This Machine Kills Fascists
Beatnik is a Southern California sonic folk band that pushes the envelope of political awareness. With a sound that has been described as Simon and Garfunkel meets Zappa, the group rails against injustice and provides a platform for the weak, the hungry, and the disaffected. The group's sixth album,'This Machine Kills Fascists', is a shout-out for the working poor, with targeted songs like 'Food Not Bombs' (dedicated to those souls who feed the homeless in the public parks), and wistful harmonies as on the tune 'It's A Working Man's Life'. It's all about cold mornings on the side of the road, with guys just waiting to get to work.
