Album Notes
The Quiet War

Album length: 33:33
There may be a hidden one behind all the noise.


The Quiet War is a collection of peaceful protest songs created over the last 3 years by a concerned Canadian citizen. The album was inspired by the federal court case of the Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform vs. The Bank of Canada in addition to a satirical political pasteup attributed to Lyle Hartford Van Dyke, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars.

Kanada Day is a peaceful protest of grungy psychedelic rock by a concerned Canadian with a pure punk DIY ethos. Initially inspired to song on The Bailout (2012) by the Crime Minister, Stephen Harper during his decade of deceit, it was the federal court case of the Committee On Monetary and Economic Reform vs. The Bank of Canada (2011-2017) that quickly caught the attention of this citizen. It inspired the song Public Service Announcement from the 2015 EP of the same name. The case revealed Harper as nothing more than a symptom of a deeper problem plaguing our society. The Quiet War (2019) is the first full length release by Kanada Day and is intended to bring awareness to this issue that is destroying democracy: the economic assault on our sovereignty. Money is public and social, not private. A century ago, this was THE central political issue of its time. Today, obfuscated by disinformation.

01 The Silent Weapons is a dubbed out exploration inspired by the book that has shaped the entire 21st century: Propaganda. Written in 1928 by Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays reveals the mindset of the corporate Elite he envisions destined to lead the stupid masses (that’s us he’s talking about, folks). The book explains how democracy must be subverted by corporations to create a society of trained and predictable consumers by Manufacturing Consent, further explained in the book of the same name by Edward S. Herman & Noam Chomsky in 1988. The end result is the politics of eternity we recognize in Big Brother from George Orwell’s 1984 (1949).

02 The Business Plan is a purely punk inspired introspection of what it’s like to “live” in the 21st. Are we humans or slaves? We have apparently chosen this society with these rules and these leaders, but has that choice been manufactured? Are we nothing more than a feast for the capital vampires? Take a look all around you. This is a business plan.

04 The Mascot is a playful synth rock sing along that questions the efficacy of our local MPs ability to represent us, the wealth creating citizens. In reality, all political members of The Party are beholden to The Party Whips that ensure The Party Line is the bottom line. Lip service is played in the local ridings, but our local MPs power to represent us is ultimately dependent upon the views, influence and financial support that corporations provide to The Party of the day.

05 The Face is psychedelic punk catharsis, boldly calling out the farce that politics has become. Do you ever wonder if our leaders are individual people capable of critical thought? Or merely handsome automatons selected by focus groups and think tanks to read scripted talking points written by The Party Spin Doctors who are, in turn, guided by hidden corporate hands to peddle influence one elected representative at a time as the face of corporate socialism?

The concept of this album was inspired by a satirical political paste-up, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars (1979) attributed to Lyle Hartford Van Dyke who presented the above process of capital theft as a manual on how to take over the world. Countless people have claimed it to be an authentic instructional manual for an elite secret society (despite none being mentioned), although it was merely the musings of an artist with a keen eye for detail hidden in plain sight.

The Quiet War was written, recorded, played, produced, mixed & mastered by Kanada Day in his spare time over the last 3 years. With the exception of the exceptional MF who played drums on tracks 1,5 & 9; PBJ who played fuzz bass and Half B who played drums on track 8; Calixa Lavallée who wrote the original music to The Anthem in 1880, which is now in the Public Domain.
