Ran across some music from one of my favorite underappreciated Atlanta-based bands, Uncle Green. Here’s their 1989 tune about (or so I would deduce) messianism, “He’s the Man.” Since the band’s song “Wake Up Now” is not available on YouTube, this is as good a waking up song–in multiple respects–as I can find.
