The song Belly of the Beast was written by Carl after attending the Occupy Wall Street protests at Times Square on 10/15/11 with Blake and Mecca Lecca's main dude Jonny Leather.
After the protests, a General Assembly was held at Washington Square park where Professor Gayatri Spivak of Columbia University gave a speech stressing the importance of political action by Occupy Wall Street demonstrators because they are in "the belly of the beast."
Some footage of Professor Gayatri's moving speech can be found here:
Because amplification is not allowed at public protests in New York City, those that attend General Assemblies must utilize a series of echoes to spread the message of speakers to the entire group, an experience that is truly powerful to witness and be a part of.
White Lights were recorded live during an in-studio we did at WBAR on 10/10/11. The song White Lights is featured on Howth's self-titled debut album.
