"1915" on Exclaim! TV
We recently caught up with co-frontman Chris No. 2 at Toronto's Ride Away Bikes, where he performed an acoustic rendition of "1915" from Anti-Flag's Occupy-inspired 2012 LP, The General Strike. No. 2 starts by singing lines from Leo Marks' poem "The Life That I Have," before increasing the tempo and breaking into a truncated version of "1915," which is based on the life and work of political activist Joe Hill.
