The Kink’s “Money and Corruption” and “I’m Your Man” – Mr. Flash as Political Huckster


“Oh God how I love this land” (Mr. Flash)

Why does that sentiment sound familiar?

“Money & Corruption” and “I’m Your Man” are another great highlight of the Kink’s rock opera “Preservation, Act 2” wherein we see that the people were swindled by the political savvy of the deceitful and greedy Mr. Flash.

Sounds like aspirations for Leviathan and folly all over again. But look on the bright side folks, at least we can thank notorious past & present politicians for some great rock songs.
