    This year has demonstrated beyond any possible doubt that the human race is blithely and psychopathically genocidal.

    And if daily reminders of this sad and truly distressing reality aren’t enough, next to nothing has been effectively done to redress the horror because of the not entirely surprising confirmation that a great number of the people you know are …

    a. Cruel and nasty.
    b. Wilfully ignorant.
    c. Racist.
    d. Chickenshit.
    e. All of the above.

    Protest, agitate, donate … do something. Anything.

    Let’s at least pretend to be interested in creating a better future.

    Address to the Nation - Chris Masuak and the Viveiro Wave Riders (I-94 Bar Records)
    Bomber Down - Bomber Down (self released)

    “Address to the Nation” and “Bomber Down” come out of the blocks, fiery and roaring, full of piss and vinegar. Tight strong songs, stuff that belongs on the stereo, in the car, loud at parties and annoying pimply neighbours who ruin the neighbourhood and go to bed at 8.30.

    “Address to the Nation” is Klondike's fourth long-playing solo band CD; the others, although most readers of this site will have them, were Klondike's North 40: “The Straight Path”; Chris Klondike Masuak “Workhorse”; Chris Masuak and the Viveiro “'Brujita”.and now this all issued by the website you're reading now.

    Full Disclosure nonsense: I like Chris too. Also, I knew the members of the immediate precursor to Bomber Down, Phil, Sean, Rob and Tony. Rob and Tony are no longer with us - it's not been a good year.
