Lest we forget
Lest we forget (Tall Poppies TP185)
SKU: 04127
AU $23.00

Label: Tall Poppies Cat. No.: TP185 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Welcome to the world's first "classical" protest CD. The music is wide-ranging, from Germany, France, England, Austria, Poland, Chile, USA, and Australia, covering issues as diverse as world wars, the Holocaust, dictatorships and the stolen generation. It is a no-holds-barred plea for humanity to get a grip on humanitarian values, before it is too late.

This CD has been undertaken as a labour-of-love by the artists and by Tall Poppies, and the profits will be shared with the Fitzroy Learning Centre in Melbourne. (This organisation gives educational and other assistance to refugees in Australia.

"This collection of songs began as a protest against recent events in our country, to remind ourselves that the relaxed and comfortable culture our government was intent on bringing us was in fact based on lies, fear, threats, apathy, hatred and the glorification of small-minded selfishness. Above them all, and most perniciously, came the vaunting fallacy that this selfish indifference was quite acceptable, the idea that not caring is somehow simply human and a harmless and innocent thing to do.

Listen to our songs. Not caring is never harmless.

All the songs were written by and about people whose plight was caused because others did not care enough to see; or even worse, they saw and did not care enough to stop what was happening. The songs, born of suffering or the knowledge of suffering, demonstrate compassion and even love. That is what gives them their strength: the real voice of humanity." - Merlyn Quaife and Andrea Katz.
