King of the Hill
Unabashed members of the journalism-industrial complex, Dirty Bomb draws on their inside knowledge of Washington, D.C. to tell the story of a lobbyist who flew too close to the sun. 'King of the Hill' draws on courtroom evidence and reporters' notebooks as raw material for a hard-rockin' concept album inspired by the influence-peddling scandals that shook the nation's capital in the waning days of the Bush administration. But don't expect a finger-wagging exercise in Congress-bashing -- while 'King of the Hill' doesn't shy away from the details of the sausage-making process, the emotions of the nameless antihero are front and center. Ambition, greed, paranoia, betrayal -- and golf.
