BERKELEY CALLING BLOG APRIL 15, 2015 BY TRUTH TROUBADOUR. “NO NUKE BLUES FUKUSHIMA UPDATE” Video Released by Vic Sadot. Lyrics, photos, and links! Hit the text or the photo to link to the blog!
The original “No Nuke Blues” was written in 1979 about the Three Mile Island accident on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The song was updated with a verse about the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 in the former Soviet Union. Unfortunately, a new verse needed to be written in 2011 about the ongoing Fukushima nuclear catastrophe in Japan. This version has Vic Sadot on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano accordion. Eric Golub plays violin. This recording was done in Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley, CA with Sammy Fielding as sound engineer.
Here’s the Fukushima update verse:
They say earthquakes and tidal waves messed up the best of plans!
There are deadly radiation leaks from Fukushima in Japan!
Contamination’s spreading through the land, the air, and sea!
It’s time to put an end to this insane nuke industry!
