I just received the above from my friend, John Mendelsohn (Christopher Milk, Sparks, critic on Rolling Stone).
John wrote and performed My Country Tortured, a haunting song about the realisation of what America did under the Bush administration.
Another excellent track is The Afghanistan Song by Superbia, a two-man outfit I met at the St Ives Arts Festival in September. I have the band's permission to post it here but Blogger appears not to have the facility to upload mp3s.
In the meantime, please enjoy John's musical comment.
