Kudos to Andrew Sullivan for trying to bash new band the Bastard Fairies and introducing me to them.  They’re funderful (check out their Myspace page)!  Andrew misses that the girl is an actress, not brainwashed, but it doesn’t really matter anyway.  The tunes are sweet, the lyrics are trenchantly funny, and the lead singer, Yellow Thunder Woman (she’s Sioux), is so freaking (and freakishly) beautiful I could cry (click on pics to witness the glory).

And they’re rock n’roll.  They aren’t here to appease Soccer Mommies and those alarmed by free thought, they aren’t here to introduce a model of philosophy that fits all, or even one that is realistic.  They’re here to exist purely, to give representation to the rebellious id, to create an alternative world away from the godless priests who need to control, control, control.

Best yet, their entire album is available for free download.

Also note the trailer for their upcoming documentary on the historical war against Native Americans, The Canary Effect.  

I say all of this as a brand new fan, and as someone who knows that the overwhelming majority of Dkos' community will utterly dig the hell out of these absolutely unashamedly liberal folks who write crazily infectious yet meaningful songs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Bill O'Reilly's response was funny too.

    He say's the video of the girl is child abuse, but what about the kids in Jesus Camp; wouldn't that also be considered child abuse?

    Here's the link to the kids in Jesus Camp.

  •  My 19 year old loves the Bastard Fairies (0+ / 0-)

    Her favorite song is "We're All Going to Hell". I mut say that, though I don't really enjoy much that passes for music by today's teens, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Bastard Fairies.

    This is pretty cool music, thanks to you (and A-Suv) for turning me on to them. They're going in a playlist w/ Sisscor Sisters and Pansy Division.

    If they want a culture war, I'll give them a culture war. I intend to have as much gay sex as possible before the election. I encourage you to do the same.

  •  Sullivan is great for finding obscure material (0+ / 0-)

    even if you don't agree with him. I bet, based on his comments about the video, he didn't get it. I didn't until I saw your diary. You should send him an email with their website and see if he changes his assesment.

    I loved it! Downloaded the whole album and will do as directed: share with friends and like minded folks.

    Thanks for the tip! And thanks to Sully as well!
