South African Punk Downloads Review: We Paid For This Firepool by Monday Morning Justice

Monday Morning Justice or MMJ started as a solo folk punk project in Middelburg, Mpumalanga... A very conservative, religious and racist town to be playing fast atheistic folk music with political undertones. Now with a full band backing up a snot filled collection of very intricate punk rock songs, with heartfelt lyrics. This is a must listen to album.

"But can you find a better friend
than one who helps you jump the fence,
looks out when you slash their tires,
burns a flag when you're cold and tired
A brother, a sister, an open hand
mother can you understand we live a life we've never owned

So whisper softly sabotage
and wither slowly this visage.
Now we know the blood of kings
is spilled as easy as those who sin
Shape this country into land
and share it with your fellow man,
there are greater uses for this fire
but none as great as to burn their empire!

The fathers who brought us to a land where
the children scream: "Why?!!!"
As I awake with a skull in my hand

Betray all that history has written
Now that their aren't any statues left,
to obscure the view I hope we see thee embers
of our burnt brothers who cross borders
Now that there aren't any lights on nowa' days
I hope we notice their...
I hope we notice their...
I hope we notice their hue"

- It takes who to be an African....

Folk, Blues, Ska, Punk out of Middelburg, Mpumalanga.
