The Bastard Fairies are a rock group consisting of guitarist and songwriter Robin Davey and lyricist Yellow Thunder Woman from the Yankton Sioux Tribe. Here, RPM brings you a Bastard Fairies playlist, for your viewing pleasure and edification.
The group gained controversial publicity with their edgy music and videos. The Coolest 8 Year Old In The World Talks About O'Reilly especially sparked a lot of internet attention - the video featured commentary on Bill O'Reilly from Fox News and his views of violence and youth in the media by an 8 year old actress.
That video garnered the YouTubes honours of bringing the band to the #18 spot of most subscribed musicians and #31 in the list of most viewed musicians on the YouTube network.
In 2006, The Bastard Fairies also produced the award-winning documentary The Canary Effect which focuses on the colonial history of America.
Now on a hiatus to pursue other goals and artistry, the work of The Bastard Fairies remain a force within music and activism, challenging the boundaries of expression and showing us that originality is alive and well in the world of music and art.
Here we bring you a playlist of their music videos including the internet phenomenon The Coolest 8 Year Old In The World Talks About O'Reilly.
