…got all your pills, SUGAR WORLD – Time to Kill
by Walter Price
Pick any daunting reality of our current era: Social injustice, the pandemic, or the trampling of our individual rights are just a few that continue to unravel our personal and community well being. And the political landscape is and has been unfolding into a farcical game of “look at me” with no tangible outcome. Yet, the need to get involved in the changing of this bizarre new world has never been more urgent.
And the opening two lines in San Diego-based Sugar World’s recent single, “Time to Kill”, sum up politics aptly, “I’ll be nice to the poor if you are nicer to me / if you promise not to bully the bourgeoisie”. Regardless of what side you put your trust and hope for the future in, it boils down to age-old empty promises and pleas. And it’s up to you, me, and they to use our wandering noggins to do the right thing. It’s not as hopeless as it may seem…
and we’ll allow you to vote but we’ll break all the machines
unless you take back all your jokes about guillotines
you’re allowed to stand and fight
but you’d better be polite
we’ve got all your pills
and it’s time to kill
And this mighty duo is here to motivate with their reverb-heavy, wink-and-a-smile bubblegum infused So-Cal Rock n Roll. And if you’re a fan of Helen Love, The Queers, and/or The Field Mice, then add this one to your favorite make-a-change playlist!
And you can stream this motivator and Sugar World’s debut single, “Sad In Heaven”, now at the GTC.
And Please Vote!
