FOB are releasing a quickie digital LP, recorded in two days at Ryan Adams' Pax Am Studio. This 1:24 hardcore rant is fun fake-thrash rendered with all the sincerity and care of someone throwing out old Hot Topic gear that doesn't fit anymore.
“Long Walk Home”
Bruce Springsteen | 2007
When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
