Cheddar Revolution: Songs of Uprising is a compilation of protest songs inspired by the Wisconsin Uprising. The CD consists of 19 tracks, 15 from Wisconsin, one from each coast and one from Wayne Kramer and one from Jon Langford and includes 13 year old Sam Frederick, Milwaukee band IfIHadAHiFi, along with great Madison artists Ken Lonnquist, Ida Jo, The German Art Students, The Kissers and VO5, along with many, many others.
The CD is available for free download at:
Please note: The project is funded entirely with grants and donations. It is purely a labor of love and is all about aiding the struggle as well as adding to the historical record of the Wisconsin Uprising.
We hope for nothing other than:
1. Providing strength to those who have been active in the struggle every day for the last 16 months--As Tom Morello says, the protest song steels the spine and provides wind for the sails.
2. Providing inspiration for those sitting on the sidelines to join and rejoin the fight.
3. Provide a reminder to those who have forgotten why we are fighting.
