Cass and Bradass

Bradley Manning's pre-court trial, to determine whether the solider will face a full court martial hearing for his part in the Wikileaks cables release in 2010, has started.

Cass McCombs has penned and now released a song, called 'Bradley Manning' funnily enough,  to highlight the plight Manning now finds himself in.  As well as carrying on the century-old tradition of issue-based protest songs, it's also a succinct round-up of the story and a great song in it's own right.

You can watch Cass debut it live and also download the track from Democracy Now, here.
