America in Denial
Elmer Creek Conspiracy is, first and foremost, a backyard band. Two Vietnam vets and two Canadians from a borderline community, with backgrounds ranging through folk, blues, country and jazz have come together to bring forth a different kind of state of the union address. Borne out of long summer evenings playing around campfires and discussing the sorry state of affairs both domestic and foreign, America in Denial cuts to the heart of the issues facing America today with clarity, compassion, and a burning desire to speak truth to power. The songs address issues such as immigration and the war in Iraq in a straightforward backyard style with compelling lyrics and tunes that are hard to get out of your head.
