Public Enemy, Billy Bragg, Alabama 3, Roots Manuva, Chumbawamba, Coldcut, Massive Attack, Nitin Sawhney, Sia and Ani DiFranco
are among the rock, rap, pop and dance artists who are inspiring the growing anti-war movement by contributing music to the fundraising compilation "PEACE NOT WAR".
The double album brings together 31 songs from different genres, by culturally diverse artists - from established recording
stars to unsigned musicians, opposing the War On Terror and making noise for peace. The compilation will be sold worldwide, with all proceeds going to
local peace groups in each country.
The peaceful explosion sparked in September when musicians Kelly and Mudge of Australian band Change put out an email for
contributions for a fundraiser CD. "When we got involved in the anti-war movement in London," say Kelly and Mudge, "it was clear that the Stop the War
Coalition were making a huge impact with little funding, and we hoped that music could fund them to do more, as well as inspire people to get active."
They had no idea of the depth of resistance to the war within the music industry.
"you can keep the pentagon, keep the propaganda
keep each and every TV that's been trying to convince me
to participate in some prep school punk's plan to perpetuate retribution"
Ani DiFranco: Self Evident
"Over 60 bands submitted a song: many had already written about the war and others went straight into the studio when they
heard about the compilation. The higher up the music industry food chain we ventured, the more musicians we uncovered who were interested. We were
also surprised to be offered help from managers and record companies, manufacturers and press: everyone was coming out against the war.
"Bin Laden once drank from America's cup
just like that election down in Florida, this shit doesn't all add up
'cause it's all about the price of oil"
Billy Bragg: The Price of Oil
The combination of established and unsigned acts on Peace Not War has not only yielded a unique mixture of genres, it's also a
long-overdue redefinition of what protest music sounds like. Fat beats, crunchy guitars and cosmic synths surround the odd folk song, while lyrics
range from sharp criticism to satire and positivity about the peace movement.
"why is Tony Blair so constantly ensconced in the posterior of the American President?"
Tariq Ali (Asian Dub Foundation remix): Not In My Name
"Mass protest is making a difference, and we believe musicians can inform and inspire people to stop the war. If musicians
represent popular feeling, we get the sense that a peaceful revolution has already started...and is getting louder."
"this is the world I want to live on, this is the world I want to love
and we are the people to make a change, can't leave it up to the man above"
Bindi Blacher: Down
