Geographic North stands with the American Civil Liberties Union and all who strive to defend and preserve basic human rights and liberties. To show our unwavering support, proceeds from the Flag's DIGI-only, Bandcamp-exclusive EP "BangBangBang" will go directly to the ACLU.
Equipped with scorching dissent, Ted McGrath's The Flag returns to the fold with BangBangBang, a 6 song EP amassing four rejigged works from The Flag's 2015 debut LP, "Heat Waves", as well as new violence in the form of "Just Like a Fantastic Black Police Car."
"Bang." finds former Antipop Consortium conspirer Beans (Warp, Anticon) disfiguring the anxiety-ridden art-punk of the original cut into an addled blitz of beats only to be sifted out again into a serene slow burn by Future Islands- and Double Dagger- offshoot Peals.
James Conduit (Geographic North, Phinery) reworks "To Wear The Vest of Wealth" into a celestial requiem for lost, unnamed loved ones while Hoss Records honcho R. Mexico recomposes "Shoot the Messenger" into a grotesque waltz of schizophrenic glee.
This EP kills fascists.
