Mixing Pop and Politics (6)

Obscure Factoid of the Day

Ralph Nader's running mate for the forthcoming US Presidential Election, Matt Gonzalez, was the bass player in the rock band, John Heartfield.

John who? Helmut Herzfelde.

Examples of Heartfield's work and further info about this world famous photomontagist and anti-fascist is available at this website.

Unfortunately, it turns out that Matt Gonzalez's band is the first recorded instance of someone who has played music in the past 25 years to not have made a music page for themselves and placed it on MySpace.
