Working-Class Heroes CD -- Out Now!


The most essential music is conceived by real human beings: ordinary, anonymous, often poor—people who stood up and joined together to fight injustice and institutional oppression. This is the story of Working-Class Heroes, a collection of American working-class, pre–World War II folk songs revived by Mat Callahan & Yvonne Moore. Here the duo presents 20 songs written by both by folk canon heavyweights and lesser-known but equally gifted songwriters . Both beautiful and emotionally arresting, the album is a collection of stories as much as songs—stories of the women and men who (sometimes literally) gave their lives to emancipate the working class.

Heroes featured in this collection: Sarah Ogan Gunning, Ralph Chaplin, Woody Guthrie, Ella May Wiggins, Joe Hill, Paul Robeson, John Handcox, Aunt Molly Jackson, Jim Garland, and several more anonymous proletarian songwriters, whose names have been long forgotten but their words immortalized.

Gord Hill on Last Born In The Wilderness Podcast

In this episode, I speak with Gord Hill (also known as Zig Zag) — Indigenous artist, activist, and the author of numerous books/graphic novels, including ‘500 Years of Indigenous Resistance,’ ‘The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book,’ ‘The Anti-Capitalist Resistance Comic Book,’ and 'The Antifa Comic Book.’ A major theme that runs through this discussion with Gord is the recognition that there is currently a growing intersection between what can be defined as traditionally Eurocentric Leftist political theory and practice with anti-colonial Indigenous resistance, throughout the so-called American continents, from North to South.

Gilbert Shelton, Famed Freak Bros Artist, and Graphic Novel Publisher Paul Buhle

 


In 1969, activist and history grad student Paul Buhle published a special graphic issue of his SDS journal, Radical America. He enlisted Austin-based cartoonist of Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers fame, Gilbert Shelton, to edit what would be the first merger of New Left politics with the burgeoning counterculture and underground comix movements. 

Now, in 2018, Radical America Komiks has been reissued with a new introduction by Buhle and foreword by Jay Kinney.

Paul, a prominent historian of the Left and popular culture critic, now publishes graphic novels and radical comics. Shelton, whose Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers -- characterized by Buhle as "totemic" figures in the counterculture -- first appeared in Austin's The Rag, also created Wonder Wart-Hog, Fat Freddie's Cat, and Feds 'N' Heads. Shelton and Robert Crumb are generally considered the preeminent artists of the comix movement. Gilbert joins us from Paris, France, where he now lives.—Rag Radio with Thorne Dreyer
