Nathan Leigh

“Slumlord’s Kids”

Ordinary Eternal Machinery

Folk/punk artist Nathan Leigh has a great song and a great video coming off his new album, Ordinary Eternal Machinery, set to be released in January 2017.  So seldom has protest music sounded so much fun.  Usually, those who have causes sing in such a way that is so serious, one can’t have fun with the song.  Not with Leigh:  his music is always uptempo, yet he always has an important criticism about society.  No surprise.  Leigh has been a founding member of the Peoples Puppets of Occupy Wall Street, now in its 5th year of radical street theater and puppetry.  He also is a reviewer for AFROPUNK.  In my opinion, Leigh is one of the great protest writers around.  Remember, you can change the world and have fun.
