Pure Comic Genius

This is the song Pam Atlas featured specially in her recent dj gig for a Phoenix radio station that wants to go out of business. The band is called Weapons of Musical Defense, and they describe themselves as

a group of concerned rockers and rock stars. We’ve studied and read since 9-11 and found out some facts that are pretty hard to find out. We want to share these with a wider audience. We know many people are reading blogs and web sites about these topics but we want to reach out to those who don’t or won’t read the books and blogs on Jihad and Islam.

You have to listen to it in the right frame of mind. It's terrible, and that's the point. It's the Battlefield Earth of music. I especially love the repeat of the chorus "evil will live on" sung like a cry of love at the end.

"WMD is a group of concerned rockers and rock stars."

I love this. It reminds me of the note left behind when Jon Benet Ramsay was killed, something like, "We are a shadowy underground group of terrorists..."

And that little melisma warble for the final "will live on" is weapons-grade kitsch.

These guys are awesome. I want more artists to be so deep.

Gas Music From Jupiter.

Are there anything even slightly near "rockstars" involved?

"Head-onistic?" Limeys? Or fools?

Evil Does Live On!!!

The present day composer refuses to die!!
