about

Electro-AgitProp singer Rick O'Disko returns with a call to arms against American complacency and a rallying cry for a progressive movement - all set to a retro-electro backdrop - truly "Che Guevara to a Disko Beat," to steal a line from Neil and Chris.

about

Rick O'Disko Syracuse, New York

Born and raised in Upstate New York, Rick O’Disko has loved dance music for as long as he can remember: “In elementary school, I used to get to class early so that my friends and I could dance to our disco 45s.” At eight years old, he asked for – and received – a strobe light for Christmas. “I set my room up as a discotheque. There was no door policy – just come on in and get down.” ... more

Track Name: Rick O'Disko - Manifesto (Original Version)
All aboard the #MoronTrain
Sliding down the track to hell
[All aboard]
I've seen the future and I
Can't afford the ride

Turn on the TV, remove my brain
Makes it #EasierToSell
[In a land where]
A thoughtful statement is
Akin to #Suicide

And the choice is bad
And the choice is worse
And I finally found the catch:
That everybody wants to #FeelTheBurn ;-)
But we're too scared to light the match

[Ha-ha, ha-ha]

[¿Listos? Empiece.]

All aboard the #CorporateJet
Let's crash it in DC
Exclusive interview on #FoxOrCNN
Have we grabbed your attention yet?
Have we killed complacency?
If not us, who? And if not now, #TellUsWhen?

Let's make our own #ZapruderFilm
Starring you, and starring me
[Rolling.Action!]
Meet me on the #GrassyKnoll
We'll decide who's the gun
And who's John F. Kennedy

[#TheIdiotsAreWinning]

You tell me #LoveTrumpsHate
I say it's much too late
To trust our fragile fate
To what's put on our plate

They want to obfuscate
They want to dominate
They want to legislate
They want to alienate

We want to activate
We want to advocate
We want to propagate
We want to stimulate

It's time to #ChangeOurState
It's time to #CleanTheSlate
It's time to tabulate
It's time to liberate

We will appropriate
We will communicate
We will elucidate
We will emancipate

I will interpolate
I will regenerate
I will accelerate
I will annihilate

[Ah-ha]

[Coda]
