"Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country." On this day The League of Assholes honor labor and serve up the 4th installment of their unique blend of collaborative, third mind art punk music, RAW MEAT DIET, full of boiling blood and snarls.
RAW MEAT DIET is a spirited album performed by a virtual band, it explores the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual state of "us and them" in the summer of 2018. Some 30 jagged minutes of obliquely constructed musical vignettes held together by intention, sound and invention.
"A rabid dog on the left channel an angry gorilla on the right, the listener stuck in the middle of a confrontation."
RAW MEAT DIET follows the sound collage process and purging tradition of previous League of Assholes albums, featuring creative contributions by a host of brilliant usual suspects, inspired performances by new participants, Napoleon Hawerchuk and Jeff Kaiser as well as a good helping of arresting sounds, good headphones, dim lights and high volume are recommended.
RAW MEAT DIET is available as a free download, courtesy of The League of Assholes and Titicacaman Records. Thanks for listening!
