Friday Factory Tune: Silver Carp

A timely tale of the Asiatic carp invading the Land of a Thousand Lakes, performed by Twin Cities veterans, Boiled in Lead. As the Worthington (MN) Globe reported:

In “Silver Carp,” a tune from Boiled in Lead’s latest album, “Silver,” the Department of Natural Resources takes on the villainous scourge of the lakes — the Asiatic carp, which in the song not only terrorize the local fish but even stage a murderous assault on a local fisherman. “Oh the carp are coming, oh the carp are here,” warn the lyrics — all based on the true story of the silver carp, an invasive species advancing up the Mississippi river and threatening to spread to Minnesota lakes.
