Library Book Of The World
Library Book Of The World catapults Nobacon into uncharted seas armed with all the tools of his trade, as longstanding member of the infamous anarchist collective Chumbawamba, and discovering new tricks along the way. Channeling the revolutionary fire of a proud lineage of conscientious agitators, Nobacon describes his role on the album as that of a “psychic medium plugged into the mainline of human history, hearing voices from present ghouls and future ghosts as well.” The result is both a self-contained manifesto and a companion to Smart Lies, Secret Wars and Rock \'n\' Roll, a history and current affairs book Nobacon is currently writing.
On Library Book Of The World, his first solo album in over two decades, Nobacon dredges up a motley crew of shipmates in the Pine Valley Cosmonauts and embarks on a long-distance voyage through the wreckage of history, setting a course for a future in which contemporary society crumbles about us. The veritable rogue’s gallery that is the Pine Valley Cosmonauts—old friends and fellow pint-hoisters Jon Langford (Mekons, Waco Brothers), Alan Doughty (Jesus Jones, Waco Brothers), multi-instrumenalist John Rice, drummer Dan Massey and accordionist Pat Brennan—joins Nobacon to kick up menacing refrains, ushering in the extinction of heedless environmental degradation and the multi-tentacled kraken of globalism.
Nobacon is the mad captain at the helm, wielding an oil can in one hand and a lighted match in the other, hearing the sea change coming in the wind.
\"...smart satire, poetic lyrics and quick and often humorous wit makes him stand out in a now chorus of political songwriters and commentators around the world. The style casts him as part of the older political dissenter, like Phil Ochs, which to be honest we need far more of these days. And it seems like we got just what we need in Danbert Nobacon.\" BrokenDial.com Dan Berkman
\"It\'s great, politically-charged piece of rock\'n\'roll powered by Mekon Jon Langford and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts, who give a wonderfully ramshackle, spontaneous feel to it all.\" Chris Nickson All Music Guide
\"On The Library Book Of The World Nobacon establishes himself as a prominent genre hopping solo artist and brings that musical depth of his previous act and pushes it into the forefront.\" Justin Scro Cashbox
\"Nobacon is one man who walks the anti-establishment walk, and his forceful words and rough, beefy music should remind us that there are more problems out there than the 6 o’clock news lets on.\" RACHEL HEISLER City Life
\"The album’s 15 tracks whirl with a storyteller’s keen sense of language and plotting, but Republicans and evangelicals might not get the joke.\" Janine Schaults Illinois Entertainer
