I've heard a ton of excellent protest music, and plenty of quality race-based hip hop from Indigenous Australians and new migrants. This is neither of those. This song is a well-intended but poorly executed musical commentary on John Howard's Northern Territory intervention policy which decries the tarring of all aboriginal people with the paedophile/alcoholic brush and argues for increased education and employment over paternalistic control measures. So anyway, not a bad message, but Jesus Christ does the music suck. The track is lifted from an album called A Funk Intervention, which should tell you everything you need to know about their sound.
