Sustain 02:58
This is my answer to the question Of why choose love? Communities sustain life Communities sustain life Within a loving community We sustain ties By being compassionate And forgiving There is no better place To learn the art of loving Than in community Marvellous, marvellous Community Marvellous, marvellous Communities sustain life Communities sustain life Not nuclear families Not the couple And certainly not The rugged individualist Community Is what will save us You’re gonna have to do it In conjunction with your neighbours And your family And the people around you You will fail as a rugged individual You will survive As a member of a tribe Or a family When we do not choose love It does not change the fact That our existence on this planet Is one of interdependency What we spend So much of our time doing Is violating that interdependency Communities sustain life Community Communities sustain life Is what will save us There is no better place To learn the art of loving Than in community


Celebrating 10 years of Fold

It’s been a decade since we first got the band together and released Mr President, We’re In Trouble. It’s been one hell of a journey. We looked back at all of the voices on our records and realised that two people have left us in that time: bell hooks (1952—2021) and Michael Ruppert (1951—2014).

Although they may seem an unlikely pairing, their message for our future was much the same: communities sustain life. This was also our most important learning in all that time.

And so with joy and hope for the future we celebrate the lives and learnings of bell hooks and Mike Ruppert along with our own 10 year voyage.
