Album Notes
#election2016 is translated by Gashunters into a double single: The Donkey & The Elephant. This digital EP contains 2 songs: Part 1 - The Final Red Scare and Part 2 - Rise Of The Machine. Both 5 minutes long precisely, offering you 10 minutes of contemplation to consider some choices regarding the future.

Since the nineties the world shows an increasing amount of insane developments. Neoliberals in politics and oligarchic business lobbies sold out collectivism by worshipping Mammon and filling their own pockets. In less than a few decades great wealth and growth have evaporated, leaving a factual bankrupt world. 2016 shows preposterous caricatures in all of society's segments and especially in politics. Over the next years all over the world societies will be redefined and fossil concepts like labour, job and economic growth will be replaced by caring & sharing economy, sustainability & renewable energy, equality & unconditional basic income.

The Donkey & The Elephant is definitely a serious thought about the US 2016 elections. On the other hand it’s a musical nookie for Gashunters.

Unfortunately suspension of disbelief goes beyond the presidential elections. It’s widely spread and every time it is fed by deus ex machinas all over the world. On the other side there's something in the air. Feel The Bern and face the final red scare ...

And the music? 'Rise of the Machine' has a somewhat metallic taste and ‘The Final Red Scare’ has quite a ‘Bossy’ feel :)
