Another Army

Vince Gould has been a fairly regular part of the Army of the Broken Hearted, and a prime influence on our manifesto. Anyway, he’s started his own army: The Rebel Army! Here’s some action at Starbucks…

Congratulating Starbucks on their rebellious refusal to pay taxes! And applauding customers for rebelliously drinking coffee there anyway! Flouting social responsibility! “Rule rebellion! Rebellion rules the waves…!” and so on. My two year old son loved it, and even the customers who were being (ironically) chastised were tickled because Vince’s army General character is very funny. I’m glad action doesn’t have to be a miserable hostile thing.

So yes, the whole thing is the inverse of the ABH in that it’s a joke army – ironically mocking the rebellious spirit of the age, which is really nothing but conformity.

Our mutual friend John Napier says the RA and the ABH should have a war…

The Rebel Army’s free EP, Operation freedom…

And on a thematically related note, Vince’s free EP, Revolution in Your Pocket (because revolution is has become as ridiculous a concept as rebellion, says Vince).
