New EP – “The Ballad Of Milton Friedman”

This is the closest I’ll get to making a concept album!

I was moved to record this after reading and watching Naomi Klein’s book/documentary “The Shock Doctrine”.
The main subject is how the US and UK governments of Reagan and Thatcher used the hard-line capitalist policies of economist Milton Friedman to justify war and mass-unemployment in order to ’stabilise’ the economy. Thatcher used them to crush the trade union movement in the UK.

Early experiments with Friedman’s theories were carried out in Chile under the dictatorship of General Pinochet in the 60s and 70s; resulting in mass subjugation, kidnap, torture and murder.

Unfortunately, their legacy lives on in the form of US practice in Iraq, Afganistan, Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib.

Anyway….this is where the music is….its all free (320kbps MP3s or WMA): CLICK HERE!
