Interview with 'Blackbird Raum'

Blackbird Raum is a band from Santa Cruz, California, where they have become a prominent part of the downtown street life. They are well known for their influence on Gypsy Punk but are generally considered to be the founders of a new genre. Influenced by American String Bands of the 1920's and Modern Anarcho-Punk, their music brings together rhythms of olde-tyme music with lyrics that reflect the sense of impending collapse of the current civilization that pervades much of green anarchist culture in modern times, as well as criticizing the human and environmental destruction caused by current civilization.
