Just last night I was thinking that we hadn't had enough outsider oddness on Doklands of late. That was before Boing Boing broke the news about Gary McVay and his stirring version of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Thanks guys.
This is special music by special people. I don't know for sure that this is being sung by poor, ignorant people, but it's got to be a fair bet. These are the frontline troops in the war against godless socialism, and you've got to know that they would be the first ones sent over the barbed wire. Don't laugh at the people who sing this. Okay, they sing about how Sarah Palin's so great because she can walk through open doors, you can laugh at that bit. But it's clear they've got no idea how badly they'd be fucked if they ever got their way. That's your musical tragedy, right here.
