We Are All Prostitutes
Welcome to Liberty City
As The Veneer of Democracy Starts To Fade. This album hit me hard growing up in Toronto. I had a c90 with Veneer on one side, and Public Enemy’s first album on the other. Yeah, that’s right, heavier as Henry VIII’s food bill. Politically and musically, it’s brutal, informative, it demands your attention, cuts a swath through mediocracy with a rusty but funky knife.
