It’s The Emergency CD of the year, just in time for Christmas.


EDIT: Feck, I really should read this site from time to time. If I did, I’d have seen that Anto has already blogged about this CD this week. Sorry!

It’s over on mine so I thought I’d share the video of Brain Cowen being kidnapped that has landed in my inbox with you as well.

Shocking what some people will do to push their new CD – Use Democracy Sensibly – featuring two topical, politically satirical but above all hilarious tracks of them doing funny stuff. Erm, yes.

Anyhow, in The Emergency’s Christmas Carol, we’re treated to

After collapsing into a customary deep sleep in Leinster House, acting Taoiseach Brian Cowen receives a chilling visitation from the ghost of Eamon deValera who sends three spirits; The Ghost of Governments Past, the Ghost of Governments Present and the Ghost of Governments Yet To Come, to visit and make him repent for the error of his ways.

There’s also A TD’s Christmas Song, Wheelie Dealy, Clown car breathalyser, Vincent Browne and the celebrity candidates of doom and The Judges discuss their pay on it.

Use Democracy Sensibly is written and performed by The EmergencyMorgan C Jones, Eoin Byrne, Joe Taylor, Dermot Carmody, Karen Ardiff and Nick McGiveny. Anto‘s post on their recent night in The Laughter Lounge is here.
