Recorded in Monkey Marc‘s solar powered shipping container studio, ‘Asylum’ is the first release from Combat Wombat’s new album ‘Just Across The Border’.
Asylum contains vocals recorded secretly in MITA Broadmeadows detention centre by Husan an unaccompanied minor from Iraq.
Combat Wombat are a political hip-hop crew based in Melbourne. Renowned for taking bass bins hostage and blasting political fire in these unsettling times MC Elf Tranzporter, Izzy, Monkeymarc and DJ Wasabi take you on an unforgettable ride of truth and rights mixed with dub heavy bass.
The video ‘Asylum’ produced by Labrats and Pan Loop Productions is a retrospective of Australia’s brutal refugee policies. Over the last 16 years of Combat Wombat’s existence we have bared witness to the successive Australian governments’ inhumane treatment of asylum seekers.
