( still ) turning revolution into money

Posted in music on May 2, 2018 by thefalloutcanada

Out now!

Originally released in 2004, “Turning Revolution Into Money” has been(slightly) renamed and completely re-mixed / re-mastered by Byron at his Farmhouse studio.

You can download it our Bandcamp page for free or pay-what-you-can.

Any money that does come in will go towards offsetting the costs of our upcoming 7″ and full-length.

A review of the original release:

“Great driving melodic punk with a left leaning message. This is one of Toronto’s newest and brightest talents, featuring Jeremy the guy behind the Anti-Warped tour shows. The FALLOUT remind me of the CLASS ASSASSINS with a healthy dose of the CLASH and INFA RIOT thrown into the guitar work. As for the vocals they remind me of Frankie Stubbs meets AGENT ORANGE, which translates to an odd mix that is a snotty style that has a hoarse delivery. As for the ideology, the FALLOUT are talking about important things like the erosion of civil liberties in “Quebec City” to scene violence in “Macho Duck”. The lyrics seem to be inspired by bands like the ANGELIC UPSTARTS and DOA. The FALLOUT are kind of like something between MARILYN’s VITAMINS and the CLASS ASSASSINS however there is loads of group back ups that will have you singing along as if it were the CLASH’s “I’m So Bored”. This is fuckin’ great, especially for a debut release. (Equalizing X Distort)”

… from the upcoming 7″ on Rebel Time Records …

… Toronto Pride Parade … 1973 …

RAISE YOUR FLAG

Raise your flag, Raise it high
Let them look you in the eye
Side by side
Show your pride
Wave your flag, wave your flag
Raise your flag, Raise it high
And when they look you in the eye
Wave your flag, wave your flag, wave your flag

Double standards of the hypocrites
They condescend as you bite your lip
You’re in my heart
You’re on my mind
You don’t have to take that shit

On the horizon is a new frontier
If you feel alone or you’re getting scared
With all your spirit
And all your soul
You know there is nothing to fear

Sing if you’re glad to be gay

Homophobes are just a dying breed
As they cling to an illegitimate creed
You’re in my heart
You’re on my mind
They offer nothing that you can believe

All their hate they never take a rest
Stunning ignorance takes away your breath
With all your spirit
And all your soul

Resolve that you’ll never forget

To sing if you’re happy that way

… from “(Still) Turning Revolution Into Money”

… anti-war march … Boulder, Colorado … 1972

please don’t get excited cause I’m not keeping score
of the chances you’ve blown and opportunities ignored
to help the ones you love and say you care for
while you talk righteously all about it

and it ain’t getting better in fact it’s getting worse
poor are getting poorer the meek inheriting the earth
while here in the America’s we’re still giving birth
to the notion we’re all created equal

now I don’t think you understand what you’re fighting for
our music, poetry and politics don’t lead to a cure
We need more than talkin” punk rock civil war

please don’t take me wrong, don’t get pissed off
but the injustice and violence that you think you can stop
continues everyday as we sing our protest songs

talk without action produces no results
self-gratifying lifestyles removing any doubt
the chimes of freedom have long wrung out
in a world where direct action counts

… from an upcoming Rebel Time Records release …

… women’s liberation march … 1971 …

HOLDING UP HALF THE SKY

Fighting for equality
Struggling for an opportunity
Violence and oppression
Can’t stop her liberation

Stereotypes of sexuality
Leading to misogyny
Now has come the time
Stop believing all the lies
See her eye to eye
While she’s holding up half the sky

Time to be heard above the noise
Time for men to lend a voice
Stand and fight for equal rights
It’s your body – it’s your choice

Gender bias in the justice system
Placing blame upon the victim
We all know who’s at fault
For the harassment and assaults

Prisoners in an economic cage
Equal work means an equal wage
Now has come the time
Stop believing all the lies
See her eye to eye
While she’s holding up half the sky

It’s time we all gave a fuck
Support your local Janey Canuck

It’s been a while, but, we have been busy! We’ve recorded 19 new songs that will be released via Rebel Time Records in 2018.

First up will be a 7″ EP in the spring, followed by a full-length.

Here’s a couple of new songs!

White noise
In stereo sound
Nothing sounds worse
Need to turn it down
Turn it down

Feeble minds cling to misguided fears
Forcing their nonsense
Into naïve ears
Turn it down

Mouth full of hate
Head full of shit
Bigots pandering to idiots
Turn it down

Your out of touch
Get with the times
Turn it around
And leave your hate behind
Turn it down

 

Fighting for equality
Struggling for an opportunity
Violence and oppression
Can’t stop her liberation

Stereotypes of sexuality
Leading to misogyny
Now has come the time
Stop believing all the lies
See her eye to eye
While she’s holding up half the sky

Time to be heard above the noise
Time for men to lend a voice
Stand and fight for equal rights
It’s your body – it’s your choice

Gender bias in the justice system
Placing blame upon the victim
We all know who’s at fault
For the harassment and assaults

Prisoners in an economic cage
Equal work means an equal wage
Now has come the time
Stop believing all the lies
See her eye to eye
While she’s holding up half the sky

It’s time we all gave a fuck
