Feed the Love Starve the War
This CD was a visceral response at first in 2003 to the drumbeats of Armageddon set by our OIL seeking, hegemony-ish rush to Iraq War. The songs had been written and performed live at various venues, marches and memorial services in New York City and New Jersey. Questions of The Ages had been written two years earlier the day after 9/11 staring in mute pain at the smoke billowing out of the ground right near my home across the Hudson River from GROUND ZERO. MAster Guns written while sitting in the Riverview Diner in Weehauken the night before we went to war in Iraq responding to each and every front page article of how great, short and successful the war would be. I still have the front page and you can see all the characters and quotes. And somewhere in between and evolving in swings from fear to hope for our world the songs Feed the love Starve the Warm, Spacious Skies, Precious came through. (Mood swings are really great for songwriters. I can switch from an agonizing plaintive howl of a low in the verse into a soaring ecstatic high in the chorus and no one bats an eyelash!
