Catalog Number DG-81
Release Date February 25, 2014Tracklist:
It occurred to me a little while ago that Tuli Kupferberg’s CIA Man (which I had contributed a few verses to) could be updated to address a more contemporary menace as NSA Man. No new verses were forthcoming, so I fell back to my recent default setting, and crowdsourced my Facebook wall. Dozens of “friends” were on the case instantly. I cherrypicked and tweaked, tried singing it, and shortened it. Brevity enhances polemics. I will credit the 10 or 12 co-creators who helped me bumrush the subject of this song. Thank you all. I couldn’t have done it without you.
