about

Chadbourne come back on vinyl after 10 years with “Roll Over Berlosconi”, an album that takes his name from a song that will be easily a new hymn against any form of abuse of authority and power, an argument always he hold dear.

The record contains some new songs (a cover of “Birthday”, from Beatles white album; “Roll over Berlosconi”, that talk about the Italian prime minister “adventures” in a chuck Berry style; the moving “Birthday song”, and the amazing “Election Song”, inspired by the last american election period) and new versions of some of his classics: an endless work of rewriting that is peculiar of his artistic career.

The entire album privileges the song-writing side of doc Chad more than the strict experimental side, the part of his work that better shows the “twilight zone” between pop music and avant-garde, that is the world we want to investigate. The superb cover is by the croatian artist Miro Zupa.

Track list (presented by Chadbourne)

A side:
1. Birthday [2:24]
This song came out of a workshop I was doing with the Friulian band Arbe Garbe, I was demonstrating methods of creating cover songs and since it was the birthday of my youngest daughter Lizzie and I was away from home we decided to make a tribute to her, using the classic song from the Beatles white album with a few changes in lyrics: she was turning 21 so I said "now you can drink, yeah!" for example. We recorded the song and sent it to her in college but it needs to be heard by the rest of the world.

2. Roll over berlosconi [3:37]
At the start of the February 2009 Italian tour I was sitting in the venue thinking about how I needed a protest song about Italy for the sets. Just then a Chuck Berry song came on the sound system in the club and I thought about how much I like practicing that style and a protest song about Berlosconi was written some 15 minutes later. However when I wrote that we should make his face look like a pizza pie I had no idea somebody would actually do that by chucking a statue of the Duomo at him!

3. I cut the wrong man [3:29]
This is based on a newspaper clipping, a case of mistaken identity at a church picnic with one old man attacking another with a knife.

4. Cop died for golf course [3:28]
This is also from a newspaper clipping about a native American insurrection in Quebec, Canada in the early '90s when there was an attempt to turn a sacred burial ground into a golf course. The song title was the actual news headline.

5. Breakin' the law everyday [6:39]
One of my most popular song, this ditty is about both anarchy and corruption and gets a new verse every now and then depending on what is happening.

6. Land of use to be [6:22]
When a man pretending to be an employee of the Tree Music company in Nashville contacted me about submitting songs for a new Merle Haggard album, I came up with this song because I
thought it was a perfect subject for Merle. The man turned out to be a janitor in the building who just was trying to get a free tape of my music, an ironic touch since Kris Kristofferson worked as a janitor for Tree during the period when he was unknown and pitching songs to Johnny Cash. Nowadays the whole world is the "land of used to be."

B side:
1. Birthday song [6:43]
I wrote this song on the morning of my 55th birthday in Hobart, Tasmania. Because of the number 55 I created chords with combinations of fifth intervals in them.

2. Our daily lead [3:09]
Certain events in Greensboro in the '80s inspired this song but it was given the psychedelic Shockabilly treatment so listeners would probably not realize it is a song about a bakery, a roominghouse and a guy that went on an acid trip, killed the landlady and burned the place down.

3. National propaganda radio [3:21]
While this song has been floating around for a few years, I stopped playing it after an all banjo show in New York City at the Bowery Poetry Club, then brought it back after watching a film of the show.

4. Old piano [5:23]
This is certainly one of my most popular songs and I am recording as many versions of it as possible, just try to stop me.

5. Election song [3:01]
Certain happenings during the Obama election prompted this incredible song: yes, educator Bill Ayres who was described as a "terrorist" by Sarah Palin was actually my daughter Jenny's day care attendant during the period when he was living underground under another name i.e. Tony.

6. Dreamt I was young again [3:23]
A dream.
