Margo Guryan - 16 Words

Margo Guryan only ever released one album, Take A Picture (1968). It was a record of psyche-tinged sunshine pop flavoured with left bank recalcitrance. She hated the business of music though, made a swift exit. Here's the sole release she made since then, an anti-GW Bush protest song from 2007. It sets 16 words from his 2003 State of the Union address ("The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein has recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa") to a pompous military beat, and generally has fun with the lying son of a bitch. It's such an unlikely thing that I thought you all would want to hear it. We were never able to bring those vile fuckers to answer for their crimes, so this is pretty much as good as it ever got.
