What’s ‘The Murder Machine’? The personal and political meat-hooks, the myriad ways we can be ground up? And why make music about it?
I read somewhere once that Bertie Ahern kept a photo of Pearse on his desk and the irony of that couldn’t be lost on those who are living in the Ireland that Ahern and his policy-makers have left behind. The ‘Murder Machine’ song is some attempt to reclaim our history in the spirit of those who visioned a fair and free future for all of us.
