“Let’s Get Busy” is the musical result of a songwriting class at Widney High, a public, special education school in Los Angeles. The students have written songs that reflect their experiences growing up disabled in an exciting and unforgiving city. The topics of their songs range from the fear we all have visiting the doctor to a way to vocalize how to stand up for what they think is right, by rewriting the lyrics to “Respect” transforming it into an anthem for those with disabilities. The kids bring an honesty to the songs that is pure and refreshing and real.
Being part of the music industry can make one tired and jaded about music and life in general. Bands and labels throw around fake sales figures and chart positions and keep thousands of attorneys in usiness,battling each other… radio stations accept payola for pushing putrid pablum on a brain dead public… so called music magazines take money from high priced PR firms for plastering has been heroin addicts all over their pages… The Kids of Widney High is unaffected by any of that crap. These kids make music that is real. These kids make music for the joy of it. It is a tribute to these kids and their teachers!
We started Ipecac for this very reason, because we love music. We are very proud to end our first year with this release.
