Boots Riley & Tom Morello Are... Street Sweeper

Intent on crafting a soundtrack to the revolution, Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine) and Boots Riley (of The Coup) have hooked up like Voltron to form Street Sweeper. Set to go on tour with Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction, Street Sweeper's debut album is on the horizon - and you know I'll be checking for it and updating you on its release. Below you'll find two preview tracks -- to get a feel of what Street Sweeper is all about -- and a video of the duo's origins. To quote Boots: "This is a time when the working class is being fleeced left and right. More families will be homeless and more people will be jobless. They'll need something to listen to on their iPods while storming Wall Street."
