The Rock and Roll Report

Here's a great blog on what's happening out in the music world: The Rock and Roll Report. There's an interesting story on the site Sounds Celebrating Resistance. It's about "political music" and seems relevant given Neil Young's Greendale work and it's political incorrectness.

An article on Ani DiFranco caught my eye. We had seen Ani's show earlier this summer and enjoyed the Righteous Babe's music and commentary. I've always been intrigued by her independence and not succumbing to the vultures in the music business. The article Art, Money, and the Like is explained as: " A while back Ms. Magazine did a feature on prominent young feminists, including a little blurb on Ani DiFranco. Ani DiFranco then wrote a pretty interesting and lengthy response to Ms. mag which the promo-hounds at her label, Righteous Babe Records, sent out to all these media types and I fired back an off-the-cuff response."

The letters are included and make interesting reading. Although apparently dormant, check out Sounds Celebrating Resistance .
