The Green Pajamas have something to say and they are saying it now. “Kill The Power” is their new digital single and video; clearly they do not like the presidency of Mr. Trump one bit. Historically, the Green Pajamas have not been a political entity. In this new world, that has changed – this is their second political video since the election and it kicks things up a notch from their first, their version of Woody Guthrie’s Deportee (Plane Crash At Los Gatos), which was released before Trump’s inauguration.
Pajamas’ leader Jeff Kelly: This song is not about violence. “Kill the Power” is a phrase, like “cut (or kill) the lights,” and is stated in a theatrical sense – almost a pun, upon these troubled times. The Green Pajamas do not condone violence. Although this song is certainly angry – damn angry, to be truthful – ultimately – it is about talking back the power by way of organized, peaceful protest and, perhaps more importantly, all of us acknowledging – and taking back – the facts.”
The single is available direct from Green Monkey or from our Bandcamp site. It will be available from other digital outlets such as Amazon and iTunes shortly – they’ll have to catch up as we could not wait up for them to get this one out.
The Green Pajamas will be performing this song and others Saturday March 4, 9:00pm at the Royal Room 5000 Rainier Ave S, Seattle . Don’t be late.
