Fracking Protest Songs Are Everywhere!September 27th, 2011 | Posted by in Asia-Pacific | England | Environmental Campaigns
An earlier news item about fracking in North America included a clip of an excellent David Rovics song No Fracking Way; now more and more protests, with songs, are happening around the world. In England protests by the Ribble Estuary Against Fracking group have included songs and chants led by a singing clown – check out the start of the clip from Camp Frack. Meanwhile, I am grateful to the team at REAF for alerting me to the Australian CD – Whole Lotta Frackin’ Going On, which carries 14 songs; to quote from the website –
The songs are presented in a variety of genres to suit all tastes include the Voodoo Funk of ‘Lock The Gate’, Alt. Folk/Blues in ‘Gasland’, Hiphop/Rap in ‘Act Locally, Think Globally’ and ‘My Water’s On Fire Tonight’. There’s Electro-Bluegrass Rap – ‘Fracking Fluid’, Country rock – ‘Poison Well’, Country – ‘Lock The Gate Mate’, Folk – ‘Lie To Me’ and ‘Before It’s Too Late’, Trance – ‘Terra Nova Frack / Clean Water’, Positive Consciousness Rock – ‘This World’, Earth Rock – ‘I Am Stone’, Tribal Latin Rock / Rap – ‘Wake Up’ and Back Deck’s haunting ballad ‘Queen Barangaroo’.
