Stonebridge -1976



 
Stonebridge -1976/Uncle Sam –Starship Records SS4 0076 (1976 US)

On the periphery of Bonehead Cruncher-land, comes this wonderfully dumb bi-centennial opus by Michigan’s Stonebridge. Its initial dumb-ass boogie approach melds into a voice-over led section of utter idiocy “bombs and destruction became the prevalent thing…” where we learn in fact that WWII began at Pearl Harbor!!! There’s no ism like revisionism  or jingoism when twinned with a total lack of education...The B side is more of the same, but doesn’t quite feature the same full-on assault on our sensibilities and replaces it with some ill-advised pomp.

Hear a full version of 1976

Amazing!!!
Thank you thank you thank you for this vintage slice of dumb-assery.
Utterly moronic, but damned enjoyable nonetheless.
Did George W. Bush learn American history by studying this?
You say the B-Side is more of the same but more pompous?
Gimme gimme, pretty please.

I thought about posting the B side, but it would take away from the genius of the A side. I'll be putting up a spare of this masterpiece in late October. You can then discover it for your self!
