” Do not be afraid of our exhuberence…Do not be threatened by our celebration……”
Artist : Speak No Evil,
Cut : Lies
Album : Welcome to the Downside
The LA heavy metal band Speak No Evil ‘s winning entry LIES was a hidden track on their release Welcome to the Downside.
It included sampled vocal text from Vermin Supreme’s larynx at the 2000 LA DNC National Convention.
(Yes , the one with all the rubber bullets )
At 2:10-2:30 There is a great bird’s i-view of the dangerous crazy clusterf*ck created, as the mounted police forced the crowd thru a bottleneck exit, into the rifle sights of riot cops. ( can you find vermin?)
“Attention LAPD, Everything is under control. Please return to your homes . Your services are no longer required “.
Because of the songs radio unfriendly chorus, “Don’t you f***ing Lie to me!”, it did not recieve very much airplay.
Speak No Evil also get extra bonus points for actually tracking Vermin down and seeking permission to use his sampled voice.
