“Generals” by The Mynabirds

What happens when music combines with, or becomes, a call for revolution? The Beatles, the Byrds, Dylan, Gaye, Stevens and many, many more would all agree; the world begins to change, however incrementally small or exponentially large. “Songwriters who whittle complicated issues down to a simple, memorable melody, put their finger on the zeitgeist of a […]
