How To Kill The Poor With Irony

As I’ve mentioned before, I had this idea for an album of punk rock covers done in a folk / bluegrass style, which I kind of gave up on but recently re-invested myself in (it’s amazing what some nice recording mics can inspire in a person).

This one is the punk rock classic “Kill The Poor” by the Dead Kennedys.
