Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy - 'Televison, the Drug of the Nation' (1991)
I've finally got my new born baby boy to settle, so I collapse on to the sofa, bleary-eyed and flick through the channels on the TV, something I don't do that often. With good reason too, whether it's daytime TV or the wee small hours, I'm rewarded with MTV's Valleys, Loose Women, Lorraine, Jeremy Kyle, Homes Under the Hammer, Extreme Couponing, Eddie Stobart Trucks & Trailers, Secret Eaters etc etc. It's excruciatingly mind numbing. In fact I'm praying my son fills his nappy with an explosive poo so that I can go and change it instead.
|Loose Women, "you can't say that...it's only 12:35...ooh you are naughty!"|
Michael Franti's Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy gave us a bonafide Rap classic with a powerful message, Gil Scott-Heron in it's stinging commentary on American society delivered with the same venomous fervour as Chuck D. There's no hiding place. Taken from their 1992 debut album, Hypocrisy is the Greatest Luxury.
Michael Franti and Spearhead are still going strong, All People his 8th studio album was released last year (2013). Check out his website here....
