Homeland, by Roy Zimmerman (one CD)
Roy Zimmerman has been writing satirical songs for twenty years. He’s shared the stage with George Carlin, Bill Maher, Kate Clinton, Dennis Miller, Sandra Tsing Loh, kd lang, Andy Borowitz, and Paul Krassner, and played a series of shows swapping songs with The Pixies’ Frank Black.
Zimmerman founded and wrote all the material for the satirical folk quartet The Foremen, who recorded for Warner Reprise throughout the nineties. As a solo artist, he’s released five albums, the latest of which is Faulty Intelligence. “I hope it gets good reviews,” he says, “but mostly I hope it gets denied under oath by Karl Rove.”
Satirical snipes at the socio-political scene on the home front, post-9-11. Includes a portrait in song of “Jerry Falwell’s God,” a jab at the Bush-Gore 2000 election (“My TV”), and a metaphor for the “Patriot Act” that’s hard to get off your shoe. Part of a double-CD release, this collection of twelve biting originals is the domestic partner of “Security.”
