ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “political awakening” is alive and well in rock & roll, thanks to Los Angeles artist John Dissed, who after years of various collaborations with vocalists began singing and recording his own songs in the fall of 2007. Dissed spent the latter half of the ‘00s performing on guitar throughout the Southwest with Los Angeles female-fronted punks, Bull Lee. When the outfit began to show signs of cracking up, he sought a more sustainable alternative.

Red Flag is John’s first full-length solo album. Released via the independent Bull Lee Records label, the album was co-produced by Dissed and electronic musician John Koster (The Labeled Nothings). Lyrically, the album deals with post-9/11 America from a “deep politics” perspective.

The album’s classic roots are given a modern, cutting-edge treatment by Eric “Mixerman” Sarafin (The Pharcyde, Ben Harper, Foreigner, Hillary Duff, Amy Grant). As well as being an in-demand producer, engineer and mixer, Sarafin is renowned for his authorship of The Daily Adventures of Mixerman, a bestselling, satirical excoriation of the corporate music industry.

Red Flag is exactly what the title purports it to be - a wake-up call – that the chickens have indeed “come home to roost,” the constitution is under attack from within, this is not the America we learned about in school and we’d better wake up ASAP if we expect life to continue much longer on our beloved Planet Earth.
