There's probably no one more shrill than Ed Hamell of Hamell on Trial, whose most recent album Songs for Parents Who Enjoy Drugs, is, while shrill, also a kind of sweet rumination about the difficulties of raising a kid when you have a sordid and a national sordid national presence. The song Values addresses the difficulties of teaching your children morality in the Busha era, and there's also a naughty song about Ann Coulter which very shrilly addresses just how debased our political discourse has become, and not because of foul mouthed bloggers or one-man acoustic punk shows.
Here's a free legal download of the song Inquiring Minds.
Here's a video of a performance of a different tune from a local club in Philly.
Remember, kids, support shrillness in all of its forms because only shrillness can save America.
