Jamie Kilstein is one of today’s most powerful progressive voices, his righteous rants and searing social commentary earning him international applause and the enraged ire of the vast right wing media conspiracy. His current single “Love Song To Edward Snowden” coinciding with the new Oliver Stone movie “Snowden” and recent album “A Bit Much,” sees the NJ-born provocateur unleashing his own intrepid brand of comedy, colloquial punk blues, and hilarious acute insights with riotous riffs and rants you can tear down the system to. Kilstein’s trademark wit, burns with wrath, and compassion, and feeds new ammunition in his ongoing war with the greedheads and homophobes, misogynists and morons that stand in the way of both peace and progress.
Kilstein crafted a fairly traditional stand-up but as progressive politics grew more central to the act, he started working out material at New York City slam poetry clubs like the Nuyorican Poetry Café, redirecting his humor into long form diatribes built upon rhythm and rage.
Citizen Radio, the long-running, member-supported Internet radio show he co-hosts and co-created with life partner Allison Kilkenny, further boosted Kilstein’s profile, earning him a number of famous fans from among the comics, writers, and musicians he admires most, people like Moby, Bad Religion frontman Greg Graffin, and such like-minded modern punk bands as Rise Against and Anti-Flag. Particular support – professional and personal – came from Robin Williams, a friend and mentor since the late comic caught a politically charged gig in San Francisco.
With that in mind, earlier this year Kilstein released “A Bit Much” produced by veteran indie rock producer Kevin Salem (Giant Sand, Mike Doughty), via New Jersey’s Don Giovanni Records, toured the country with his band The Agenda and played the New Alternative Music Festival, NJ’s legendary Asbury Park Convention Center.
Indeed, Kilstein has long swum in the same slipstream as bands like Anti-Flag or Against Me! but was separated from his fellow outsiders – “the transgender feminist vegans” – by the limits of genre. Even more exciting is the opportunity his stand-up and album “A Bit Much” allow him to connect with a younger audience more than ever before.
