Music for the Banger’s Heart: Propagandhi Gives us a Good Thrashing

Supporting Caste, the newest offering from Winnipeg’s Propagandhi has the kind of heart that makes you want to laugh, sob, raise your fist, and dissolve into a puddle of punk rock gratitude. Sprinkling their lyrics with characteristic irony and sarcastic political critiques, the searing honesty and blunt vulnerability of the band nonetheless cuts through as clearly as their fast and intricate riffs. In this interview, Chris Hannah (guitarist and a lead vocalist for the band) discusses the inspiration for the album, including some of its most controversial songs, such as one track that (tongue firmly planted in cheek) turns a “humane meat” advocate into a decadent dinner. Deeply self-reflexive but never narcissistic, Propagandhi makes music that is best listened to on repeat.
