Twenty-two songs recorded between 2001 - 2008, "highlighting" the travesty that is the worst Administration in modern American history, the Bush/Cheney Crime Cabal. Alternative/post punk/satirical/political rock.
Originally formed in 1979 as an offshoot of the Los Angeles Rock Against Racism chapter, BENEDICT ARNOLD & THE TRAITORS released their first single, \"Kill the Hostages\" b/w \"Red Alert\" in 1980. Their second release, \"No More Heroes or Gods,\" a 7-inch six-song vinyl ep, followed in 1982, and included Sam \"Sluggo\" Phipps of OINGO BOINGO and former ZAPPA\'S MOTHERS OF INVENTION member Don Preston on the song \"I Hate Sports,\" but by 1983 the band had mutated into psychedelic/punk band, THE HUNDREDTH MONKEY, which is another story...
Re-grouped in 2000, The Traitors started recording new material, with the participation of four out of five original 1980 band members.
The resultant CD, \"Star Spangled Bummer,\" is a 22 song satirical/political/punk/rock epic (with a token \"country\" song), inspired by the disastrous Bush/Cheney Crime Cabal.
Lastly, the CD features cover art by Los Angeles \"Lowbrown\" artist Jaime GERMS Zacarias, and the animated music video of \"Death Penalty for Pot\" can be viewed on YouTube.com.
