NEW MUSIC 8.9.06


Recorded in New Orleans, before Katrina hit and then finished in New York, this album seems to have Ani more in a "focused" mood than the previous attempts. Both the songwriting and music come together and strengthen the entire process...plus she gets a lil' political again, which is always nice...


millennium theater
get out there and buy that water and gas
Ramadan orange alert
everybody put on your gas mask

first leak it out about the president
then stand up and shout "impeachment"
pulling coat tails out from under that little V.P.
before he has a chance to get in the driver's seat

millennium spectacle
everybody put on a show
slip a little prince in the back door
21st century here we go

digital whiplash
so many formats so little time
while out in TV nation
under darkening skies
the resistance is just waiting
to be organized

millenium theater
chief justice is for sale
yucca mountain goddesses
their tears they form a trail

trickle down Israel
patriarchies realign
the ice caps melt
and new orleans bides her time
new orleans bides her time

ladies and gentlemen
welcome to tonight's show
the millennium theater
asks that you not smoke
please turn off your cell phones
and forget what you think you know


Their first releases are back in print and allow people like me who didn't get into them until their more recent albums to proclaim, "Dude you gotta hear their earlier work!" Cause that's how you know the real fans from the fakers. (Honestly, it's not a bad debut...has a sort of "Urge Overkill" feel to it. The early Urge Overkill, that is. Back before they sold out. :)
