LEN WALLACE -
ACCORDIONISTA, CULTURE WARRIOR
& THE SQUEEZEBOX FROM HELL
Len RULES!” - Billy Bragg
"He looks like a hoodlum, sings like an angel, and plays accordion like a demon."
- Cat Haston, Victory Music Review
“Len Wallace offers a voice we need to hear.”
- Canadian Folk Music Bulletin
“In today’s society when what is considered ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ is judged in terms of how much money it can make; when human beings are judged and valued simply as functions and things, the poetic action of songs and music can liberate the human spirit. Music can speak the spirit of Freedom and solidarity reminding us who we are, where we came from and, ultimately, what we can choose to be. Artists, musicians, performers have a social obligation and choice to make because that spirit can indeed change the world.” - Len Wallace

THERE IT IS
written by Jayne Cortez
And if we don't fight
if we don't resist
if we don't organize and unify and
get the power to control our own lives
Then we will wear
the exaggerated look of captivity
the stylized look of submission
the bizarre look of suicide
the dehumanized look of fear
and the decomposed look of repression
forever and ever and ever
And there it is
