Vic writes in the tradition of “Broadside, the National Topical Song Magazine” of Sis Cunningham and Gordon Friesen, and his songwriter heroes, Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs. Vic is probably best known for his tribute song to Phil Ochs, “Broadside Balladeer”, and for his song for war crimes whistle-blower Bradley Manning, “Courage To Resist”. His recent update of his “No Nuke Blues” was featured on Sandy LeonVest's Progessive Radio show “Political Analysis” after Vic met her through her Facebook site called “Solar Times”.
Younger brother Rob Sadot plays electric guitar and has been a big part of the sound and style of Vic's recordings over the years. He visited Vic from the east coast and they recorded three songs in Berkeley's Robot Envy Studio. One of those songs, “Full Spectrum Dominance” is now a free mp3 at SoundCloud. [soundcloud.com/broadsideballadeer/full-spectrum-dominance], written by Vic Sadot for the visit of Bruce Gagnon, founder of the Global Network Against Nuclear Power and Weapons in Space [space4peace.org].
