The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy was an industrial/hip-hop band which sadly produced only one album on their own, 1992’s “Hypocrisy Is The Greatest Luxury”. (A second effort “Spare Ass Annie And Other Tales” was a collaboration with William S. Burroughs).
Oh, what an album it was. It was more landslide than a landmark, its political and social messages on par with Gil Scott Heron and other activists. The album still stands up today, worth listening to for its message an its music.
There are a couple of weak moments on the album, but most of its themes and messages stand the test of time and are still relevant today. The standout tracks:
- Television, the Drug of the Nation
- Language of Violence
- The Winter of the Long Hot Summer
- INS Greencard A-19 191 500
- California Über Alles
“California” is a cover, updated to talk about then-governor Pete Wilson.
