about

Obama promised to close this CIA torture chamber when he came to power and somehow that never happened. Some prisoners have been incarcerated there illegally since 2003. Two Australians also spent time there that John Howard's government did nothing about. This is the full version of the song as conceived after the first edited version appeared on 'Last Man Out'. Close Guantanamo!

lyrics

Ahhhh!
Dishonest ape signed off, didn't care a lot
If a single case gets heard,
It's been designed, this bottom line, now tyranny must work...
So make a line where cameras whirr on their dead man's conga line,
Don't care much, at all for them, cos I'm just followin' orders!
In the detail, in the detail, in the detail of every line!
Devil's detail, devil's detail! Devil's derailed all your rights!
So chain 'em up, we chain 'em up, we chain 'em up...
Cos Castro backed right off, we paid up front
Revolution's just a word...
If we produce the goods the neighbourhood
Might not feel feel so disturbed...
So kill the lights and bring the rope,
The severed hopes and lap-top spies,
Tryin' hard, to stand on guard,
I guess we best ignore them flies...
In the detail, in the detail, in the detail of every line!
Devil's detail, devil's detail!
The Devil's derailed all your rights!
Chain 'em up, chain 'em up!
We chain 'em up! We chain 'em up! Oh!
Yeah a yeh! OH!
In the detail, in the detail,
in the deep seal of every line!
Devil's detail, the Devil's detail!
Devil's derailed all your rights!
Chain 'em up, we chain 'em up!
We chain 'em up! We chain 'em up!
OH! Close it down!
CLOSE IT DOWN! WOH!
OH! Close GUANTANAMO!
WOH! Close GUANTANAMO!
OH! Close it down!
Close GUANTANAMO!
Close it down, hose it down!
Close GUANTANAMO!

about

Gas & the General Sydney, Australia

Excerpt from music blog review of GWB's ‘Last Man Out’ from the most recent altcountryforum in the Netherlands.

"The great strength of the Gas Wylde Band’s "Last Man Out" is the fact that the politically critical words are supported by patiently crafted musical compositions. A brilliant album from a promising band based on Australian soil. Finger-licking good.”
