Displaced Dads is an Australian men's group, with some musical dads, from Townsville, in the Australian state of Queensland. In (about) 1996 they, as a one time project, cut a CD of songs, named No Child Aboard, that too many non-custodial fathers can relate too much too well. A number, but not all, of these songs are available via the Internet as MP3 files (note they still hold copyright, but the information has been made available). Listen, the songs are good -- and inspiring.

    Songs from No Child Aboard

  1. Supression: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/manumit/files/mp3s/suppression.mp3
    So when men get together, to air their common voice
    To raise concerns about custody, to give children more choice
    When all this is said and done, the man is seen as bad
    The man is seen as a right-wing backlash, he's seen as mad

    Chorus
    Cause you see: Any man who opens his mouth
    Is labelled as a red-neck from the south
    He's a Right-wing militant chauvinist pig
    On a patriarchal power trip
    Yeah everyone knows men deserve to be stereotyped.

  2. Why Why Why?: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/manumit/files/mp3s/why.mp3

  3. Language: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aspa/files/Language.mp3

  4. I Must be Dumb: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/manumit/files/mp3s/dumb.mp3

  5. Mummy Where Is Daddy?: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/manumit/files/mp3s/wheresdad.mp3

  6. Crappy Fathers Day: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/manumit/files/mp3s/fathersday.mp3 -- this song is one that too many divorced dads know about.

  7. Men are all Sick Bastards: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/manumit/files/mp3s/sickbastards.mp3
    Men are all sick bastards
    Especially those ones who care
    I think the ones who love their kids
    Should be in psychiatric care
