A fall-out of any ongoing political drama is an inevitable spate of pissed-off protest songs. Milwaukee’s IfIHadAHiFi got in on the action earlier this month, with an anti-Gov. Scott Walker track called “Imperial Walker.” Not only is the song a terrific slice of flailing, noisy rock ’n’ roll, it was even dissed by some chucklehead at the National Review.
Now, Milwaukee’s JC Poppe and Brooklyn-by-way-of-Milwaukee’s Pezzettino (a.k.a. Margaret Stutt) have joined forces to create their own politically-minded track, “Princess Palace.” Not unlike a 21st century Donny and Marie (he’s a little bit hip-hop, she’s a little bit punk), Poppe and Stutt share vocal duties on the haunting track, and vent their frustrations with Scott “Wisconsin’s Pope” Walker. The stop-motion video, created by Stutt, even features cameos from Bill Cosby, Wallace & Gromit, and a wide-eyed kitty. Enjoy.
