Decade War

New World Notes #537, 28:31 (June 19)

Decent quality MP3 (13 MB)

Selections from Skidmark Bob's fine 2011 audio collage on the horrors and futility of the US's recent wars--notably the war in Afghanistan. An engaging mix of Hollywood film clips, TV news clips, new and old music, and a good British documentary about soldiers, in a doomed outpost in Afghanistan, slowly being wiped out by the Taliban.

Musical highlights include a stunning update of Country Joe's "Feels Like I'm Fixin' to Die"--plus original (1965) and punk-rock versions of "Eve of Destruction."

This condensed version is suitably censored for radio broadcast.

Skidmark Bob produces the radio show & podcast, PoP dEFECT RADIO. More info. and download links at his blog, . The uncut, hour-long original version of "Decade War" is available on
