Former Harlette, Ula Hedwig, Has A Track On The New Album ‘Celebrate’ By Win Marcinak

Unlike the blues, dance music has long been the province of gay men, as both performers and fans. On Celebrate (Burning Tyger), Win Marcinak blends covers (Three Dog Night’s “Celebrate,” Sylvester’s “Disco Heat/Mighty Real,” Kajagoogoo’s “Too Shy,” and Aretha’s “Rock Steady”) with originals. Ulla Hedwig, one of Bette Midler’s original Harlettes, sings with Marcinak on “We Are What We Are.”

It started with a lazy populace being mindfucked by neoliberalism and it’s cohorts, The Clintons, Bush, Obama, and now Trump. We had a chance to start over with Sanders but a rigged primary and a complicit media took care of that. Russia had nothing to do with it, In fact, it’s a farce. Mueller was supposed to find collusion, but the goalposts have been moved to highlight finances. But believe me Trump is not the only culprit, in fact he may have exposed all the greed that has been happening for decades under the smiling and charasmatic faces of the Clintons, the Obamas, and to some degree Bush. We have a long way to go and it starts with education. No wonder the govt wants to gut it so bad. And I would venture to say these are not the beliefs of Bette Midler, but my page. I win Read More
