Late Night: Lunatic Fringe
Remember these guys? They’re the members of the Canadian group Red Rider, they were right, and this was their most popular song. Unfortunately, they didn’t realize that the lunatic fringe was backed to the hilt by Big Business.
It was a big hit in the early 1980s, yet I very much doubt that this song would be allowed to become a hit on American radio today. The lunatic fringe have too much control over our organs of mass communication, as mass media ownership is concentrated into an ever-fewer number of ever-richer hands.
So what’s on your mind tonight?
