EDITOR'S bs:

I know 99.9 percent of the people who read this ezine are into
really heavy music.  The Sound ezine, many years ago, used to be
multi-genre, until I started doing numerous webzines and decided
to let the freaks come to me with ezine stuff.  I used to spend
over a week researching this ezine, and another week to email it
(try over 100,000 email addresses by hand, without spamming, and
using free email accounts!  GEEZE!). If this was the only zine
I did, that would be ok.  That, however is not the case today.
What has transpired is what I mentioned a few months back when I
got quite a few cancellations because those readers had decided
the ezine was too "metal".....I get more, better in depth metal
news because the heavy metal underground is monsterous, and word
gets around about things.  If it's heavy, from punk to death metal,
it seems to end up in here.

I do every once in a while mention the other styles of music I
do publications about.  This is one of those mentions:

JOINT WEBZINE
Issue 4, 2002 is up online.

If you want the funk, can groove on hip hop and streetcore rap,
check it:
http://undergroundrecords.org/joint/

If you've got a problem with that genre, don't read that zine!

Now, that infomercial over with, let's fuckin' ROCK!

NOBLE CAUSE

An important new film: "The Ultimate Song"

    "If musicians could help put an end to poverty, that would be the
ultimate song."--Fredo Ballesteros, Boxing Gandhis

        Rock A Mole Productions has just finished a documentary film, The
Ultimate Song, that highlights the great importance of music in the battle to
end poverty. The Ultimate Song includes interviews and/or performance footage of
Ice T, Sara Hickman, Jackson Browne, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine,
Bruce Springsteen, Brother Bank, Marah, Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule, Krown
Ju-Elz,  Steve Earle, Kindred, Wayne Kramer, and Brian Blade.

    This is combined with interviews and action footage of the growing poor
people's movement in the United States. The leaders from the ranks of the poor
detail the importance of music in their work, how it helps break down the
isolation of individuals and organizations and how it keeps spirits up during
trying times.

    The Ultimate Song explores a new relationship between musicians and poor
people's organizations, where the poverty of musicians and their struggle to
create is placed on the same footing as the general problems of high rent and
low health care.  

    The Ultimate Song, filled with music from beginning to end, shows how the
use of culture can help bring about the end of poverty for musician and fan
alike. It tackles such questions as: "Are Poor People Lazy?," "What Color is
Poverty?,"  "Musicians Are (Poor) People Too," "The Power of Music," and "What
Can Musicians Do?".

    "With our leaflets or our speeches, we can only speak to hundreds or
thousands of people. Music speaks to millions."--Willie Baptist, Director of
Education, Kensington Welfare Rights Union

    A VHS copy of the Ultimate Song will be provided FREE to any musician who
wants one. If that's you, just email us at rockrap@aol.com with your name and
postal address. For everyone else, we request a $10 donation. Please send to:
RRC, Box 341305, Los Angeles CA 90034.
