Five Times August is an indie solo act by Brad Skistimas, one of the few truly rebellious musicians around. If Right Said Fred are the punk rock of the pop scene, then Five Times August is the punk rock of the indie scene.
I’m not kidding. Take a listen to my conversation with Right Said Fred to understand why. It is unfortunate that most of the music industry succumbed to the pharmaceutical indoctrination of the fake pandemic. (Listen to my conversation with Denis Rancourt to realise why there was no pandemic.) It’s bizarre when you consider all the bands and singers that traditionally stuck it to the man and ended up becoming American Idiots who Raged For The Machine.
I have historically preferred the heavier stuff (such as Springbok Nude Girls) and have never really been into indie music and, as such, had not heard of Five Times August until all this lockdown nonsense began. But a silver lining of the plandemic is that my brain has been forced to rewire itself in a number of ways for all the right reasons.
Brad’s lyrics are fantastic and add a layer of substance with which I can relate. Check out his website and YouTube channel. I am particularly partial to his cover of Tom Petty’s I Won’t Back Down.
Brad’s Twitter profile is on fire, especially because he’s approaching establishment A-listers with reminders of their antagonism towards those of us who rejected the propaganda. Pink, who was paid by Pfizer to promote the jab, blocked him as a result.
Brad joined me for a conversation in which we chatted about
- his musical journey;
- the disappointing music industry;
- Covid propaganda; and
- Donald Trump.
