Seattle, WA (March 8, 2017) – The Green Pajamas have something to say and they are saying it now. “Kill The Power” is their new digital single and video; clearly they do not like the presidency of Mr. Trump one bit.
Historically, the Green Pajamas have not been a political entity. In this
new world, that has changed – this is their second political video since the election and kicks things up a notch from their first, their version of Woody Guthrie’s Deportee (Plane Crash At Los Gatos), which was released before Trump’s inauguration.
Pajamas’ leader Jeff Kelly: This song is not about violence. “Kill the Power” is a phrase, like “cut (or kill) the lights,” and is stated in a theatrical sense – almost a pun, upon these troubled times. The Green Pajamas do not condone violence. Although this song is certainly angry – damn angry, to be truthful – ultimately – it is about talking back the power by way of organized, peaceful protest and, perhaps more importantly, all of us acknowledging – and taking back – the facts.
