End of the World Playlist #1 – Bob

bosch

The end is seemingly upon us. Nuclear codes, social safety nets, human rights are up on the air, and admittedly, some of us at YRCS are as well. We felt it fitting to provide the soundtrack for the end of days. Thus, this week will be peppered with just that. Here’s our first from Bob Bucko, Jr. Happy ending.

 

 

Mendacity – Max Roach

A highlight on a highly political album recorded in the midst of the civil rights uprising.
Abbey Lincoln’s passionate, powerful voice resonates with terribly relevant frustration:
“Mendacity, mendacity, it makes the world go round.
A politician makes a speech and never hears the sound.
The campaign trail winds on and on in towns from coast to coast.
The winner ain’t the one who’s straight, but he who lies the most.”

Mr. Follow Follow – Fela Kuti

Fela’s music is the literal sound of dissent and revolution.

Strange Fruit – Billie Holiday

Black lives matter.

State of Shock – The Ex & Tom Cora

My feeling Tuesday evening… and the following days.

Waiting For the End of the World – Elvis Costello

Elvis’ trademark snark and sneer directed at the creator. “Dear lord I sincerely hope you’re coming ’cause you really started something.”

Duke of Newcastle – The Red Krayola
The

Red Krayola always approached politics from a revolutionary Marxist slant, and this song explores the militaristic impulses of the religious to a slack, laconic groove.

Nuclear War – Sun Ra

Sun Ra always talked about outer space because this here Earth was failing us. On this song he gets terrestrial, leading a dry, dark call-and-response about the bomb. “What you gonna do without your ass?!”

Wars of Armageddon – Funkadelic

Go funky into that dark night.

Final Day – Young Marble Giants

I’m convinced this really does sound like what the end will feel like.

Crest – Stereolab

I’ve been meditating on this lyric for 20 years now:
“If there’s been a way to build it, there’ll be a way to destroy it. Things are not all that out of control.”

Women of the World – Jim O’Rourke

“‘Women of the world take over, ’cause if you don’t, the world will come to an end. And it won’t take long.”

All You Fascists Bound To Lose – Woody Guthrie

Artists fight back.

The Creator Has a Master Plan – Pharoah Sanders

I’m not the spiritual type, but free jazz makes me a true believer. Peace across the land.

I’ll Call It Morning – Gil Scott-Heron

I listened to this on repeat as I sobered up Wednesday morning.
“Be no rain.”

Fearless – Pink Floyd

It’s not going to be easy. Keep climbing. (And a cosmic shout out to Private Hall.)

Say Valley Maker – Smog

“So bury me in wood
And I will splinter
Bury me in stone
And I will quake
Bury me in water
And I will geyser
Bury me in fire
And I’m gonna phoenix”
