'Beautifully structured music, written with contemporary political struggle in mind.' -- John Frame, 4ZZZ: broadcasting to the 'Greater Brisbane' area 'The record has certainly had it's effect on me-- right now I'm going out to look for some dirty love.' Mitch Gallob, Streeter Music Some people make war. John Raymond Pollard makes music. Whether rock or reggae in style, the songs' beautiful arrangements, sterling lyrics, and memorable melodies delight listeners. Songs look at a number of topics, including: A humorous, yet serious, recounting of the 2000 US presidential election A common man whose tropical paradise suffers from a failed revolution and economic boycott A gypsy on a steep and bleaker street A Long Dong Silver model of morality The dance of seven veils A natural catastrophe Old testament images and sayings. The album begins with 'King George'('The song would have been a perfect closing track for 'Fahrenheit 9-11'!' - Jed Ryan, PM Magazine) and closes with the stirring anthem, 'Equality.' Body Politic includes eleven political songs plus two karaoke tracks so you can sing 'King George' and 'The Government's Got You.'
