I did. Cockburn's passions seem to harmonize really
well with the Oils. I'd love to see 'em on the same
bill some day. (have they ever shared a stage?)

Cool! A great trilogy, and some of his best stuff IMO.
(Wasn't that his 'Fergus on the stick/bass' period?)

BTW, any of you fellow Oils/Cockburn fans think that
"Call It Democracy" is a song that just screams for the
Oils to do live? It's totally them...



PS a sampling, for any that care....

See the loaded eyes of the children too
Trying to make the best of it the way kids do
One day you're going to rise from your habitual feast
To find yourself staring down the throat of the beast
They call the revolution

IMF dirty MF
Takes away everything it can get
Always making certain that there's one thing left
Keep them on the hook with insupportable debt 

And they call it democracy...
