK HEROES" CD. Roy Zimmerman, who wrote most of their songs, has goen on to a solo career and Andy Corwin has joined The Limeliters. There will be a "best of" CD of their songs issued April 12, 2006; info at: www.royzimmerman.com

Bother. Nothing against these lads, but I'd hoped for a moment that it might be a collection of the songs favoured by John Foreman, "The Broadsheet King".

That's funny. I just found out about Roy Zimmerman, so I bought their "Folk Heroes" CD and I am really enjoying it. Did they do any comic songs that weren't political?

Qualification of my last post: their material is excellent, I only ask about non-political songs because I am in a duo and the bassist prefers not doing anything political. (He considers "Crabs Walk Sideways" by the Smothers Brothers to be political.) Thanks.

They have some funny songs that are more social satire than political satire, such as "Lazin' in the Shade of the Information Superhighway", and a version of "Michael, Row the Boat Ashore" where the first verse ("Michael...") and the second verse ("Jordan...") are joined in the third verse to be about Michael Jordan.

Yes, "The Best of the Foremen" was released in April, and in celebration of that, Roy Zimmerman (the group's founding member) has launched a new Foremen website, here: http://foremen.royzimmerman.com/

Roy has been working on the website for months, and it turned out great. It contains an amazing wealth of info on the band, lots of great pictures, a very thorough discography, and my favorite -- a bunch of free MP3s of Foremen rarities. (Scroll almost to the bottom of the Discography, here.) My favorite never-released Foremen song is there -- "Glory Bound Train."

There's also a "Fore-um" where fans can post their stories, thoughts, pictures, or ask Roy questions.

And Russ, as far as non-political Foremen songs, there probably aren't many that would meet your partner's criteria of "non-political," but I would recommend "Godzilla Has A Midlife Crisis." It's on the new "Best of the Foremen" CD!

Joan
