‚Ä¢WWPRD stands for What Would Pussy Riot Do? With rap lyrics bouncing between Jeffery Lewis and his band (reminiscent of his Crass covers album 10 Crass Songs) it's a conscience call to all artists to reconsider their motives when taking that sponsorship deal or wearing those sneakers or sunglasses pushed upon them by Corporations. Lewis tells them to ask themselves WWPRD? And do they really think there's no cost for taking those deals?
And Jeffrey Lewis walks the walk. Lewis is the classic DIY artist who has never had to compromise to a record label or promoter, because he does it all himself and does very well thank you, very much without anybody's help.
