The reaction to "Patriot Acts":

"A contribution to the good fight...a bright spark in a naughty world" (David Constantine, poet)

"An important record, and should be experienced by everyone" (Thomas Florek, TV-30 Princeton, NJ)

"Keep the songs coming; there's no shortage of outrageous material...We'll be waiting for Patriot Acts II." (Wayne Sandholtz, former director, Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies)

"'What Our Children Is Learning' is a bloody masterpiece." (Darren Beech,

"I'm enamored of this CD." (Bill Realman Stella, WRSU-FM)


Geoff wrote and recorded these songs in the summer of 2004 and played them at Kerry/Edwards and Concerts for Change fundraisers until the election. You're thinking "Blue State," but the catchy tunes, thoughtful lyrics and true love of America behind each song have ensured that all types of Americans have bought and enjoyed "Patriot Acts": Republicans, Democrats, Greens, Libertarians, soldiers home from Iraq, soldiers en route to Iraq, protesters at the GOP convention in NYC, etc.

Produced by Eric Kvortek and Geoff Baker at The Gasworks (E. Brunswick, NJ) and Geoff's basement (Highland Park, NJ). Mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Tenafly, NJ). Geoff wrote all the songs; played acoustic guitars, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, keyboards, drums and a cardboard box; programmed loops; and sang. Eric Kvortek sang bass on "Khashoggi" because Geoff is a sissy and couldn't hit the low notes. Chris Wargo played bass on "What Our Children Is Learning."

* WARNING: "What Our Children Is Learning" contains words that may offend some listeners; it's not my fault Bush and Cheney have potty mouth. If I had told a US Senator to go eff himself, or called a reporter an a-hole in front of a live microphone, my mom would have washed my mouth out with soap.
