One Day as a Lion

One Day as a Lion

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA (USA)


A defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. Itâ??s a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask. One Day As A Lion is a recorded interaction between Zack de la Rocha and Jon Theodore from Los Angeles, California.

The name taken from the infamous 1970 black and white, captured by legendary Chicano photographer George Rodriguez featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights. It reads: â??Itâ??s better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.â?? This record is a stripped down attempt to realize this sentiment in sound.
