Tom Morello – The Nightwatchman :: World Wide Rebel Songs

by

Tom Morello was de gitarist van Rage Against The Machine en Audioslave. Als Tom Morello The Nightwatchman was hij tot voor kort een folkie, die protestliedjes in de traditie van Woody Guthrie maakte. Maar op World Wide Rebel Songs heeft hij weer zijn elektrische gitaar ter hand genomen en een groep geformeerd die treffend de Freedom Fighter Orchestra heet. Het resultaat is verbluffend. Morello maakt zich nog steeds boos over het onrecht in de wereld. Maar de muziek is ook weer boos en hemelbestormend. Een ongelooflijke combi van Nick Cave, Bruce Springsteen, The Pogues, Led Zeppelin en Rage Against The Machine. Een revolutionaire CD, in alle betekenissen van het woord. 

 

For his third full length album as The Nightwatchman (and the fourteenth album of his illustrious career), guitar superhero Morello switched up his style. Since 2007, he has used the moniker for his alter ego as a solo folk balladeer, delivering uncompromising protest songs in the tradition of Woody Guthrie and the young Bob Dylan. That identity was recently heard on Morello’s Union Town EP, eight songs benefiting the America Votes Labor Unity Fund, recorded in response to the anti-union bill put forward by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. But on World Wide Rebel Songs, he has assumed the role of frontman for a band, The Freedom Fighter Orchestra, and picked up his electric guitar to convey his messages of resistance.
