Springfield historic punk/music blog Some Things Can’t Be Ignored are at it again with their monthly post and featured Springfield release of the past. This time it’s a split album with Springfield punk band Resident Genius and a split they released with some of the works of American social activist Howard Zinn in 2005. Resident Genius features Jason Perry on guitar and vocals, who currently plays in groups The Seething Coast and Heptanes. Head on over to the Some Things Can’t Be Ignored blog to stream and download the release, which was originally on CD. From the blog:
A lot of time and effort was put into this release and I’d say that the end product is something that everyone involved can truly be proud of. The statements made by both the band and Mr. Zinn on this split EP are short, yet powerful, and touch on issues that are just as important and relevant today as they were over a decade ago when this CD was originally released. It’s like the old saying goes, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” I hope that at some point in my lifetime I can throw on a record like this and the lyrical content be completely irrelevant to what’s currently going on in America.
You can find more out about the release from Jason on the actual post- including a breakdown of each song and lyrical content.
