Hard Left are inspired by this election year nonsense apparently. Every few years, when those of us with avowed left-ist goals of a sort have to invariably compromise again, there's a bit of rage that bubbles up inside. Hard Left, the collective featuring members of Boyracer, D.C.'s legendary Fire Party and Black Tambourine, is back. They've tapped into that rage in order to offer up this 2-track missive aimed at the mainstream.
"Strike for America" rallies the workers on this side of the pond, while "Western Rifles" seems to aim its lyrical sights at the arms trade in this hemisphere, among other things. If you happen to be in the U.K. -- and this site still gets nearly half its hits from there -- you'd be wise to check out the official Hard Left Facebook page for details on the band's upcoming U.K. tour.
In the meantime, buy the new single from Hard Left via the link below. Proceeds from the sale of the single will go to Jacobin Magazine.
