The World Cup, Japan vs Australia and songs about cops from anti-war compilations
I remember reading somewhere that during the span of the Olympics or any other global sporting event, that wars and violence and all that stuff that bums us out tends to decline somewhat...hopefully the 2006 World Cup (which kicks off in a couple of hours) will keep that trend alive.
This post goes out to Japan's first match in Group F, against Australia on June 12th. 2 songs about the men in blue, both from anti-war complitaions.
v/a P.E.A.C.E. (buy from insound)
R Radical 1984
Australian band outta Melbourne, from the P.E.A.C.E. comp, released by those hippies from MDC. Reissued in 97 by New Red Archives.
v/a A Farewell To Arms
Classic Japanese hardcore outta Osaka...awesome live show...they were da shit.
My prediction: Japan 3-Australia 1
