JOHN FORSTER is an award-winning songwriter, humorist and record producer and has claimed the satirical crown long abandoned by Tom Lehrer. He's one very funny songwriter. “Forster has the world view of George Carlin, the musical-parody chops of Frank Zappa in his glory days, musically and lyrically clever in ways that Al Yankovic can only dream about.” (Paul D. Lehrman, The Boston Phoenix)
