Story of the Earth feels like a song that time traveled to 2020 from the year 1988; a fast, raw, simple punk rock song, and the newest release from Team Dresch. Story harkens back to more old school Team spirit, closer to something off their first ever releases; it contains the classic dueling harmonies of Bleyle and Wilson, the paced-to-pounce pounding of Marcéo Martinez drums, while their Captain, Donna Dresch, pushes the pulse of the band with her speedy and precise strumming/shredding.
The first draft of this song came together in 2007, but we finished it up and recorded it in 2019 during the same sessions as the "Your Hands My Pockets" single. The lyrics center around climate change, the newly discovered disorientation of honey bees due to pesticide/herbicide usage (Colony Collapse Disorder), and the cruelty with which the human world has treated each other, our planet and it’s inhabitants.
So grab your beverage of choice, listen and feel the rage in the age of a global pandemic, a global climate disaster, and make the fuck sure to vote Trump out in November and knock down the patriarchal white supremacist capitalist wall of horror, it’s time for justice equity harmony and some goddamn it.
