Rally Round The Family.
Rage Against The Machine's political analysis falls significantly short on a number of fronts. Their ongoing relationship with Sony proves that they are yet to check out the Godspeed You Black Emporer LP with that diagram on the back that shows the incestuous interrelationship between a bunch of major record labels and a bunch of major weapons manufacturers. And the description of one of their recent Festival Hall shows as a "shirts-off cock forest" shows they still have a way to go on gender (someone should get in their ears about a safer spaces policy). But fuck, when a ghetto kid from the Richmond flats comes up to me at school and wants to talk about the Zapatistas, I know who to send my thank you letters to.
