Roy Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for social justice to stages, screens and airwaves for thirty-odd years. (And they’ve been thirty ODD years.) “This Machine” is ninety minutes of Roy’s songs, at turns heartfelt and hilarious. It’s laughter and encouragement for progressive-minded people who need a lot of both.
With his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby, Roy is celebrating the release of “This Machine: The Best of Roy Zimmerman,” a double album set containing their runaway song parody “Vote Him Away (The Liar Tweets Tonight).”
Joni Mitchell says, “Roy’s lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection.”
