From the “In Harm’s Way” 7″, out now.
“This song and music video are dedicated to the current administration. You will not build walls in our children’s hearts.”
Seems like the actor who plays our orange fuhrer could’ve shaved his Chuck Todd goatee, but who asked me?
Warning for those viewing at work or offended by the human body: there’s brief nudity.
“Mother” is the least subtle song on The Wall and establishes its central metaphor. I can remember the stoners in high school talking about the movie and saying you “had to be high to understand it.” That might be true if you have a half a brain cell to work with but the plot is pretty fucking obvious, and as a guy who was raised by an overprotective mom after his dad died young, I feel qualified and obligated to mock Roger Waters about it. Boo hoo. Poor you.
Of course, as with everything terrible, the current political climate puts a new spin on it. And things that seemed dopey and juvenile now appear insightful and heavy. Being forced to re-evaluate The Wall might not be the absolute worst outcome of the events of 2017, but jeez, it’s certainly the most unexpected.
