They're Crazy

[1983]
Lyrics and Music by Charles C. Tyler

"A song written when Russia and the USA were still threatening to annihilate each other with nuclear weapons.
I grew up like all my generation in a world in which the possibility of an all-out nuclear war between the USA and Russia seemed like a real possibility. The Cuban missile crisis – Dr. Strangelove – fallout shelters. I wrote several songs around these nightmare themes, but this one seemed to sum up the madness best. It may seem a little less likely now - but the weapons are still there and are still just as dangerous. And they are in more hands than ever and growing. This is no time to be complacent and this song is still relevant. I made this recording about 1983 on a very simple cassette deck in the house I rented in Mendocino, playing on the old piano that came with the house. A rare example of my piano playing… :-) "
Oh they're crazy

Da-Da: War is On (If The War is On Then The Head is Off)

[2005]
Lyrics and Music by Chris Diurni
Album: Da-Da

"A great head-bashing anarchic punk track by Chris Diurni in which Bonnie and I scream our lungs out...
Bonnie's amazing scream and my ripped throat are the things I remember most from this 'bash it out quick and get it down while it's hot' session at the Mendocino Community School studio.. Tony and John drive the song along brilliantly - a club favourite with Da-Da fans..."
You wanna kill? You wanna fight?

Rapture Bell

[2007]
Lyrics and Music by Charles C. Tyler
Album: Charles Tyler

"This 3rd song is a satire on evangelical Christians.
One of three songs that I have written around the Middle-East conflict. This one focuses on the mad people who are actually hoping for the troubles in the region to escalate into a "final conflict" prior to the "Rapture" and the "Second Coming" of Jesus Christ. These are people who obviously don't have much grip on reality. It would be OK if they were just harmless nutters - but this particular wacky belief is potentially very dangerous.

These are people who call themselves Christians but who actually hope for Armageddon and for millions to die. They expect to escape death themselves and selfishly hope to be 'saved' by their faith. In my view these people are even more evil - if that is possible - than suicide bombers who actually have far more limited objectives.... (continua)
Well I'm a true believer

I Want To Grow Up To Be A Bomb

[2007]
Lyrics and Music by Charles C. Tyler
Album: Charles Tyler

"This song is meant to be a satire on Suicide Bombers, ...my exasperated response to the madness of people who think that by blowing themselves up and killing people who have a different belief to their own they are somehow going to achieve their political goals and are simultaneously doing something for 'God'.

It's bad enough for an adult to convince themselves this is a noble thing to do. Admittedly it takes a kind of bravery - albeit a bravery which depends upon an irrational belief in some better afterlife - but what kind of person can teach such nonsense to children and send them off to their deaths? And do this in the name of 'God'?

Good people everywhere - Muslims, Jews, Christians, Atheists - whatever - need to stand up to these dangerously brainwashed individuals and tell them the truth. They need help.
