Who the Fuck You Think You Are, and Where Do You Get Off?

I always wanted to try writing a song that leaned towards Bhangra. This owes a lot to Surjit Bindrakhia's "Dupatta Tera Sat Rang Da". However, instead of becoming a song about a beloved's beautiful scarf, this came out as an angry screed against politicians of all parties and nations, and maybe filtered through Butthole Surfers or PiL.

Would fit perfectly on the Monsoon Wedding soundtrack!

Thanks! I think I am getting better at this songwriting shit now that I am older and have easy-to-use digital tools -- rather than my Tascam Porta05 and couple of effects racks that I barely knew how to operate. Maybe I will post a song from 1988 next.
