Who: The musical project of 60s survivor Otto von Ruggins.
An experimental, New York based, act being around for light-years,
mixing Space-Goth-Tribal-New-Wave rock and other me(n)tal bangs.
Think legendary eccentrics Devo fooling around with avant-garde
freaks The Residents.
von Ruggins also is: “I teach the History of Rock and Roll using Little Steven (Van Zandt’s) curriculum @ teachrock.org at a local high school five minutes from my home. I’m one of eleven pilot teachers he chose in the entire country and I feel very blessed to get paid to play the music I grew up with. I remember Little Steven at The Electric Prunes concert in Williamsburg back in 2001 stating to vocalist James Lowe’s son that he had to carry the torch as the ‘60s was the greatest decade – he described it as the Renaissance Period. I have to agree – it was the only time in the history of rock and roll when the music changed the culture – getting a President (Johnson) not to run because of war protests and helping through marches and music to get civil rights legislation passed.”
Inspired by the horror war in Ukraine
Kongress has a new merciless sledgehammer
out called NuSense.
The message is loud and clear… FUCK PUTIN!
You’re such a nuisance
One man shouldn’t have such power
To eliminate the Protest Dance
But you grow weaker by the hour
You should be squashed like a bug
You’re such a thug
You need a mug shot
And a place to burn where it’s hot
When the good is gone
The bad carry on
You need to be Put in your place
к черту путина…

KONGRESS featuring political troublemaker Otto von Ruggins is an experimental, New York based, act being around for light years. Their mix of Space-Goth-Tribal-New-Wave rock is thrillingly mental. Think legendary Devo fooling around with avant-garde weirdos The Residents. I know, anything can happen.
Latest single THE UGLY AMERICAN says it all. I’m quite sure this psych-o-delic saga is inspired by 1958 novel The Ugly American by Eugene Burdick and William Lederer.
“The concept of Freedom is not what it would seem to be, even here in the United States. Under the present regime, Freedom has been curtailed by the dictates of a White House that wants a purified race, purging its citizens randomly via weapons of war” says von Ruggins.
Need anymore hints about this loud and clear rant. I don’t think so. megalomaniac
Donald Dumped is, without a shadow of a doubt, the equivalent of the ugliest American ever in America’s political history, who tried/tries to shut up anybody who does not lick his ass and represents the historical evil forces of the land of the free and home of the brave.
The Ugly American
Hiding in the shadows
Glaring in the spotlights
Claiming they’re our heroes
While they violate rights
Killing with immunity
Some because they’re not whites
Failing the community
Causing protests & fights
Some adhere to statues
That camouflage the treason
The ignorance that they choose
Tradition is their reason
They honor flags of race abuse
No matter who’s dehumanized
Remnants of slavery with a noose
Keep black people traumatized
