I always complain that there aren’t near enough bands who are socially aware, and seek to EDUCATE as much as they entertain.
Times are a-changing (again). Exhibit A: RxGF, a hard-hitting industrial band with a serious agenda.
One of the greatest joys of music (especially in alternative circles) is it grants us the opportunity to say that which is unsaid, especially that which deviates from accepted norms.
The song that’s most captured my attention: How to Make It, a meta-critique dissing the music industry’s prevalent corruptions.
Their heavy gothic crunch isn’t quite my thing, but it’s the message behind the music that gets me going.
“If you do what we tell you, we’ll make you a star.”
“We’ll reprogram your mind ‘til you don’t know who you are.”
