How the Armchair Generals Came Together… A: In times of uncertainty, necessity demands Solutions. –The date was 2004… “War President” George W. Bush was into his second year of a devastatingly bloody invasion of Iraq. 70,000 refugees were dead or dying in Sudan's Darfur region from war and disease. A huge tsunami in the Indian Ocean took the lives of over 100,000 human beings…Four years later; America becomes bogged down in two “hot” wars, while the U.S. financial system collapses: Obviously, we all are living in uncertain times of both challenge & regeneration. As musicians, Oyane, Bebo & Osoosi were removed from most of the direct affects of terrible war and financial ruin; however the spirit of the times began reaching out to us. No matter how we busied ourselves in our own separate musical enterprises, a common feeling gripped us. It wasn’t long before our conversations revealed the following collective observation: Why hasn’t a renewed, 1960’s-like revolution emerged to challenge and inspire people living NOW, in this time? Our search for artistic revolution became a catalyst for musical inspiration….an inspiration to create the Armchair Generals. Why “Armchair Generals”? A Military General makes strategies to win land wars. Armchair Generals make music to win mind wars. Radio, Broadcast/Cable, Satellite, Internet are our theaters of combat. Acoustic/electronic instrumentation played in the pocket is our weapons of choice. Of course; the battlefield is your mind.
