"Punk Opera: CheLennon" by The Oz.

This full-length experimental "punk opera" project includes 13 unique post-punk  versions of John Lennon revolutionary and rare songs mixed with 6 reprises of politically intense interviews with him.

"Created in the belief
that the Beatles were more than a great band;
they generated an atmosphere for good
throughout the world,
uniting people in many cultures,
and through their timeless music
and the optimistic subjects of their songs,
continue to inspire new generations."

The Beatles are appreciated all over the world. We welcomed visitors from far and near at the second Ottawa Beatles Convention in 1996 at the Ottawa Museum of Science and Technology, where John Lennon's psychedelic Rolls Royce was on display.
