The new track is a special message for the Republicans in the House of Representatives, each of whom are addressed by name in the song.
“I contacted Speaker of the House, John Boehner regarding my concerns about his team’s failure to cooperate with President Obama and avoid the fiscal cliff. When he didn’t respond we wrote a song and recorded a video as a creative way to reach him with our message” explains older sister, Vivian Ramone.
“My Dear Republicans (The Fiscal Cliff Song)” and a link to the music video are available at shisho.bandcamp.com.
ShiSho will be performing this Friday, January 4th at Buzzbin Art and Music Shop’s FROTH FEST in Canton, Ohio’s Arts District.
Sisters, Vivian and Midge Ramone are the outsider-art band ShiSho from Kent, OH. Although they're only 16 and 12 years old, they've been making quirky indie, pop-punk-folk music for 8 years. ShiSho is described as They Might Be Giants meets Kimya Dawson meets the Dead Milkmen. Though ShiSho are kids, they are not necessarily a band FOR kids. "College radio & Indie & punk moms love us for some reason," says younger sister, Midge. ShiSho performs mostly original songs and have shared the stage with numerous bands including, Joe Jack Talcum, The Smoking Popes and They Might Be Giants. Their crowd favorite, Rocks and Penalties, released on England’s Filthy Little Angel’s Records, is about poison rainbows, puking unicorns and a Smiths reunion.
