The Seratones Perform "Don't Need It," "Get Gone," & "Chandelier"
"The Shreveport, La., band is a joy to see and hear," writes the blurbist. Great name, too. Their music reminds me of one of my all-time favorite musical numbers ever posted here, Amythyst Kiah and This Mountain Perform "Myth", which prompted me to write:
- Southern rock still kicks ass, all the more so when infused with Memphis soul. (Mr. Otis Redding, may I introduce you to Mr. Lynyrd Skynyrd.) As the prophetess Tanya Tucker sang in I Believe The South Is Gonna Rise Again:
- But I believe the south is gonna rise again
But not the way we thought it would back then
I mean everybody hand in hand
I believe the south is gonna rise again
Back to the music, these folks making beautiful music together sure does go against the mass media narrative, from A Time to Kill (1996) to the Duke lacrosse case and the "A Rape on Campus" hoaxes, an effort designed to program us to believe that when Southron white boys and a Southron black girl get together, the most likely result would be the former gang raping the latter. [The truth about interracial rape, however, is "that white on black sexual assault is an extreme rarity" (statistically zero), whereas "blacks commit sexual assault against almost as many whites as blacks" (in the tens of thousands under both circumstances).]
