"Our bodies are ballots and every step's a vote!"

This is a band out of Portland fronted by Utah Phillips' son Brendan. I heard this tune today on KVMR.

For any young'uns that might blunder onto this page, "fast rattler" is depression-era slang for a freight train. Woody Guthrie used the term in "Hard Travelin' ".

As Utah said, "A long memory is the most radical idea in America".


"Take It To The Streets" by Fast Rattler
