The rally was led by Chizu Hamada and Steve Zeltzer. It featured many Bay Area community activists concerned about Fukushima’s ongoing release of radiation and the threat posed by the similar situation of Diablo Canyon Nuke Plant, which was built on the Pacific ocean beach over an earthquake fault. The crowd joins Vic Sadot in singing “No Nuke Blues”, a song about the Three Mile Island Accident in 1979 in Pennsylvania, the Chernobyl Accident in 1986 in the former Soviet Union, and the Fukushima Disaster on March 11, 2011 in Japan. That segment starts at 1:04:30.

NO NUKE BLUES – Fukushima Update Version by Berkeley Broadside Balladeer Vic Sadot. FREE MP3! Get it at SoundCloud! Use it! 

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 was written in 2011 about the ongoing Fukushima catastrophe. 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!

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 owner Sammy Fielding as sound engineer.

No Nuke Blues was first written by Vic Sadot in 1979 about the Three Mile Island accident on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The Crazy Planet Band played at a number of anti-nuclear events and released the song on an LP titled “Ride the Wind” in 1988. That version included a new verse about the nuclear accident in 1986 at Chernobyl in the Soviet Union, now Russia. This acoustic 2012 version has a new verse about the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan in 2011. 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 owner Sammy Fielding as sound engineer.
