The President's Song

President's Song


A perennial Osmium fave, and always topical. I try Jello Biafra on for size (put your own joke here), and we skewer presidential politics. A John Wall classic song. Played on Dr. Demento!

Al: Vox, Organ (no Vox Organ, however)
John: Guitar
Scott: Guitar
Dave: Bass, Drums

Wow! This was the first song I recorded with Dave Waterbury, after some prompting from Scott and Allan. And then I recorded another 60 or so, so thanks guys! I wrote this in 1985 when I had a summer job at the Watervliet Aresenal in New York, and I had a lotta time on my hands. The down and up chord progression in the bridge is affectionately named "Fred" I did a 4 track version first (very raw, but fun), and even a rap version (ugh). And yes, there is a VIDEO for this one, shot around Washington DC in 1992.

There's a rap version of this???? That would be a great pick for an Osmium rarities CD...
