At he beginning of the nineties, after the black militant 'junkyard funk' of The Beatnigs and the aggressive 'industrial rap' of The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, singer Michael Franti started a new band: Spearhead. This band is a vehicle for his sincere and confronting lyrics, words he wraps in funk, soul and reggae influenced hip-hop destined for a broad audience. The almost six foot seven Franti comments in a grooving manner on controversial subjects like immigration problems, AIDS and capital punishment, against which he makes a profound statement on Stay Human, his record before last. In the lyrics of his protest song Bomb the World, written as an answer to 9-11, he gets tough again. “You can bomb the world to pieces”,he sings “But you can't bomb it into peace.” His new album Everyone Deserves Music is a variation on the old theme 'make love not war'.
